This satisfying snack will help your health in several ways. The fat, protein, and fiber in peanuts are all healthy and are plant-based.  Research on peanuts shows that all of these components promote health and reduce the risk of chronic disease.

Peanuts also have significant levels of phytosterols, well known for their ability to reduce cholesterol.   Flavonoids are also found in peanuts-they reduce inflammation and inhibit platelets from sticking to arteries.
