The Amazing Health Benefits Of Peas(Minji)

Promote Good Digestion

Peas work wonders for your body's digestion. This is due to their high fibre content which is present in them that aids in maintaining good digestive health. Fibre is important because it adds bulk to the stool, thereby enhancing smoother bowel regularity. The fibre in peas help aid in overall digestion.

Good Source Of Iron

Peas are a rich source of iron. Iron deficiency is the leading cause of anaemia. What happens is that if you don't have enough iron, your body becomes unable to make enough healthy oxygen-carrying red blood cells thereby causing you to have a haemoglobin deficiency. Iron aids in combating fatigue thereby giving you strength.

Build Immunity

Peas are rich in vitamin C, which is an essential nutrient that therefore makes it one of the best immunity building foods. A single serving of peas supplies half your daily vitamin C needs. Peas contain an antioxidant known as phytoalexins,that is capable of inhibiting H.Pylori ; the bacterium that causes stomach and duodenal ulcers and stomach cancer.

Good For Eye Health

Peas are amazing for eye health. This is due to the fact that peas are packed with the carotenoid pigment known as lutein. Lutein is important as it works in reducing the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration or loss of vision in old age.

Good For Heart Health

Peas have a high insoluble fibre content that helps in reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke. Peas also aid in ensuring a stable blood sugar regulation in the body.

Good For Weight Loss

Peas are good for weight loss as they are low in fat and calories as compared to heavier legumes such as beans and cowpeas. The high content of fibre in peas also plays a role in weight loss as well. Fibre helps in inducing the feeling of fullness for longer which keeps one from overeating. 

Good For Skin

Peas are an excellent source of Vitamin C, which plays a significant role in the production of collagen. Collagen is highly vital as it helps in keeping the skin firm and glowing. Vitamin C also protects the cells from damage that is caused by free radicals.

The antioxidants found in peas aid in fighting oxidative damage caused by the free radicals. The antioxidants which are present in peas are catechin,carotenoid, flavonoids, epicatechin and alpha carotene that aid in preventing the signs of aging.

Good For Men's Health

Peas help in increasing the sperm count and motility. Peas contain a substance known as glycodelin that aids in strengthening sperms and improving their ability in fertilization.
