More About Green Beans From Our Newsletter

Did you know that the wealth of vitamin K (22% daily value) found in green beans plays an important role in bone health? Although calcium and vitamin D are often the nutrients highlighted in discussions on bone and prevention of bone-related disease, current research is increasingly revealing the importance of vitamin K. Although much of the research has focused on the K2 form of the vitamin, the K1 form found in greens beans has also been associated with better bone mineral density and decreased risk of bone-related diseases. Plus, health-promoting bacteria in the human intestines can convert a small amount of K1 into K2. So, green beans as well as a variety of other green vegetables (including kale, spinach, collard greens and mustard greens) that are excellent sources of vitamin K1, provide welcome support for our bones. Green beans' benefits don't end here since they are also a rich source of other vitamins and minerals, many of which act as powerful antioxidants that help combat the free radical activity associated with increased risk of both cancer and heart disease.
