The ARISTOTLE study describes the potential benefits of peanut consumption in young, healthy people.

The study published in the journal Clinical Nutrition provides new insights into the beneficial effects of a nut-rich diet on human health. According to the study, which focuses on peanut consumption, daily intake of peanut products may have beneficial effects on cognitive performance and stress response in young, healthy individuals.

The study was carried out with a group of 63 healthy people aged between 19 and 33, who included a regular portion of peanut products in their daily intake. “Most nutritional intervention studies have been done in a population with obesity, metabolic syndrome or who are at risk of chronic metabolic disease. In this population that is at risk, it is easier to observe a beneficial effect changing the food pattern or introducing a healthy food in their habitual diet”, notes lecturer Rosa M. Lamuela.
