Other nutrients, such as vitamins A and B and coumestrol, help reduce inflammation and lower your risk of chronic conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis.




So, what are some health benefits of peas? This short article will explain just some of the many reasons to keep them on hand and enjoy often.


Good Source of Plant Based Protein

Being rich in fibre and one of the best plant-based proteins makes peas a satisfying component of a meal. They are also a useful vegan source of iron, which is needed for making red blood cells and transporting oxygen around the body.


May Improve Blood Sugar With a low glycemic index (GI) and a high fibre content, peas are a useful inclusion if you need to monitor your blood sugar levels. Peas contain starch in the form of amylose, which slows our digestion and as a result, studies support that they may help improve our blood sugar balance. Peas also contain nutrients like magnesium, B vitamins and vitamin C, all of which help support blood sugar management.


May Support Digestive Health

Peas are rich in fiber which both supports digestive health and fuels the beneficial gut microbes, which play a pivotal role in our health. Much of the fiber content is soluble, which may alleviate constipation. Eating more fiber is associated with a reduced risk of a number of conditions including obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

May Support Heart Health

Peas contain heart-friendly minerals including magnesium, potassium and calcium and are also rich in antioxidant nutrients like vitamin C, as well as phytonutrients including carotenoids and flavonols which are heart protective and support cardiovascular function. The soluble fibre peas contain helps us manage cholesterol levels, especially LDL cholesterol.


May Be Cancer Protective

Regularly including legumes, like peas, in your diet may reduce the risk of cancer due to their high antioxidant levels. Peas also contain natural compounds called saponins, these compounds have been shown to help protect against some forms of cancer.


As a friendly reminder, Legumes are a common allergen, and peas are no exception. Special attention should be taken if you have been diagnosed with a legume allergy, this might include peanuts and soy.
