      Why should you choose nut butters?

      Nut butters are very nutritious and have a host of health benefits. However, it’s important that you exercise caution before you try them as some people can be allergic to nuts especially peanuts. Peanut butter, almond butter, pistachio butter, or cashew butter are some of the best nut butters from the nutrition point of view.

      Nut butters can be spread over bread or crackers but you can also innovate by adding a dollop to your salad or on healthy snacks like apple slices.

      Enjoy the good fat

      Most of the fat found in nuts is unsaturated and this is better for you compared to the saturated fat found in meat or transfats in many processed foods. It also acts on the hormone that regulates blood sugar and insulin and helps to bring it under control.

      Rich in nutrients

      Nut butters are super nutritious as they are filled with Vitamins E and B6, folic acid, niacin, magnesium, zinc, copper, and potassium. However, check the labels to identify the quantity of added salt, sugar, preservatives, and unhealthy fats.

      Filled with antioxidants

      Nut butters are loaded with minerals such as selenium, manganese, vitamins C and E besides flavonoids, phenols, polyphenols and other substances.  This can make your heart healthier and even prevent colon cancer.

      Control your cholesterol & diabetes

      Almonds, walnuts, and other tree nuts have a reputation for bringing down cholesterol levels. Nut butter is also great to use control weight gain and cut down the high levels of sugar (glucose) and fats (lipids) in your blood, which can result in Type 2 diabetes.

      Control your weight

      Even if you are in a diet, using a little nut butter can help. The high protein and fiber will make you feel  full and energized for long. This means that you will eat less and this also helps to bring down weight.
