Today’s #SuperfoodProfile highlights peanuts, one of the world’s most popular crops. Peanuts are actually legumes although they share many characteristics with nuts. With significant levels of monounsaturated fatty acids including oleic acid, peanuts may lower bad cholesterol levels. Peanuts are a good source of dietary fiber which may aid in growth and development and contain resveratrol, an antioxidant which has been found to have a protective function against cancers, heart disease, degenerative nerve disease, Alzheimer’s disease and viral/fungal infections.
