In a recent video, Markus Rothcranz explains that a great way to supplement your diet with highly beneficial nutrient is to consume fava beans. Fava beans have been consumed all over the world for thousands of years. Unfortunately, our society doesn’t often offer these powerhouses on the consumer market. They are packed with human growth hormones that slow the aging process and promote energy and well-being.
Fava Beans are also high in fiber and offer ten grams of protein in just one handful or one-quarter cup of beans. This is an amazing amount of protein in such a small serving size. Fava beans make an excellent source of essential nutrients such as B-17 and L-Dopa. These are uncommon in our everyday food in this country and so, therefore, many people are deficient.
Fava beans also encourage healthy levels of probiotics, help regulate the endocrine system and provide immune support. The previously mentioned B-17 vitamin is called the cancer-fighting vitamin and is thought to support the body’s ability to kill cancer cells. Markus also explains that fava beans help control blood pressure, heart function, and gives the body much needed vitamin A for healthy skin and vision. Fava beans can be easily grown in a garden or on a patio so if you aren’t able to find them in your area you can simply grow them yourself.
Fava Beans can be consumed without cooking them. You may opt to remove the waxy coating but it is edible if you wish to leave it on. Markus give a recipe in the video that involved marinating the beans with apple cider vinegar, lots of olive oil, pepper, and other spices. It can sit on the counter for a few hours and be eaten later in the day. The recipe that he gives will keep the beans naturally preserved for some time in your refrigerator.
