Black beans help us feel energized and fuller than almost any other food. They are very high in fibre, which gives a feeling of fullness like meat, they also contain protein, but unlike meat, they do not contain saturated fat and finally they are a very good source of calcium, magnesium, vitamin B6 and iron!
With all these nutrients it is no wonder that black beans are considered the new superfood! The fiber and protein in black beans help move food through our stomach and colon properly. They are highly digestible and contain over 8 different flavonoids, antioxidants and phytochemicals.
They provide amino acids and molybdenum, essential for the functioning of the nervous system, plus along with the many vitamins and minerals found in black beans, there is also folic acid, which regulates amino acid levels.
