Peanuts & Inflammation

Did you know that peanuts are one of the foods with the highest inflammatory properties?

Peanuts are a staple to the American culture. From being on the table as a Holiday snack to being a staple in many nutrition plans. Many people love peanuts because it contains a great source of omega-3 and protein which makes it a great snack on the go.

So what’s bad about it? 🤔

Just like many foods that are part of the American culture and maybe across the world, peanuts are one of the foods that contain the highest levels of inflammation. Peanuts contain a protein molecule called lectin which has been proven to wreck havok on your digestive system and your immune system. Have you ever wondered why some people are highly allergic to peanuts?

The aim of this blog is to draw awareness to those who may feel bloated, experience digestive issues, skin rash, or even headaches after consuming peanuts.
