Peanut butter seems to become regular part of menu of people who pay special attention to right nutrition. The nutrition, which is a basic element next to programmed physical activity. Without the appropriate energetic and building substrates, we do not have possibility to do intensive work (training) and to regenerate muscle damages right after (muscular restitution process). Due to inclusion of the particular macroelements of the Peanut Butter Sport Plus, it may constitute ideal source of carbohydrates in pre-workout meal, as an additive for wholegrain bread, pasta or cakes with oat-flakes and banana*. On the other hand, after intensive workout, it is necessary to pay special attention to supply of the wholesome aminoacids, which constitute building material for repairing damages on muscle protein level (microdamages) and provision of appropriate carbohydrates, thanks to whom the regeneration will be possible. In this case, a low-fat pot cheese with Peanut Butter Sport Plus would be the best fit. Next, in order to reconstruct the glycogen supplies used during the training, it is recommended to eat protein-carbohydrate meal, such as chicken covered with Peanut Butter Sport Plus with wild rice and salad made of goat’s cheese and rucola. Only the appropriately balanced diet with specified workout plan may constitute a base for achieving the desired build.

Firstly common sense. Secondly hard work. Thirdly balanced and customized diet corresponding with your needs. Diet, which consists of Peanut butter with shelled hemp seeds – Sport Plus :). We are interested in success. Yours, thereby ours.

Peanut Butter Sport Plus – few important facts, which will answer the question why to choose this, and not any other peanut butter available on the market in a simple way. By meeting high expectations of sportspeople, whose scientific inquisitiveness leads through the most advanced methods in searching for solely perfect solutions, for whom quality is determining the success, we introduce the most sophisticated product. By aiming to achieve the most optimal composition and even better proportions of the right proteins, fats and carbohydrates, we started a search for equally adequate knowledge. We investigated the core of Peanut Butter Sport Plus, the peanuts. We do not need to introduce them, every one of us remembers well their taste and the addiction, which is equally proportional to emptying a bowl with them. It is not about the peanuts covered with appropriate, or rather inappropriate, cover of salt, flavour enhancers or crispy coating. It is about those which quality translates into their very rich, as it turns out, composition. Not everyone knows about all their ingredients, and the benefits of consuming them are equally proportional to body’s saturation by their particular ingredients, when the product becomes an element of our daily diet.

I’ll start from very important, proven positive effect of peanuts on brain tissue, cerebral circulation and increase of cognitive abilities. Why from that point? Because the secret of advanced scientific research was no longer a secret, but a portion of important and well understood data, which is so important to achieve the before mentioned success, which we all search for. The most recent scientific data from University of South Australia, “hot off the press”, because it is dated June 2016, indicates that in group of subjects who regularly have peanuts in their diet – in statistically significant way, meaning having important influence, neuronal outflow (neurons – cells of brain tissue), shortens the time of passing the information between the neurons (just like finding suddenly a byway, while being in traffic jam and during rush hour, which is a completely empty road to your destination), the pressure in brain arteries increases, which causes provision of appropriate quantity of oxygen and nutrients for the brain, and that – simplifying our road to the goal – translates to increase of durability and lets say it colloquially “volume” of short memory, meaning “RAM”, for the ones who is more computerized – increase of our personal RAM occurs. Everything happens as a matter of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), which contents in peanuts is even around 40% [1,2].

These acids, except for the healing influence on thinking and remembering, have their significant place in life of each physically active person. For sure you have experienced mistakenly so called “soreness”, which is accurately named delayed onset muscle soreness. What to do in order to decrease these effects? As it turned out in the research conducted in long runners, who were subjected to 30 min. eccentric exercise treadmill (angle of inclination – 16°, meaning running downhill), supplemented with polyunsaturated fatty acids, not only the experienced discomfort was smaller, but also the damage of structural proteins were significantly smaller on muscle cell level. The markers for such damages are among others following enzymes: creatinine kinase (CK) and D-lactate dehydrogenase. The laboratory test for their blood concentration show lower values after supplementing with PUFA compared to values recorded before supplementation (Figure 1) and no significant differences (Figure 2) in people with placebo (the same looking capsules with rapeseed oil). These outcomes can indicate only protective effect of PUFA on myocytes (muscle cells) during intense physical exercise.



