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.
Black beans, considered the healthiest ofbeans, have the highestantioxidantcount and “potent inhibitory activity” against human colon, liver, and breastcancercells. Not only are they high inantioxidants, but also they are high inergothioneine, an unusual amino acid that protects our DNA and acts as an intramitochondrial antioxidant.
Beans have been shown to benefit people withtype 2 diabetesdue to their ability to decrease insulin resistance. The high levels ofpotassiumin beans may lower the risk ofstroke.
