Nutrition, Health, and Beauty Benefits of Peas

Peas provide the body with protein, vitamins, and minerals. Peas prepared on their own are naturally cholesterol-free. They help support a heart-healthy eating plan, because they are naturally high in potassium and fiber. The fiber content not only helps control weight, but also supports a healthy gut microbiome.

Peas are perfect for vegetarians and vegans because they provide the body with adequate plant-based protein. Protein is important for strong hair and nails. Peas contain saponin, which has anti-inflammatory properties. That is why this vegan spring pea soup recipe is so nourishing for your body.

One cup of peas contains 7.9 grams of protein and 30% of one’s dietary fiber intake. Vitamin B1, thiamine, helps support the nervous system and cell repair. The phytochemicals also help prevent DNA damage, another bonus beauty benefit.

The fiber in unprocessed plant foods, including legumes, is known to reduce the risk of cancer, specifically of the large intestines. Fiber also makes legumes a slow-releasing, low-GI food, important for stabilizing blood sugar levels. In addition, fiber reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, partially by drawing cholesterol out of the body. (1)
