Some of the Many Health Benefits of Sunflower Butter
1. Fight Inflammation and Decrease Cholesterol
One of the best-known benefits of sunflower butter is its ability to lower cholesterol and fight inflammation.
The paste naturally contains no cholesterol and is full of healthy fats, which contribute to lower levels of LDL, or bad cholesterol.
2. Increased Protein
A single tablespoon of sunflower butter has about 3 grams of protein, which makes it an ideal pick-me-up for athletes. And since protein helps you feel fuller for long amounts of time, sunflower butter is effective at preventing mid-day cravings.
3. Manage Blood Sugar
Sunflower butter is packed with magnesium and fiber, which is an ideal match for people with blood sugar concerns. Magnesium helps increase insulin sensitivity while fiber helps regulate the absorption of blood sugar.
4. Good Substitute for Those with Nut Allergies
Nut butters are delicious, but millions of people have severe nut allergies that make eating nut butters impossible. Allergies to peanuts, a type of legume, are also common; meaning that many people can’t enjoy PB&Js without finding a substitute spread. Fortunately, sunflower butter is entirely nut and legume-free, making it suitable for people who can’t eat peanut butter or nut butters.
