Is Peanut Butter Bad for You?



For more info: https://draxe.com/peanut-butter-nutri...
In this video Iâ??m going to answer the question, Is peanut butter bad for you? The answer is yes and no. It depends on how much you consume, the variety of nut youâ??re eating, and what the rest of your diet looks like.

To put it simply, peanut butter can be harmful because peanuts are high in omega-6 fats, which causes inflammation. We do not consume enough omega-3 fats, which reduce inflammation. Secondly, peanuts are grown on the ground and can develop mold, which can be a factor in a lot of kidâ??s allergy developments today.
If you want to eat your peanut butter and still be healthy, here are some tips. When youâ??re buying peanuts, make sure youâ??re buying a certified organic brand, usually Valencia or Jungle peanuts, which are grown on bushes higher up from the ground, avoiding mold. Additionally, adding flax seed oil or fish oil supplements to your diet to increase your level of omega-3 fats is important. Consuming peanut butter can be part of a healthy diet if youâ??re consuming it with the right type of foods. Peanuts are one of the highest forms of plant-based proteins available today, as well. So if you buy organic, jungle peanuts and youâ??re consuming a lot of omega-3 fats in your diet, then it can be healthy to consume peanut butter.
However, the biggest problem about peanut butter today is that 99% of peanut butters contain hydrogenated oils, are non-organic, and people are consuming too many omega-6 fats. For this reason, peanut butter is not good for you and can cause weight gain and inflammation.
