5 health benefits of chickpeas (चने)

1.    Diabetes: Chickpeas are particularly high in soluble fibre which helps to regulate blood sugar levels by optimizing digestion. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends a minimum of 21 to 25 grams of fibre per day for women and 30 to 38 grams per day for men.

2.     Bone health: Chickpeas can be beneficial for bone health as they are a rich source of anti-oxidants and vital nutrients like iron, zinc, calcium, phosphate, magnesium and vitamin K . These nutrients contribute to building and maintaining bone mineral density and strength. Though phosphate and calcium are both important in bone structure, the careful balance of the two minerals is essential. Consuming high amounts of phosphorus with little calcium intake can lead to weak bones.

3.   Blood pressure: Low sodium diet is essential for maintaining a low blood pressure. Chickpeas are low in sodium. One cup of chickpeas contains around 11 milligrams of sodium. According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, less than 2 percent of the United States adults meet the daily 4,700-milligram recommendation.

4.  Heart healthThe high fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B-6 content in chickpeas helps to balance the cholesterol levels in your body and prevents panic attacks, heart attacks and strokes. Chickpeas contain significant amounts of fiber, which helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease.

5.     Cancer: The mineral selenium which is not present in most fruits and vegetables, can be found in chickpeas. It helps the enzymes of the liver to function properly and detoxify some cancer-causing compounds in the body. Additionally, selenium prevents inflammation and decreases tumor growth rates also. High-fiber intake from chickpeas and other legumes like whole grains, fruits, and vegetables can decrease the risk of colorectal cancer.

6.  Weight Loss: Garbanzo beans (चने) are packed with nutrients, combined with the dietary fiber, and are perfect for people who are trying to lose weight. The fiber in chickpeas helps the body feel full for longer, by interacting with ghrelin. The blend of various nutrients and minerals also keeps the body energized and alert, preventing fatigue and snacking in between the meals. They serve as an important source of proteins and starch needed for the growth and development of the body.
