Benefits Of Black Beans 

Did you know….that one-half cup of raw protein rich and nutrient dense black beans contain about 300 calories, providing  about 19 grams of protein, 14 grams of fiber, 58 grams carbs and 0 grams of cholesterol.

Black Beans are an excellent source of protein, iron, thiamin, folate, magnesium, selenium, potassium, zinc and quercetin (which is an antioxidant).

Some possible health perks from eating black beans are lowered blood pressure, lowered cholesterol (due to the fiber), and lower blood glucose levels for diabetics (due to the protein and fiber).  Black Beans are also important for overall digestive health support – for the colon in particular (due to the fiber), and the nutrients in black beans support heart health due to the variety of phytonutrients (antioxidant and anti-inflammatory components).  These same antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients contained in black beans also work towards preventing certain types of cancer.
