Peanuts are high in magnesium. Magnesium deficiency is linked to eye sight problems, bone loss, heart disease, colon cancer, and even MS.
Peanuts also contain phosphorus, zinc and vitamin E.
Peanuts also contain the very popular resveratol â€“ a compound also found in red wine that blocks a key protein that cancer cells need to survive â€“ actually starving them to death.
Nuts also contain L-Arginine which helps reduce blood clotting that causes clogged arteries, helps your body repair tissue, and supports your immune system.
And they’re fun to eat.
