Our Hero, the Chickpea

These little legumes are not only a tasty treat they are also a good source of vitamins and have been associated with a number of possible health benefits for medical conditions.
Besides being an excellent vegan and gluten-free source of protein and fiber, chickpeas also contain exceptional levels of iron, vitamin B-6, folate, vitamin C and magnesium. Many studies have suggested that the consumption of chickpeas decreases the risk of obesity and overall mortality, diabetes, heart disease and promotes improved bone health, a healthy complexion and hair, increased energy, overall lower weight and blood pressure.

Selenium which is found in chickpeas prevents inflammation and helps detoxify some cancer-causing compounds and can also decrease tumor growth rates. Chickpeas also contain folate which plays a role in DNA synthesis and repair. Saponins which are phytochemicals present in chickpeas, prevent cancer cells from multiplying and spreading. High-fiber intakes from fruits and vegetables like chickpeas are associated with a lowered risk of colorectal cancer.

Choline is a very important and versatile nutrient in chickpeas that helps with sleep, muscle movement, learning and memory. Because of their high-fiber content, chickpeas help to prevent constipation and promote regularity for a healthy digestive tract.

Enjoying as little as 1/2 cup (125 mL) of chickpeas daily can keep you feeling full and consuming fewer calories.
