What HAPPENS If You Eat Peanuts EVERYDAY For 30 Days? | Dr. Steven Gundry

Peanuts may be delicious, but they can, unfortunately, be toxic as well. This is because they’re often found with aflatoxin, a toxic fungus that is found most commonly in humid, subtropical, and tropical climates.
Aflatoxin can be very harmful to human health and can even lead to some long-term issues like suppression of your immune system, kidney disease, and liver cancer.Peanuts contain a natural plant substance called phytic acid, which can also be found in other legumes, nuts, seeds, and types of oils. Phytic acid, unfortunately, acts as an anti-nutrient in your body, meaning that it can inhibit your body’s absorption of nutrients like iron, zinc, calcium, manganese, and magnesium.A typical 1 ounce serving of dry roasted peanuts from Walmart contains about 150 milligrams of sodium, which is 7% of the daily recommended value. This may not seem like a lot at first, but it is easy to mindlessly snack on peanuts and exceed the serving size.
To limit your sodium intake, try buying ones that are labeled “low sodium” or “lightly salted,” or measure out your portions ahead of time!According to The Peanut Institute, peanuts contain high levels of unsaturated fat, fiber, vitamin E, folate, and potassium. As we know, peanuts also contain nutrients like zinc and magnesium, but phytic acid can limit those levels.
