Rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, peanuts have been proven to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition to providing Vitamin E, niacin, folate and manganese, peanuts contain the anti-oxidant resveratrol most commonly found in wine. Studies also show that eating peanuts lowers the chances of developing age-related cognitive diseases like Alzheimer’s.
A major source of omega-3 fatty acids and protein, hemp hearts are so rich in health benefits that they are considered a superfood. Because they are composed of 33% protein, hemp hearts are the densest source of plant protein.
