Health Benefits of Organic Beans
Beans or legumes have been around since the dawn of man. Early man found bean pods and starting eating them… noticing they could thrive on these wonderful packets of nutrition.
Some beans don’t contain all needed proteins, but when combined with brown rice, seeds, nuts, corn and other grains they become a full spectrum protein… but some beans do contain all the essential amino acids.
And beans have many health benefits that tend we tend to overlook.
Beans have lots of great soluble and non soluble fiber that help lower cholesterol and triglycerides thus preventing heart disease, strokes, and cancer. Beans lower LDL or bad cholesterol.
Because beans don’t contain fats that are found in other types of protein like animal products, beans can lower our blood pressure. And they don’t cause the inflammation associated with animal protein that produces high blood pressure. And studies show that people who eat beans on a regular basis have lower blood pressure. Beans have lots of antioxidants, and kidney beans have more antioxidants than blueberries. – It’s true! This means beans can boost up our immune system and help prevent diseases such as auto-immune disease, colds, flues, cancer and more.
Beans contain 9 to 12 grams of fiber per serving – that’s a lot of fiber. And fiber is needed for creating a good environment for colon health. Beans have lots of wonderful fiber that boost up our immune system by creating a place for probiotic bacteria to grow. Thus keeping good bacteria working to keep us healthy and preventing bad bacteria from taking over and creating disease. Good colon health = good health in general. And eating beans can reduce the risk of colon and rectal cancer.
Beans contain protease inhibitor enzymes which prevents cancer. Thus eating beans on a regular basis is very important for cancer prevention. Beans contain phytonutrients such as coumenstrol, cinnamic acid, and secoisolariciresinol which all help to prevent cancer. And eating beans at least 2 to 4 times a week can lower our risk of breast and prostate cancer by about 25%.
Studies with beans show the more beans we eat the easier it is to control our blood sugar. Beans stabilize our blood sugar because beans have a low glycemic index, that means they break down into sugars very slowly and making them wonderful food for weight loss and diabetics. And because beans lower blood pressure that means they prevent renal disease, because high blood pressure is one of the leading causes of kidney failure.
