Side Effects of Peanut Butter

‘Every coin has two faces,’ ‘excess of everything is bad,’ and you might be hearing many other things like these. And, then this, peanut butter is not healthy, whey protein is not healthy, and many more.

Now, the side effects of peanut butter! Well, everything said above is correct, but up to some extent. 

You never have to trust everybody around you. Instead, use your own common sense, creativity and research thoroughly before you take any action. 

The article I am writing over here is well researched, but I will still force you to believe what I have written. Please research well, before you do anything. 

Let us not get out of the topic and discuss the side effects of peanut butter. 

In my previous blog, I talked about the calories in a peanut butter sandwich. Well, that blog went awesome and people liked it a lot. 

But, before taking your snack to gain weight, don’t forget to buy the right peanut butter.

 Yes, there are side effects of peanut butter, but it depends on how you eat, how much you eat, and what are the ingredients present in it. 

So, lets us discuss!!!

Is peanut butter healthy for you?

Let us not just get to the conclusion first, but discuss the science behind it. 

Do you now that Peanut butter contains all the essential nutrients such as protein, fat, fibre, vitamins and minerals. 

Then, why do most don’t prefer eating this fantastic food? It is all because of the ingredients added in it. 

Side Effects of Peanut Butter 

  • Gaining Weight

Well, good news for skinny guys. But, what about those who are obese or want to lose fat, not muscle? Most of the peanut butter available in the market are not up to the mark and lack essential nutrients and are unhealthy.

Moreover, if you are taking it with white bread, you are going on the wrong path. Take your peanut butter with brown bread, banana, and nuts.

Note: Sugar is the biggest enemy for your health. Peanut butter that contains refined sugar is the worst for your health. 

  • It may damage your cells

Yes, you heard it right!

The main culprit is not the peanut butter, but the hydrogenated oil that makes it the worst. Most of the companies that claim to provide the healthiest peanut butter are lying to you. In reality, they are using hydrogenated oil and many other preservatives just to impress the customers.

Note: Buy the peanut butter that does not contain hydrogenated oil.  

  • You Can Get Bloated

Getting bloated is one of the main issues after eating peanut butter. Most of the peanut butter available in the market are free from omega-3s (reduces inflammation). 

Note: Peanut butter that contains at least omega-3s can be chosen in your diet

  • Most of Them are Impure 

No one can deny the fact that peanut butter is healthy for your body. However, it does not mean you going to eat every kind of peanut butter available in the market. 

Do you know that your biggest enemy is “sugar?” But, the reality is that the peanut butter in the market contains high amount of sugar, sodium, and saturated fats to the spread. 

Note: Make sure to study the nutrition facts closely before you buy peanut butter.
