A Healthier Heart with Chickpeas

Consuming 1 cup daily of chickpeas supplies you with 70% of folate, the recommended amount to lower levels of amino acids which make the heart weak. The beans are high in magnesium, a mineral that increases circulation and strengthens blood vessel walls.

One cup of chickpeas provides molybdenum, a mineral that helps cleanse the body of headache-causing sulfites. The soluble fiber in the mighty beans balances blood sugar and provides slow-burning energies to prolong satiation and fight cravings.

These golden legumes possess high stores of trytophan, the amino acid that soothes anxiety to help prevent stress-induced munching. To sum it up, the detoxifying enzymes in chickpeas enhance health and speed slimming.

I love them.

I read an article the other day stating we consume too much magnesium.
I haven't yet looked into the matter. Have you?

Hi. We love peas, and we cook them frequently, as well as beans. Just didn´t know exactly why they are so recommended, specially the stress reduction part.
Cheers.

Honestly my husband and I don't care for peas knowing that they have lots of health benefits. But we are trying to eat at least once a week.
