Features And Benefits
- Lowers Cholesterol And Reduces Heart Disease Risk – Recently published medical studies indicate that regularly eating high fibre foods, such as kidney beans, plays an important part in maintaining heart health. Kidney beans' contribution to heart health lies not just in their fibre but in the significant amounts of folate and magnesium these beans supply. Folate helps lower levels of homocysteine and Magnesium is Nature's own calcium channel blocker. When there is enough magnesium around, veins and arteries breathe a sigh of relief and relax, which lessens resistance and improves the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
- Controls Blood Sugar – In addition to its beneficial effects on the digestive system and the heart, soluble fibre found in red kidney beans helps stabilize blood sugar levels. If you have insulin resistance, hypoglycemia or diabetes, kidney beans can really help you balance blood sugar levels while providing steady, slow-burning energy.
- Aids In Weight Loss – Red kidney beans are a very good source of fibre and protein which help the body feel satiated after consumption thereby reducing the urge to overeat. Also, the manganese in red kidney beans plays an important function in energy production ensuring you have a constant supply of energy after the meal.
- Provides A Protein-packed Alternative To Animal Meat – Heart-healthy red kidney beans are a good source of protein, and when combined with a whole grain such as whole wheat pasta or brown rice provide protein comparable to that of meat or dairy foods without the high calories or saturated fat found in these foods.
