SLASH Heart Risk With This "Gross" Food

Dear Turapür Today Reader,

Back with I was a kid, I did whatever it took to avoid eating my peas.

When mom wasn’t looking, I dropped them on the floor and squashed them beneath my shoe… I spat them into a glass of milk and excused myself without a sip…

And when the jig was up (and I was caught), I still pressed my luck… “accidentally” pushing them off my plate and onto the floor, where the family dog loved to lick up scraps.

Thankfully, I outgrew my picky eating. These days, I enjoy peas, lima beans, and other legumes multiple times per week…

And if you’re at all worried about your heart (or your doc keeps droning on about your blood pressure), new research reveals that you should do the same…

Because these “childhood foes” can SLASH your risk of heart disease!

In a new study, an umbrella review published in Advances in Nutrition, researchers analyzed data from a number of past studies into heart health, legumes, and dietary pulses.

Now, you’re probably more familiar with legumes. Those are fruits grown from plants in the pea family (Fabaceae) and harvested as vegetable crops. They include foods like:

  • Green beans
  • Edamame
  • Snow peas, and
  • Tamarind

Meanwhile, pulses are basically just legumes that are harvested as a dry seed or for dry grain. Those include:

  • Lentils,
  • Chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans),
  • Garden peas,
  • And other assorted beans (lima, mung, kidney, pinto, etc).

Regardless of how they’re classified, though, many of these foods come with similar health benefits… notably reducing blood sugar, increasing healthy gut bacteria, and improving levels of fiber and B vitamins…

And now, we know that they can PROTECT YOUR TICKER!

In the umbrella review, researchers saw folks who consumed the most pulses and legumes (compared to those who ate the least) were SIGNIFICANTLY less likely to develop heart disease, clogged arteries, and high blood pressure.

Plus, they were less likely to become obese!

Specifically, the data analysis showed that people in the high-legume group were an average of 8 percent less likely to develop heart disease… 10 percent less likely to have clogged arteries… and 13 percent less likely to be obese…

And when you remember that these were average from MULTIPLE studies, those numbers get even more impressive!

According to past studies, these effects likely come from legumes’ healthy fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants, which may tamp down damaging inflammation, reduce harmful oxidative damage, and improve cholesterol.

Clinical trials suggest eating up to 2 cups of cooked legumes per day to see heart-protecting benefits – so, chow down!
