“Lentils are a hassle-free compliment, with a high nutritional value that anyone can benefit living a plant based lifestyle!”
Fred Bisci, Your Healthy Journey
Lentils, especially sprouted lentils, contain all the essential amino acids (PLANT PROTEINS) that are needed by our body for repair and growth for good muscle-building and smooth functioning and performance of the body.
Lentils add essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber to a plant-based lifestyle, while also providing plant protein. When animal meat, a major source of saturated and trans fats ( animal products contains over 80% nitrogenous waste) is replaced with a higher fiber food like lentils, the risk for heart degeneration is decreased. The potassium, calcium, and magnesium in lentils have been found to help decrease blood pressure naturally.
Lentils have selenium which prevents inflammation, may prevent abnormal cell formation and improve immune response to infection by stimulating production of killer T-cells. It also plays a role in liver enzyme function and helps detoxify some carcinogen-causing compounds in the body.
Lentils, with their negligible amounts of fat, are an ideal source of protein without adding any extra fat to the body, thereby promoting a healthy heart. Lentils contain magnesium, which helps in relaxing cardiovascular muscles. Lentils provide a supply of antioxidants that decreased the chances of developing plaque buildup in arteries and play a role in neutralizing free radicals, preventing cell and gene damage (aging).
Lentils are a good source of many vitamins, including vitamin B3, which plays a significant role in improving the digestive and nervous systems. Vitamin B3 offers many other benefits, including cholesterol control, a decreased risk of neurological, osteoarthritis, and blood sugar dysfunction.
Lentils increase steady, slow-burning energy due its fiber and complex carbohydrates. Lentils are also a great non-heme source of iron, which transports oxygen throughout your body and is key to energy production, metabolism, and athletic performance.
Lentils are rich in plant-based fiber, both the soluble and insoluble type. Soluble fiber forms a gel-like substance in the digestive tract that catches bile (which contains cholesterol) and eliminates it out of the body. Insoluble fiber helps to increase stool bulk while preventing constipation and helps prevent digestive disorders.
