A handful of groundnuts can be beneficial for your heart. Resveratrol – a polyphenol compound with antioxidant properties – is present in abundance in peanuts. Benefits of this compound include regulating blood pressure, cholesterol, protecting brain cells from damage, reducing diabetes complications and easing joint pain.
