A favorite scene of summer is sitting in a porch swing while snapping green beans for dinner. Picking them from the garden is fun, too, from either pole beans, requiring a stake for support, or bush beans, which don’t. Bean varieties include pinto, kidney, lima, black, red, or white, and yellow wax beans. French beans, sliced lengthwise, stay in the pod and are long and slender, while many others are shelled and dried for later use.

Health Benefits of Green Beans

If you’re looking for a vegetable with stellar amounts of antioxidants and flavonoids, green beans certainly fit the bill. Flavonoids like catechins (also found in green tea) in green beans help reduce body fat and can prevent obesity. Epicatechins improve heart health and help prevent cancer and diabetes, and the procyanidins in beans provide even more antioxidants.

Green beans also are a great source of vitamin A and antioxidants, such as lutein, zeaxanthin, and betacarotenes, which neutralize harmful free radicals. Vitamin C helps fight infection, such as in colds or flu, fiber helps keep your system flushed from toxins, and the carotene zeaxanthin protects eye health from UV rays by absorbing into the retina and helping to protect against macular degeneration.
