Benefits of eating Long Beans


  1. Protein:
    Your body uses protein to strengthen, repair and build tissue. The Harvard School of Public Health recommends all kinds of beans as rich sources of lean protein. A half cup of string beans offers up approximately a gram of protein, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
  2. Low Calories:
    A half cup of long beans has just 15 calories, reports the University of Illinois Extension. This makes beans a low-calorie food. The fiber can also keep you feeling full, thereby helping you stay on a diet.
  3. High in Calcium:
    If you avoid dairy, you can get calcium in long beans. Your body needs calcium to keep bones strong and teeth sturdy. A half cup of string beans yields 31.5 mg of this important mineral, according to the University of Illinois Extension.



When people refer to long beans, they're typically talking about the traditional green bush bean, reports the University of Illinois Extension. The extension says these beans are easy to grow in a backyard garden, and you can find them in many farmers markets and grocery stores. Enjoy these beans raw or cooked, and you may experience several health benefits.
