Regular consumption of black beans helps to provide support for the digestive tract. They also provide a great source of protein and fiber, supporting heart health and blood sugar regulation.
Protein and fiber support strong digestive health by moving foods at a moderate pace through the digestive tract. This pace lessens the burden on any one area, enabling food to move in a way that best supports chemical balances in the body and the micro-organisms involved in digestion. One cup of black beans contains 4 grams of soluble fiber, the type of fiber most beneficial for lowering blood cholesterol levels.
