Eating legumes every day is good for cardiovascular health. Researchers in the United States and Canada have found that eating more beans such as chickpeas, lentils and peas can help reduce blood cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.
The researchers said that those who ate beans regularly every day, the blood’s bad cholesterol content was reduced by 5%, reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke by 5% to 6%.
Beans are often considered to be healthy ingredients, but it is the first time that cardiovascular health has been found. Beans can also help statins, reduce cholesterol damage to blood vessels, and help maintain good health.
Researchers say that legumes are rich in fiber and can reduce the effects of cholesterol on the body, although 5% seems to be less effective, but long-term consumption will have a significant effect.
