One can not overemphasize the positive effect that groundnut has on your brain. Groundnut is a protein snack which plays an important nutritional role for the brain and other body parts.
It is important to know that groundnut or peanuts contain a significant vitamin known as vitamin B3 which is called niacin in other words.
This vitamin helps boost your memory, i.e. it has a memory-boosting capacity that makes the brain function better and assimilate information more easily.
Groundnut also contains what is known as tryptophan which improves serotonin production. Serotonin is one of the brain’s basic chemicals required to control your mood.
Groundnut also plays a role in other parts of the body, it contains phytosterol which helps protect the body from cardiovascular disease and lowers the risk of heart disease.
The high quantity of this phytosterol in groundnut also helps to protect the body from cancer by inhibiting tumour growth.
