Lentil is not a very popular legume. It is usually seen during the New Year since it is known for attracting wealth and good luck… but, what about you, do you eat lentils?
Lentil is rich in vitamins and minerals and brings many health benefits, such as lowering cholesterol, detoxifying the body, and preventing anemia.
It is a versatile food for many recipes and works as a substitute for beans. With all these nutrients, lentil maintains a healthy body and prevents some health problems.
Let’s see some of its benefits:
Improves heart health
Eating lentils helps prevent cardiovascular diseases because of nutrients like magnesium and potassium.
Helps with weight loss
Lentil can be a huge ally for those who want to lose weight since it is a source of fiber and increases satiety.
Good for the bones
Thanks to the isoflavones it contains, lentils increase calcium retention in bones.
Regularly consuming this legume improves intestinal function, thanks to its soluble and insoluble fiber.
Strengthens the immune system
Because it is rich in zinc, an essential mineral for immunity, lentils can prevent colds and the flu.
Improves the mood
Excellent source of tryptophan, the precursor of serotonin, lentil improves the mood of anyone who eats it.
Helps fight anemia
