The Truth About Peanuts

Peanuts are lectins and not completely digested in your gut. This makes your body work harder to produce more enzymes to digest them which can wear down the gut lining and lead to leaky gut creating an inflammatory response.

Peanuts also have Aspergillus Flavus on them which can make you sick.

My opinion, avoid peanuts all together if you have an autoimmune disease as they contain Goitrogens-which disrupt thyroid hormone production.

They’re also a high histamine food.

The positives - they're a good source of protein and contain niacin, folate and zinc!

If you’re going to eat peanuts - choose Valencia peanuts
