Also known as Monkey Nuts, peanuts are technically a legume, and contain higher levels of protein than most "real" nuts. Studies have shown that regular peanut consumption helps improve cholesterol levels and reduce risk of cardiovascular disease. Research from the University of Florida discovered that peanuts are rich in antioxidants, which protect cells from damage linked to heart disease and cancer. They are also good for keeping blood sugar levels even and so could be a source of protection against type-2 diabetes. They are a good source of vitamin E, which helps protect the skin, and they contain adequate amounts of vitamin B, fiber, potassium, and magnesium. Americans spend almost $800 million a year on peanut butter, consuming about 150 calories in every ounce.
