Beans, beans, the magical fruit! Well... we won't finish the rest of that rhyme, but we will tell you that there's some truth to it. Black beans have been to shown to be particularly good for the colon and for digestive tract health. They've been linked to reduced risk of colon cancer and they even help regulate blood sugar due to the steady movement of protein and fiber through the digestive system. Other benefits? Increased cardiovascular and nervous system health.

Selection Process

Black beans come in dried form and must be soaked and cooked before eating or adding to your NutriBlast. Canned beans can be a real timesaver, but be sure to drain and rinse any canned bean before using. Packaged, dried beans should be used within a month.
