The superfood for cholesterol and anemia

However, there is good news regarding the treatment of these two conditions and it has to do with a food that many of us have consumed, perhaps ignoring its medicinal properties, the newspaper Semana publishes.

For its part, the Spanish newspaper ABC reports that if you get to have high cholesterol or suffer from anemia, the pea is ideal for treating both ailments, since it is a source of protein, fiber, phosphorus, potassium, thiamin, niacin, folate and vitamin C.

While the Spanish Nutrition Foundation (FEN) explains that eating a serving of peas covers 38% and 23%, respectively, of the recommended intakes of thiamin and niacin in men aged 20 to 39 years with moderate physical activity.

In addition, the nutritionist and dietitian Patricia Ortega, states that being a food rich in fiber, it helps improve intestinal transit, preventing constipation and improving bacterial flora, regulates our blood glucose levels and promotes the reduction of blood cholesterol.

As it is a non-heme iron (of vegetable origin) whose absorption rate is lower than heme iron, it is recommended to combine it in the same meal with foods rich in vitamin C (a citrus fruit, for example) to improve its absorption.

Peas, also called split peas or peas, are known as a superfood for all their benefits and for providing high amounts of vitamins and minerals.

However, it must be taken into account that they can cause excess gas due to their fiber content, making the person feel bloated. Similarly, cause colic or cramping in the belly.

If there are pre-existing medical conditions, it is important to consult the treating specialist or a nutritionist to find out if its consumption is convenient.
