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 and noticed they thrived 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 like soy beans do contain all the essential amino acids.
And beans have many health benefits that tend to be overlook.
Lower Cholesterol – 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.
Lower Blood Pressure – Because beans don’t contain fats which 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.
High in Antioxidants – Beans have lots of antioxidants, and black 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.
Lots of Great Fiber – Beans contain 9 to 12 grams of fiber per serving, and fiber is needed for creating a good environment for colon health.
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 — and eating beans can reduce the risk of colon and rectal cancer.
Cancer – Beans contain protease inhibitor enzymes that prevent 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 almost 25%.
Heart Disease – A study at Tulane University shows that eating 4 servings of beans a week lowered the incidents of heart disease by more than 20%. Plus beans have lots of potassium and magnesium that help relax blood vessels and thus lower blood pressure and help with water regulation. And soybeans contain Nattokinase which actually can open up clogged arteries just as well as some of the enzymes that doctors use for heart attacks. And beans lower homocysteine levels thus lowering inflammation thus preventing heart attacks.
And beans contain phytonutrients (These nutrients are also found in chocolate, berries, and wine) and these nutrients prevent platelets from sticking together thus preventing heart attacks.
Stabilize Blood Sugar – Studies with beans show the more beans a person eats the easier it is to control their blood sugar. Beans stabilize blood sugar because beans have a low glycemic index, that means they break down into sugar very slowly… and making them wonderful food for weight loss and diabetics. And because beans lower blood pressure they also prevent renal disease, because high blood pressure is the leading cause of kidney failure.
Sustained Energy – Beans have good carbs that give us lots of energy over long periods of time.
Weight Loss – Beans are a low glycemic index food with lots of fiber that fills us up so we don’t get hungry. And meat breaks down quickly in the GI tract while beans take a long time to break down thus we don’t get hungry and we lose weight.
Hemorrhoids – The more fiber we have in our diet the less straining we have do to in order to defecate and that means less problems with rectal hemorrhoids.
Remember to Eat Organic – Organic is the best way to go because regular fruits and veggies contain up to 6 cancer causing chemicals, 12 hormone disrupting chemicals, and 10 other disease causing chemicals—Not Good. Eat Organic and Stay Healthy.
Along with a great green salad this is a full spectrum meal.
