    Re: Benefits of rajma/ kidney beans

    உடலை வலுவாக்கும் உணவுகளில் பயறு வகைகளுக்கு முக்கியப் பங்கு உண்டு. புரதச் சத்து மிகுதியாக இருப்பதால், பயறு வகைகள் அசைவ உணவுக்கு இணையாகக் கருதப்படுகின்றன.

    பொதுவாகப் பயறு வகைகள் உலர்ந்து விதைகளாக மாறுவதற்கு முந்தைய நிலையிலும் சாப்பிட ஏற்றவை தான். ஆனாலும், நன்றாக முதிர்ந்தப் பயறு வகைகளில்தான் குறைவான ஈரப்பதமும் அதிகச் சத்துக்களும் இருக்கும். முளைவிட்டப் பயறு வகைகளில் அதிக அளவு நீர்ச் சத்தும், வைட்டமின் சத்துக்களும் இருப்பதால் பூஞ்சைக் காளான் வளர ஆரம்பிக்கும் வாய்ப்பு உள்ளது. அதனால், பாதுகாப்பாக வைப்பது அவசியம்.

    கால்சியம், பாஸ்பரஸ், இரும்புச் சத்து மற்றும் வைட்டமின் - பி காம்ப்ளெக்ஸ், ரிபோஃபிளேவின் போன்ற சத்துக்கள் அதிகம் இருப்பதால், உடலுக்கு நல்ல ஊட்டத்தைக் கொடுக்கும்.


    தசைகளை நன்றாக இறுகச்செய்வதோடு, மலச் சிக்கலையும் தடுக்கும் ஆற்றல் கொண்டது. இதில் புரதம், கலோரி, மாவுச் சத்து, கால்சியம், பாஸ்பரஸ், இரும்பு ஆகிய சத்துக்கள் உண்டு. மெக்னீஷியம், துத்தநாகம், தாமிரம், நார்ச் சத்து ஓரளவு இருக்கின்றன. சோடியம், பொட்டாஷியம் ஆகியவை மிகக் குறைந்த அளவே இருக்கின்றன. சிறுநீரகக் கோளாறு இருப்பவர்கள் தவிர்ப்பது நல்லது. உடலை வருத்தி உடற்பயிற்சி செய்பவர்கள், கர்ப்பிணிகள், சர்க்கரை மற்றும் இதய நோயாளிகள் அனைவரும் சாப்பிட ஏற்றது.
