How black beans may help ward off cancer?
Black beans have a perfect blend of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients and if you all know cancer is usually caused by chronic excessive oxidative stress and chronic excessive inflammation therefore these make a good connection altogether. Black beans help fight inflammation in the body and due to the abundance in antioxidant content they provide the body additional ability to prevent cellular damage which is a common pathway for cancer and so many other health threats.
Black beans are also rich in Selenium which is a mineral that is not present in most fruits and vegetables but can be found in black beans. It plays a massive role in liver enzyme function, and helps depollute some cancer-causing compounds in the body. In addition, selenium also thwarts inflammation and also decreases rates of tumor growth enormously. There is another component found in black beans known as Saponins which prevents cancer cells from multiplying and spreading throughout the body.
As we all know black beans are rich in not just proteins they are rich in fiber too. Fiber intakes from fruits and vegetables like black beans are associated with a lowered risk of colorectal cancer. Another essential component Folate richly found in black beans plays a role in DNA synthesis and repair, consequently inhibiting the development of cancer cells from mutations in the DNA.1
