Lentils  are low in calories and high in nutrition. These easy to cook food, can make salads more exciting, soups heartier and serve as a major protein source on a vegetarian diet.

But these are not the only advantages of to adding lentils into our diet.

Here you can read some of the health benefits that lentils offer.

Adding lentils to your diet can help lower your blood cholesterol.

This is  because lentils have high percentages of soluble fiber.

If you add Turmeric this will also help to lower your cholesterol.

Heart health:

High fiber foods like lentils, can help with reducing the risk of heart disease and improving heart health.

Lentils contain generous supplies of magnesium and folate which are recognized as heart health boosters.

Digestive health:
The high fiber content in lentils is also beneficial for keeping the digestive tract healthy and functioning properly. Common gastrointestinal issues like constipation and IBS can be prevented by consuming enough fiber.

Excellent source of protein:
Lentils are a good source of protein in a vegetarian diet.

In fact, they provide one of the highest protein content from any plant based food.

But since lentils do not contain all of the amino acids required by the body for complete synthesis of protein, it is recommended that they are combined with whole wheat bread or a grain like rice to add complete nutritional value to a meal.

Weight loss:
Although lentils are very rich in nutrients, they are low in their caloric count. There is no fat content in lentils, and all their nutritional value comes from beneficial nutrients like protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals.

High iron content:
Another plus of including lentils into our diet is its high iron content. 

Stay Healthy, 

Stay Happy
