According to an investigation-based study, people who consume peanuts every day are less prone to suffer froman ischemic stroke or heart disease than those who do not eat. Peanuts consist of a variety of nutrients including vitamins, dietary fibers, minerals, monounsaturated fatty acids, and polyunsaturated fatty acids that are proven to be very healthy for the heart. These nutrients help to combat the occurrence of health conditions such as high blood pressure, bad cholesterol, and severe inflammation.

A research was conducted by the Japan Public Health Centre, in which over 74,000 Asian men and women falling between the age of 45 and 74 were examined. The volunteers selected for this research filled out a detailed lifestyle assessment, which include questions regarding peanut consumption. The incidences of strokes and ischemic heart disease throughout the research period were calculated by acquiring information from 78 hospitals and medical institutions linked with the study.

Additional health concerns such as smoking, dieting habits, alcohol consumption, and inactivity level were all considered by the investigators, as stated by the volunteers. Researchers found cases of 2,223 ischemic strokes, 1,376 hemorrhage strokes, and 849 cases of coronary heart disease, after analyzing the gathered data during the specific period.

The level of peanut consumption was bifurcated into 4 standards, where no peanuts per day were the lowest one and 4.3 unshelled peanuts per day being the highest one. According to the research, consuming 4-5 unshelled peanuts per day was linked to a 20% lesser risk of getting an ischemic stroke, a 16% lesser risk of overall stroke, and a 13% reduced risk of heart disease when compared to a peanut-free diet. There was no evidence of the link between consuming peanuts and a reduced risk of major bleeding or heart disease.
