Are beans good for our health?

Black beans pack a lot of nutrients. Just one cup of black beans has about 15 grams of protein and 15 grams of fiber, so they are healthy to protect the body against prostate cancer.

The health benefits of black beans are high because of its high concentration of anthocyanins.

Anthocyanins are flavonoid pigments that give color to many black fruits, berries and vegetables, and providing extraordinary health benefits.

Beans can be used to replace traditional meat or added to a salad. Most adult men should try to get about 38 grams of fiber and 56 grams of protein daily.

Another reason to eat beans is beans have antioxidants that protect cells against free radicals, harmful substances that can cause damage to the body’s cells. Cellular damage caused by free radicals can lead to a number of chronic and degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, many cancers, heart disease, immune system problems, arteriosclerosis, dementia, diabetes, thrombosis and eye disorders. Anthocyanins and other flavonoids in black beans can be very helpful because they also prevent the signs of premature aging.
