Nutrition

Green beans are a good source of bulk laxative. They protect the mucus membrane of the colon. They reduce cholesterol

levels by decreasing absorption of cholesterol binding bile acids in the colon. Green beans contain vitamin A and B-carotene.

They also contain zea-xanthin , an important dietary substance which supports the retinal macula lutea in the eyes which

supports ultraviolent light filter functions(www.nutrition-and-you.com/green_beans.html).

Green beans have a good source of vitamin B-6 and B-1. They have minerals such as iron, potassium, and magnesium which

are essential for body metabolism (www.nutrition and you.com).