Figure 1. Blood creatinine kinase concentration (CK) before and after PUFA supplementation, before eccentric exercise (sp), after eccentric exercise (max) and 1 hour after restitution (1h) [own research].



Figure 2. Concentration of creatinine kinase (CK) in blood before and after placebo supplementation, before eccentric exercise (sp), after eccentric exercise (max) and after 1 h of restitution [own research].


As an injury prophylaxis and an improvement of regeneration processes, various rejuvenating and nutrition methods can be applied. However, taking into consideration opinions of many scientists which verify the fact that PUFAs, that are in Peanut Butter Sport Plus, have invaluable influence on stopping inflammatory processes in muscles that are one of factors of delayed muscle soreness, it is worth to include them in diet [3].

Speaking of muscles, the same nuts contain appx. 26% of protein with significant amount of arginine. The arginine stimulates increase of muscle mass and significantly improves muscles resistance and efficiency, also through complicated biochemical cell reactions (for the ones interested in – associated with ammonia and serotonin) [4].

One more step closer to the success.

To underpin and add scientific sublimity in the topic, one more example of research on rats. In the animals supplemented with L-arginine, the level of CK enzyme in blood was lower, and exertional regeneration was much more intense [5]. Hurray!

And it’s not all yet…

Peanut Butter Sport Plus contains also variety of vitamins – among others E, B1, B2, B6), which precise description and elaboration we’ll skip – so extensive text could be indigestible – in lieu of focusing on one of them, which seems to be so important from active person point of view- vitamin B3, meaning PP (also called niacin). Why it? Because it co-participates  in synthesis and decomposition of carbohydrates (energy during the training), fatty acids (energy during the training and effect of reduction of gathered  fat reserves in subcutaneous tissue) and amino acids. It takes part in creation of red blood cells (they transport oxygen), limits toxic effect of chemical compounds and drugs (who of us does not takes them nowadays), regulates level of cholesterol in blood and extends blood vessels, positively influences the nerve system and physical condition, improves blood flow and the appearance of the skin, as well as positively influences hair and nail condition [6,7]. Project beach 2017?

So let’s think about the elements as well: potassium, phosphor, magnesium – as an example. The first one is important for muscle contractility, not only for the skeletal type ones. The phosphorus group also takes a part of cells energy processes (e.g. ATP- main medium and source of energy), cells communication (e.g. cAMP – signalization in the ‘center of the center’ of a cell) and keeping genetic information as well as protein synthesis (DNA and RNA). From our muscles point of view, magnesium improves muscoskeletal coordination, meaning it moves us from regular train to express one J. In addition to that, in our fast running world it is essential for right functioning of the nervous system, because of it’s anti-stress qualities, there exist also scientific premises which indicate that deficiency of magnesium in the diet may lead to depression [8].

I am writing this text in November. November seems to be made of Mondays from all over the year. It is the most depressing month. However we know a secret weapon. Yes. The Peanut Butter Sport Plus.

The Peanut Butter Sport Plus contains also  small, plane, oval and black sesame seeds of a bit sweet, peanut tasting flavour. Why the sesame became part of our product? It has more intense flavour and it is equally rich with – although in different proportions –  in nutritients and microelements, just like it’s white form [9]. Taste of sesame usually reminds us sesame crackers and halva, but the matter of what we should associate it with  regards to health. However that’s a more complex topic – not only culinry one. The black type of sesame contains 23% of the protein with significant amount of cystein. Cystein is considered as a aminoacid conditionally essential, meaning which can be produced by human body, but in effect of some physiological  conditions such as stress or physical effort the requisition for them  increases and it is necessary provide body with them from external source, such as Peanut Butter Sport Plus. Cystein is a building component of the keratin which is main protein of the skin, hair and nails. It also takes part in  production of collagen – protein which is responsible not only for the skin’s firmness (anti-wrinkle function!), but also for resistance of the tendons, which bond muscles with bones. Colagen has very high resistance for stretching, which is why our tendons are highly durable, however the quality is dependent on provision of all components – including the cysteine [10].

