Benefits of Black Beans


The FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) allowed products such as soy milk and tofu to display the phrase "average 25 grams of soy protein a day can effectively prevent cardiovascular disease."

Dr. Steffenholt, a U.S. medical professor, also called soy a "healthy food for the next millennium." This is because it is not only a stable source of vitamins and minerals, but also a small natural source of isoflavone, a physiological active substance.

▶ Anti-cancer effect 'number one'

Beans are rich in vegetable proteins and unsaturated fatty acids. In particular, black bean shells, called weak beans, contain more than 500u per gram of special anti-cancer substance called glycitane, which is not found in yellow bean shells. Black beans are known for their anti-cancer effects as well as antioxidant and kidney function and strengthening vision. It is especially excellent in preventing breast cancer, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, heart disease, and osteoporosis. It contains vegetable estrogen similar to the female hormone estrogen, which reduces the risk of breast cancer. It is also rich in phytochemical. Among the phytochemicals, a pigment called isoflavone controls the secretion of female or male hormones, and its structure and function are similar to that of female hormones to prevent breast and ovarian cancer, which can occur due to overproduction of estrogen.

In men, it helps prevent prostate cancer, which is caused by excessive secretion of androgen, a male hormone. Black beans and black sesame seeds are often ground with walnuts, which is good for prostate hypertrophy.

It is also effective in preventing lung, rectal and colon cancer. A survey of 200 women in Hong Kong found that people who consumed tofu and other soy foods daily halved the risk of lung cancer compared to those who consumed less than three times a month.


▶Black beans that control diabetes and high blood pressure

In the early 1900s, before insulin was discovered, beans were already known to be effective for diabetes. Soybean soluble fiber serves to slow down the absorption rate of glucose in the gastrointestinal tract. Black beans are rich in vitamin E, which expands blood vessels to lower blood pressure, potassium, and calcium, which softens blood vessel muscles. There are also vitamin B12, folic acid, beta-carotene, and four times as much organic iron as meat, which are good for preventing anemia. This is why doctors recommend black beans to patients with high blood pressure.

Folk remedies say that it is effective for high blood pressure, neuralgia, and gout if raw beans or roasted beans are dipped in natural vinegar to make and consistently eat them. In addition, pine leaf powder and bean powder should be mixed in the ratio of one to one and mixed in water.


▶ Reclaim youth with black beans.

If you don't take good care of swelling or treat constipation, your skin can turn pale and rough, and your swelling can still be fat. Most of these phenomena are caused by a decline in new function, and black beans are effective in improving the disease caused by this decline. It is excellent for urination by improving kidney function. It is also good for white hair and hair loss. Arnigin, an essential nutrient for hair growth among amino acids high in black beans, is a metabolite of nitric oxide that promotes hair growth. Cysteine, an essential ingredient for hair growth, prevents side effects of sexual functions caused by taking anti-androgen drugs.

The results of the test that soybean oil compounds may be effective in suppressing circular hair loss have been published in a specialized journal. Dr. KJ McElwee and researchers at Philip University in Germany observed the effect by administering phytoestrogen genistin derived from soy oil and soy to the protoephalopathy mice, believing that environmental factors such as diet will affect it. According to the study, the incidence of circular hair loss in mice with diet containing 1%, 5%, and 20% soy oil was 86%, 39%, and 18%, respectively. In other words, the higher the soy oil content, the lower the incidence of circular hair loss. In addition, it is known to be effective in improving memory during growth and preventing memory loss in old age.
