‘Beans consumption good for hypertension, diabetes’

Beans is an ideal meal for hypertensive patients because of its high potassium and low sodium content.

Beans is more nutritious than meat and just a substitute for it.

Beans acts as protection for the skin and mucus because it is a good source of two vitamins factors, niacin and pantothenic acid.

Beans is recommended in cases of eczema, itching skin, dry skin, and general dermatitis.

The fiber in beans lowers blood cholesterol level and also provide substantial amounts of insoluble fiber, which helps to attract water to stool and enhance transit time of waste through the colon. This may help to combat constipation, colon cancer, and other conditions that afflict the digestive tract.

Proteins are the most notable nutrient in beans. The protein percentage in beans, which varies according to the variety, is equal to or greater than animal-based foods.

Beans is low in sugar, which prevents insulin in the bloodstream from spiking and causing hunger.

When you substitute beans for meat in your diet, you get the added bonus of a decrease in saturated fat.

The properties of the carbohydrates found in beans, along with their fiber content, “make them ideal food for the management of abnormalities associated with insulin resistance, diabetes and hyper-lipidemia.”