The benefits seem not to end. The black sesame is also rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids mentioned in the essay, which content in dry matter reaches even 44%. In addition, it is also to give credit to black sesame for contents of many vitamins and minerals. It seems to be necessary to highlight manganese, which is essential for creation of thyroxin (thyroid hormone), which stimulates  oxidation processes in tissues, enhances lysis of fats to fatty acids and glycerol (hurray, intensification of reduction of the fat tissue), enhances absorption of glucose from digestive tract as well as it’s use e.g. by muscles during intensive workout [11]. Manganese is responsible for normal work of the nervous system, indirectly influences nerve-muscle coordination, as well as has positive influence on libido (increases it J). It improves also sexual efficiency – and attention, in effect of the increased libido – it improves fertility [12]. The next asset of manganese is meaningful, positive influence on bones mineralisation. It can be successfully named osteopenia and osteoporosis conqueror [13].

In conjunction with zinc, which enhances the profile of osteocytes shells along with calcium, of which its appx. 20% more compared to white sesame [9], it creates a strong shield  defending the health of our bones. It is necessary to remind that our physical efficiency is also a matter of bones, that set in motion our muscles.

The black sesame, present in our excellent Peanut Butter Sport Plus, is also a source of copper that plays important role in creation of the above mentioned connective tissue and prostaglandins’ synthesis, which affect among others the activity of smooth muscles that build organs walls such as digestive tract or uterus. Prostaglandins are also responsible for  – by regulating tension of smooth muscles’ of arterial resistance vessels – for right blood pressure.

And that’s still not all…

In the same sesame it is possible to find two very specific substances – sesame and sesamol, which are antiradical and antibacterial agents, of which we already know something [14].

To the whole package of benefits, let’s add also the contents of magnesium, vitamins from B group, phytosterols, folic acid and tryptophan. By ending the story about sesame, lets focus on the last component especially.

Tryptophan is a very important amino acid, which regulates the work of whole organism by being engaged in processes of the transformations which are important for maintenance of homeostasis, which is internal balance of the organism.  It plays a significant role in work of nervous system. It is associated directly with the physical condition and disorders linked to deficiency of the amino acid [15]. In addition, it takes part in production of the melatonin, which plays role in  regulation of the sleep-wake cycle, as it it’s known that well rested person is a happy person!

It participates in regulation of the metabolism (by decreasing appetite!!!), regulation of oxytocin release as well as growth hormone. The last one is very, very important from building our own muscle mass point of view of course J.

Tryptophan enhances also the immune system, without which we cannot build our dreamy body [16].

The last but not least important ingredient – lecithin. It is indispensable for each cell of the body, especially for the cells of the nervous system [17].

As the research suggests, it improves concentration, not only during the exercises, but also except from them, e.g. at work or during filling out lottery coupons J. It improves memory, slows down the aging processes, and by streamlining the microcirculation indirectly has influence on increase of aerobic capacity (it is the capacity important for prolonged effort [18].

In addition, the lecithin is a natural source of choline with high biologic activity, which has an influence on improvement of metabolism  of cholesterol in body. It improves it’s solubility and removal from tissues. The research shows that the lecithin lowers the level of cholesterol and triglycerides, significantly increasing the good cholesterol (HDL)[19]. Speaking more understandably, how the lecithin operates positively influences the decrease of risk of developing atherosclerosis and hart- vessel diseases associated with it [20]. These diseases are our genetical load and they are one of the civilisation diseases.

Choline insufficiency in food may lead to cumulation of lipids in liver. In addition, lecithin, gentlemen – sharpen your hearing, has effective positive influence on decrease of men sexual disorders, by lowering prostate gland overgrowth. It has also positive effect on lifespan of the semen [21]. Weeeeeeell, men are likely convinced now …

Quite a long discussion. So now, long story short.

In order to:

    • remain healthy, be enduring, strong on the workout
    • decrease the side effects associated with strain muscle injury
    • to build muscles and to reduce the gathered fat tissue
    • prevent yourself from stress and depression
    • improve intellectual and sexual efficiency
    • fight the free radicals and prevent from civilization diseases

You reach for the only right solution – Peanut Butter Sport Plus, because it’s presence in your diet brings benefits only 🙂

Perhaps there is only one minus: Workout + butter = run to shop for bigger T-shirts…biegacz
