Why is it good to eat peanut butter on your period my mama always tell me to eat it bu I dont know why.
I crave things with lots of protein when I'm on my period, particularly red meat. It gives me the iron and proteins that my body loses.
Peanut butter works on a couple levels, it has moderate iron, high protein, and it is a complex carb so it breaks down in your system, hitting your blood stream like a time release capsule. I have diabetic friends who also rely on peanut butter just for that reason. It slowly releases the 'sugar' in the blood stream to keep a balanced blood sugar level after taking a shot.
It contains a lot of protein, (I.e. iron) which you lose when you are on your period. It is also a complex carbohydrate which gives you sustainable energy and it high in saturated fats.
My boyfriends sister is a model an in order to keep healthy she eats peanut butter every day of her life. It's really good for you and very healthy.
Protein...you lose a lot through blood loss on your period, and Peanut Butter is full of it.
It was a great trick to use back in the day when many people couldn't afford meat, but if you're eating a regular diet, then you most likely don't need it.
All I know is that peanut butter has a medium iron content, above average but not rich. Maybe it's to do with iron?
thats a good questiong I've never heard of that ..I'd like to know too
