5 Foods Men Need Most (4) - Peanut Butter

February 1st 2007 00:52

Peanut Butter

If you want a healthy heart, spread your morning toast with peanut butter. Heart disease is the leading killer of men and women, but men fall victim at an earlier age. Researchers from Pennsylvania State University compared the cholesterol-lowering effect of the step II Diet of the America Heart Association (AHA) with a higher-fat diet based on peanuts.

The AHA plan included more carbohydrates. The peanut regimen was 36 per cent fat. After 24 days both diets lowered “bad” LDL cholesterol. But the peanut plan also caused a drop in blood fats called triglycerides and did not decrease HDL, the “good” cholesterol. The AHA diet raised levels of triglycerides and lowered levels of HDL.

“Peanut butter is a little higher in fat,” says Penny Kris-Etherton, the lead author of the study. “But it’s the type that’s good for you – monounsaturated fat.” Researchers have predicted that the peanut diet could reduce heart-disease risk even more than the AHA diet could. Just don’t go nutty plastering on the tasty spread, since it is high in kilojoules.

A word of caution
Although peanut butter is good for men, Arthritis patients who are blood type B and O are to avoid this food as it is harmful to them.

The good food
However, peanut butter is good for Arthritis patients who are blood type A and AB

Hmnn, now that looks good, good tip for women, too.

I forgot to tell you how great the oysters looked, yummy, have long been known as an aphrodisiac, if your hormones are right and you actually have a relationship that works, no aphrodisiac is necessary.

Nothing wrong with my hormones.

Hi katyzzz,

Great to see you popping by again. ^_^

Unfortunately, this book I particularly read for my mom's condition "Arthritis, fight it with blood type diet", stated people with blood type O and suffers any type of arthritis and allergy are strongly adviced to avoid penut butter, because it is harmful when one suffers this

It's a pretty good book and I'd probably write about it later.

Another food of thought...

Have a pleasent coming weekend!
