Peanut Oil Benefits and Uses

Energise your body and prevent cancer with peanut oil

Peanut oil revs up your metabolism while deeply satisfying your taste buds. Did you know that peanut oil will make the crispiest fried food while it protects your heart, lowers bad cholesterol, and prevents cancer in every bite?1

Kaizer peanut oil stands apart with bolder flavour

Supermarket peanut oils damage your health because they are bleached and deodorised. Such chemical processing not only destroys what is nutritious about peanut oil, the chemicals remain in the oil and slowly eat away at your family’s health.

Kaizer peanut oil is produced by cold-pressing the red skin along with the rest of the nut. This gives Kaizer Red Peanut Oil a distinctly robust flavour and more nutrients. The striking dark colour of Kaizer peanut oil stands apart from every other peanut oil available in the supermarket.

Peanut oil benefits for blood pressure and the heart

Cooking with peanut oil is known to lower blood pressure.2 Here is how it works: as we age, arteries can get stiff and inflexible, which forces the heart to pump harder.3 Consequently, when blood pressure rises, heart muscles get strained and eventually damaged. Vitamin E in peanut oil helps to widen blood vessels and make them more flexible so your heart works more efficiently.4

Lower bad cholesterol with good fats in peanut oil

Would you have guessed that the rich and delicious peanut oil also lowers your bad cholesterol (LDL)? It does so without lowering your good cholesterol (HDL).5 So go ahead and enjoy peanut oil. In moderation, it is very good for you.

Phytosterols in peanut oil help to prevent and fight cancer

The high phytosterol content of peanut oil can inhibit the growth of certain types of cancers,6 such as:

  • Breast and ovarian
  • Prostate
  • Lung
  • Liver
  • Stomach

The anti-cancer activity of phytosterols7 (a family of healthful compounds found in plants) include:

  • Inhibiting carcinogen production
  • Reducing cancer cell growth and spread
  • Killing cancer cells8,9

Protect your family by including cancer tackling phytosterols in your diet.
