A part from being a great source of protein, black beans are rich in antioxidants, fiber, and carbohydrates. This makes them both nutritionally and medically powerful.

Helps in Blood Sugar Regulation

High blood sugar is associated with damage to the various body organs and tissues such as the nerves, eyes and kidney. For people with diabetes, adding black beans to your diet can improve blood sugar level since black beans have a lower glycemic index.

Black beans are rich in antioxidants that damage harmful free radicals that cause cancer. Specifically, they reduce cancers of stomach, kidney and colon.

The antioxidants and Vitamin C in black beans protect the eyes against age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

Eating black beans decreases the overall amount of cholesterol and levels of “bad” cholesterol in your blood. This may reduce your risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.

Aids Weight Control

Black beans is a great source of fiber, which helps in maintaining a healthy body weight.

Note, to achieve all the health benefits of black beans, start with dry beans instead of canned.
