The wealth in proteins and nucleic acids of beans is an antidote against aging. Since they act as a cell renewer in our body, beans are indispensable in a well-balanced diet.
We must remember that the vegetable proteins that beans provide us with are free of saturated fat and cholesterol. That is why, beans, when combined correctly with other foods, give us all the protein our body needs to function properly.
They are also a source of soluble fiber (which traps cholesterol and other substances) and insoluble fiber (they are filling and a healthy laxative).
