Properties of Groundnut Oil: 

Groundnut oil may have the following properties:

  • It may act as antioxidant
  • It might have anti-inflammatory activity
  • It may have anticancer activity
  • It might have antidiabetic activity
  • It might protect the heart
  • It might be anti-microbial

From my experience, if you consume too many omega-6 fatty acids in your diet, they may be detrimental. Omega-6 fatty acids are found in peanut oil. Omega-6 fats have been linked in studies to a higher risk of heart disease. But using moderate amounts of peanut oil is often harmless.

Potential Uses of Groundnut Oil for Overall Health: 

Groundnut oil contains several nutrients that may have many benefits for the human body. Some of the potentials are as follows:

1. Potential uses of groundnut oil for heart

Twenty years of research indicated that people who frequently eat groundnut may have a lower risk of heart-related conditions. A collective data of 10 years has shown that people who consume peanuts, four to five times a week have a 30-50% reduction in heart disorders. The studies also indicated that people consuming groundnut and its oil reduced low-density lipoprotein and total cholesterol. Therefore, groundnut oil might benefit the heart. However, more studies are needed.3 If you have heart problems kindly, consult your doctor and do not self-medicate.

2. Potential uses of groundnut oil for cancer

Groundnut and its oil contain several phytochemicals such as campesterol, β-sitosterol, sigmasterol, and resveratrol, which may have a protective role against colon, breast, and prostate cancer. A collective study of 10 years has shown that consumption of groundnut may lower the risk of colorectal cancer in women. It contains β-sitosterol which may fight against breast, prostate, and colon cancer by inhibiting the growth of cancer cells.3 Cancer is a serious condition, and it should be diagnosed and treated by a doctor. Do not self-medicate.

3. Potential uses of groundnut oil for Brain

Groundnut oil contains vitamin E and B3 which may protect against Alzheimer’s disease. The bioactive compound resveratrol in groundnut also fights against Alzheimer’s disease and nerve-related problems. However, more studies are required to claim these benefits of groundnut oil. If you have any brain-related problems kindly, consult the doctor and get proper medication.3

4. Potential uses of groundnut oil for diabetes

Groundnut maybe acts against diabetes. An animal study showed that oleic acid present in groundnut may enhance the production of insulin and reduce glucose levels. A collective study conducted by researchers of the Harvard School of Public Health consisting of 83,000 women, showed that women who consumed peanut butter or nuts had a lower risk for type 2 diabetes.


I suggest regulated consumption of groundnut oil as it is believed to strengthen the immune system. Vitamin E, an antioxidant that fights free radicals, is abundant in it.
