6 Super Beans that Lower Blood Pressure

Welcome to the Healthy Blood Pressure dot coma youtube channel. 

Beans are loaded with soluble fiber, magnesium and potassium, which make them one of the most perfect super foods for decreasing high blood pressure. 

In this video, I want to introduce you to six specific beans that will help to lower your blood pressure if they are included in your diet.

1. Lentils

As a delicious way to spice up any salad or dish, lentils also have some added health 

benefits. 

Studies have revealed that people who consume a rich diet of lentils, have less risk of developing heart disease or strokes. 

In fact, lentils are a good source of protein, magnesium and potassium, and can help

reduce blood pressure, cholesterol levels and the risk of plaque in the blood vessels.

2. Chickpeas

Although these little peas are usually mashed, blended, seasoned and disguised in a

mean hummus dip, there’s more to these feisty legumes than meets the eye.

Chickpeas are packed with heart-healthy nutrition and rich in fiber, potassium,

vitamin C, and vitamin B-6. 

This can help lower cholesterol in the blood and help decrease the risk of high blood

pressure.

3. Kidney Beans

Kidney beans are delicious in soups and stews, and they’re also great for your

memory and heart health. 

Kidney beans are high in fiber, low in fat and a rich source of vitamins and minerals

like magnesium, folate and protein. 

This means kidney beans are great for lowering homocysteine, which can help reduce the risk of heart attacks, peripheral vascular diseases, strokes, cancer and diabetes.

4. Black Beans

Black beans are packed with fiber, protein, potassium, folate, vitamin

B6, and phytonutrients, which means they can help lower cholesterol and reduce

the risk of heart disease. 

They also taste delicious in soups, as a side dish or in a burrito and can make you feel full with little fat, so they also help weight-loss.

5. Peas

Peas are a great source of fiber, protein and vitamins that are low-fat and cholesterol free. 

New research from the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada shows for the first time that concentrating extracts from the pea can have a dramatic effect on blood pressure and chronic kidney disease.

6. SoyBean

Soy beans are high in protein and soy phytoestrogens, which may also help reduce a number of risk factors for heart disease, including blood pressure and blood cholesterol. 

Soy also contains nutrients called isoflavones and isoflavones boost production of enzymes that make nitric oxide, which helps relax blood vessels and lower blood pressure.

6. Edamame

As one of the healthiest and addictive snacks around, edamame is packed with

nutrition. 

As part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet, edamame contains

plant protein and tons of folate, fiber and cholesterol-lowering phytosterols. 

This means the soy protein can help reduce cholesterol levels and the risk of heart

disease.

So when you’re creating your hearty healthy diet plan, make sure you include one or more of these types of beans that will help you lower your blood pressure.
