Peanut Oil

  • Peanut oil, also referred to as groundnut oil, is a vegetable-derived oil made from the edible seeds of the peanut plant.
  • In the Cold-pressed peanut oil method, peanuts are crushed to force out the oil. This low-heat process retains much of the natural peanut flavor and more nutrients than refining does.

Peanuts oil contain many health benefits:

  • The fatty acid breakdown of peanut oil is saturated fat (palmitic acid), omega-9 )monounsaturated), omega-6 fatty acid (polyunsaturated ), and polyunsaturated fat (PUFA). Also peanut oils contain vitamin E.
  • Peanut oil is commonly used in cooking; however pharmaceutical companies use peanut oil in various products they prepare. Peanut oil is also used in skin care products and baby care products. The vitamin E and other fats in the oil benefit your hair in more ways than one. The oil may help to reduce protein loss from the hair and also help moisturizes your split ends and regenerates damaged hair.
  • Peanut oil is cholesterol free, which is one of the major factors contributing to complicated heart conditions such as atherosclerosis. Since cooking oil is used in many different ways, eliminating this dangerous cholesterol from your body can help prevent a variety of health complications.
  • These compounds have the ability to inhibit carcinogen production and cancer-cell growth 
  • The good source of the antioxidant vitamin E, which is an essential vitamin for human beings, may help reduce heart disease risk factors.
  • Applying peanut oil topically can offer anti-aging benefits. And this is where we talk about vitamin E once again. The antioxidant fights free radicals, which otherwise might accelerate aging signs like wrinkles and fine lines.
  • It may also help improve insulin sensitivity and blood sugar in those with diabetes. Also It is particularly important for the maintenance and health of the skin and protect from the effect of free radicals that cause wrinkles, blemishes and other signs of premature aging.
  • Studies have shown that monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats may improve blood sugar control in people with diabetes. Consuming any fat with carbohydrates helps slow the absorption of sugars in the digestive tract and leads to a slower rise in blood sugar. However, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, in particular, may play a bigger role in blood sugar control. Researchers found that replacing just 5% of saturated fat intake with polyunsaturated fats led to a significant reduction in blood sugar levelsand HbA1c, a marker of long-term blood sugar control. Additionally, replacing saturated fat with polyunsaturated fat significantly improved insulin secretion in these subjects. Insulin helps cells absorb glucose and keeps your blood sugar from getting too high.


However, it is important to note that many studies have done, and there is limited research available on the effects of peanut oil in humans and suggested to take your doctor advise before any especial treatment.
