These Ancient Heirloom Variety Wild Jungle Peanuts, which boast an earthy, rich flavor, contain a whopping 26% protein, more than any other nut! Wild Jungle Peanuts are also free of aflatoxins, toxic substances made by molds, which is the cause of many a person's allergy to regular peanuts.
Other health benefits include:
–Over 40% of the oils contained in this ancient peanut are oleic acid, an oil essential for heart health and beautiful skin
–A wide array of amino acids, including all 8 essential ones
–They contain 13% of the Daily Value of calcium, and 21% of the DV of iron.
These special nuts could possibly even help people to quit smoking. To quote David Wolfe from his article, "Weight Loss and Detoxification: Beating Syndrome X", on Sunfood.com, "cigarettes become addicting because, due to stress (psychological) and poor nutrition (lack of vitamins and amino acids) vitamin B3 becomes deficient. Vitamin B3 or niacin is very closely related to niacinamide, nicotinamide, and nicotine. Nicotine from tobacco has the ability to "substitute" for Vitamin B3 in our metabolism. When we get Vitamin B3 back into our diet, this helps alleviate the desire for tobacco. The highest natural source of Vitamin B3 is the Amazonian Jungle Peanut. With the simple addition of one food like the Jungle Peanut, relief can be felt from cigarette withdrawals.
The Wild Jungle Peanuts are planted by hand, deep in the Amazon jungle by the Achuar Indians, whom also hand harvest them and carry them by foot to a city where they can be shipped (as there are no roads on their land). The Achuar have been less affected by outside influences and have experienced less cultural changes, retaining more of what we might consider a "traditional" lifestyle. The cultivation and selling of these wild jungle peanuts and other organic certified products represents the Achuar Indian’s only income.
