A question that many ask is … are there any benefits to eating peanut butter before bed? According to a recent study, the answer could be yes.
According to a report on the MedicalNewsToday website, consuming a small amount of peanut butter as part of a healthy snack before bed could help improve the quality of sleep, as too little protein can affect a person’s sleep.
It could also help prevent overeating and weight gain the next day.
For maximum health benefits, consider choosing a natural peanut butter that only lists peanuts in the ingredients.
According to the report, peanuts contain more protein than any other nut, at 7 grams per ounce. They also contain fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and amino acids.
A study by Trusted Source from 2021 showed that improved sleep quality was associated with higher protein intake, especially when combined with regular exercise.
