Health Benefits of Broad Beans:
Help With Parkinson’s Disease Symptoms
Fava beans are rich in levodopa (L-dopa), a compound that your body converts to the neurotransmitter dopamine. Parkinson’s disease causes the death of dopamine-producing brain cells, leading to tremors, issues with motor function and difficulty walking. These symptoms are usually treated with medications that contain L-dopa.
May Help Prevent Birth Defects
Fava beans are loaded with folate, a nutrient that promotes healthy fetal development. Folate is critical for creating cells and organs. An expecting mother needs additional folate from foods and supplements to reduce the risk of neural tube defects, or issues with the development of her infant’s brain and spinal cord.
Contain Immune-Boosting Nutrients
Regularly eating broad beans may boost your immune system. They’re rich in compounds that may enhance antioxidant activity. Antioxidants are critical to your body’s immune defence, as they fight free radicals that may lead to cell damage and disease. Broad beans contain compounds that have been shown to enhance the ability of the powerful antioxidant glutathione in human cells and delay cellular ageing.
Beneficial for Bone Health
Broad beans are rich in manganese and copper two nutrients that may prevent bone loss . Their exact role in bone health is unclear, but rat studies suggest that manganese and copper deficiencies may lead to decreased bone formation and increased calcium excretion. Human research also suggests that manganese and copper are vital to bone strength.
May Improve Symptoms of Anemia
Eating iron-rich Broad Beans may help with symptoms of anaemia. Iron is needed to produce haemoglobin, the protein that enables your red blood cells to carry oxygen through your body. An iron deficiency can lead to anaemia, characterized by fatigue, weakness, dizziness and shortness of breath. Broad beans contain a form of iron that is better absorbed with vitamin C from foods, such as citrus fruits or bell peppers
Improve High Blood Pressure
Broad Beans are high in nutrients that can improve heart health. In particular, they contain magnesium and potassium that may relax blood vessels and prevent high blood pressure. Eating a diet that contains broad beans and other foods rich in magnesium and potassium may lower blood pressure and improve heart health.
May Help Lower Cholesterol
Most of the fibre in Broad Beans is soluble and may help lower cholesterol levels. Soluble fibre may promote healthy bowel movements by absorbing water in your gut, forming a gel-like substance and softening your stool. It can also bind to and remove cholesterol from your body. Several studies have shown that soluble fibre may help lower blood cholesterol levels in both healthy adults and those with elevated levels.
