1 Tablespoon of Peanut Butter Daily…Your Blood Sugar, Cholesterol, Arteries & Heart Will Love You!
In this video, I’d like to explain to you the importance of what peanut butter can do for your health. Yes, the majority of our world, at one time or another, is going to be insulin resistant, causing a rise of glucose in the blood, which leads to an accumulation of many problems and too much processed and refined sugars.
After it’s stored as glycogen, whatever is left over is, is going to be turned into fat. And it’s the bad fat, the visceral fat, that’s the fat that surrounds the abdominal area, the liver, the stomach, and that becomes an inflammatory cycle that can lead to other metabolic problems throughout our bodies.
Healthy peanut butter is filled with vitamins, minerals such as magnesium, potassium, zinc, along with monounsaturated heart healthy fats. And what’s exciting about peanut butter is that it does not raise your insulin or glucose levels.
It has a glycemic index of 14 that is extremely low. What does that mean? The glycemic index means how fast or how slow sugars get absorbed into the cells of your body. A high glycemic index, like your breads and sodas and your cakes and cookies, is going to break down into glucose extremely fast as it surges up into the cells, giving you that speed, that nervousness.
And then you get that fall and you become extremely tired. And it’s so important that peanut butter has lots of fiber. And fiber is the magic when it comes to our health, because fiber is what helps balance our blood sugar levels.
It’s like a prebiotic that feeds the probiotic, a microbiome. And fiber will get rid of your constipation, and it will help prevent many different types of cancers throughout our body. There are so many beneficial effects of what it can do for you, as long as you’re getting enough fiber every day.
So we know that peanut butter will help reduce our sugar levels. It will reduce your hunger, decreasing the amount of food intake as well as those cravings that you may be having. It increases production of a hormone, glp, one, which lowers insulin resistance and stimulates insulin production. And it will also help reduce your a one c. And peanut butter is a great source of magnesium.
And magnesium is known to help play a role in reducing the risk of the development of diabetes. And magnesium plays a tremendous role in the production of insulin with the pancreas as it helps reduce metabolic syndrome, prevents inflammation and better insulin resistance.
And peanut butter is extremely healthy when it comes to our cardiovascular system. That’s our heart and our arteries. That’s what pumps blood and oxygen. To all the cells throughout our body. This helps lower our bad cholesterol as well as our bad triglycerides.
And too much cholesterol and triglycerides will lead to clogging of those arteries, which will inhibit or limit the amount of blood circulation that’s trying to get to the heart that we call a heart attack or even to the brain that we call a stroke.
And you want to make sure that the peanut butter you’re getting is good quality peanut butter. A lot of the peanut butter sitting on the shelf have so many different preservatives in there. So you need to read those ingredients.
Many of them have bad fats, have sugars or other things that are not going to be healthy for your body. And remember that if you’re eating peanut butter or even peanuts, use good judgment on how much you’re eating. A handful or two of peanuts.
A couple tablespoons of peanut butter is extremely healthy for your body. And I love eating peanuts or peanut butter between meals because that helps even balance your insulin and glucose levels even more. It would give you lots of satiety.
You’ll take away those cravings and it’ll actually help you lose more weight. And I love peanut butter on my celery. I love to put it on my frozen bananas. I love using it in my smoothies with my berries and banana and almond milk.
So please get a little bit of exercise, ride a bike, walk, play a little tennis, swim, whatever it is. Make sure you’re getting your sleep. Hydrate, sustain normal stress levels, meditate, whatever it takes, do what’s good for you. I promise you, peanut butter is an excellent food for diabetics, prediabetics to reverse insulin resistant to make you more insulin sensitive.
So sugar will be sustained normal throughout your body so you can have lots of energy, be happy and enjoy your life. Please share this video with your friends and family. Leave your comments below. And most important, make it a great day. I’m Dr. Alan Mandel.
