Health Benefits on Eating Bean Sprouts

Bean sprouts are healthy in a lot of ways, from the high concentrations of vitamin C to the proteins and fibers that help give them their distinctive crunch. Here are some of the benefits you can get by adding bean sprouts to your diet.

Blood pressure support
Bean sprouts may help prevent and treat high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, thanks to protein building blocks called peptides. Peptides are produced in high concentrations when seeds sprout. They’ve been shown to reduce blood pressure in some studies.

Cancer prevention
The proteins and peptides in bean sprouts may also help reduce the risk of cancer. Studies have shown that these nutrients can slow the growth of cancer cells, including those associated with breast cancer, leukemia, and digestive system cancers.

Digestive wellness
Bean sprouts are a source of insoluble dietary fiber, which aids digestion. It moves quickly through the digestive system, picking up and carrying waste products along as it goes. Fiber helps to “clean out” the colon. It works almost like an internal scrub brush. Having enough insoluble fiber in your diet is important for preventing constipation.

Eye health
Because bean sprouts have high levels of antioxidants, they may help protect you from developing common eye conditions, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is the leading cause of vision loss in adults over age 55. Antioxidants may help reduce your risk of developing AMD. Bean sprouts are also high in vitamin C, which may help prevent cataracts. Studies show that people who consume high levels of vitamin C for 10 years or more have a reduced risk of needing cataract surgery.

Heart health
Bean sprouts may help to improve your overall heart health by balancing cholesterol. Studies show that sprouts may help reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol, which causes the buildup of artery-clogging plaque. Bean sprouts may also increase levels of “good” HDL cholesterol, which helps clear fatty deposits from the blood.
