AYURVEDA & MEDICINAL USES

Long bean pods contain large quantities of soluble and insoluble fibres which help protect the mucousa colon by decreasing its exposure time to toxic substances as well as by binding to cancer-causing chemicals in the colon. They also reduce LDL-cholesterol levels by decreasing re-absorption of cholesterol binding bile acids in the colon. They are a rich source of folates (one of the best). Folate along with vitamin B-12 is one of the essential components of DNA synthesis and cell division.

NOTABLE FACTS
