Peanut butter has always been one of those distinctly American things that has never caught on as it could have done in the UK.
And that’s a real shame because peanut butter offers a ton of health benefits that you might not know about. That’s why we’re so keen to offer the Rxbar Peanut Butter Protein Bar in the Jubbas catalogue.
Of course, the bar comes loaded with the protein that we all know that peanut butter provides. It also offers up all of the nutrition that you’d get from a couple of dates, as well as being vegan-friendly.
But we want to hone in on the other benefits that peanut butter provides…
Benefit #1 – It’s Great for Weight Loss
While we’re not going to claim that peanut butter is a low-calorie option, we do know that it’s very filling.
Anybody who’s experienced cravings before will know just how important that it.
Peanut butter offers up a slow release of energy that leaves you feeling full for longer. That means you’re not going to find yourself snacking as much during the course of the day. Indirectly, that means that eating appropriate amounts of peanut butter will help you to lose weight. Of course, you have to incorporate it as part of a healthy diet.
Benefit #2 – It Contains Healthy Fats
There’s this misconception that still exists in the dieting world that all types of fats are bad for your body.
It’s the trans and saturated fats often found in processed foods that lead to weight gain and other health issues. Unsaturated fats, such as those found in peanut butter, are the types that your body actually needs to keep cells healthy and operate as it’s supposed to.
Peanut butter contains plenty of monounsaturated fats, which means it helps to keep your body in tip-top condition.
Benefit #3 – Plenty of Potassium
In addition to the high protein content, peanut butter also comes loaded with potassium.
This is another of the essential nutrients that your body needs to survive. And research shows that having appropriate potassium levels can help you to stave off a number of health conditions, including heart disease and high blood pressure.
So if you’re a bit bored of bananas, peanut butter may be the alternative potassium source that you’ve been looking for all of these years.
Benefit #4 – Filled with Fibre
And to add to the potassium and protein, peanut butter also comes loaded with fibre.
We all know that fibre is very important to the maintenance of a healthy digestive system. It will certainly help if you have any issues with your gut.
However, fibre also helps your body to regulate its blood sugar levels and can help to improve your cholesterol levels. Plus, it’s the key component in peanut butter’s ability to help you to feel fuller for longer.
The Final Word
As you can see, you’re getting a lot more than protein from the Rxbar Peanut Butter Protein Bar. Peanut butter offers a bunch of health benefits for you to take advantage of.
Why not try one today? We’re sure that the bars will become a regular part of your diet.
