One of the main reasons why white kidney bean extract is so effective in weight-loss is its high fibre concentration. The fibre in the kidney beans is easily water-soluble, which causes a solid paste to form in the stomach. This paste encloses our stomach, thus making us feel full for longer. The fibre also keeps your blood sugar levels at a constant level, avoiding discharging too much insulin, which in turn helps prevent weight gain. White kidney beans can not only help the body to lose weight, but can also strengthen your heart and your cardiovascular system, as the beans are rich in folic acid or vitamin B9. This vitamin helps the heart because it reduces the level of homocysteine in the body, an amino acid contained in the blood.
