According to the Mayo Clinic, beans are a great way to get your daily dose of iron, phosphorous, magnesium (which the body needs to keep the nerves and muscles functioning) and potassium. And as an added bonus, they're low in fat and high in other good things, like dietary fiber and protein, meaning they'll keep you fuller longer.
Navy beans are an excellent source of cholesterol-lowering fiber, as are most other beans. In addition to lowering cholesterol, navy beans' high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia.
When combined with whole grains such as brown rice, navy beans provide virtually fat-free high quality protein. But this is far from all navy beans have to offer. Navy beans are a very good source of folate and manganese and a good source of protein and vitamin B1 as well as the minerals phosphorus, copper, magnesium and iron.
