If you expect that herbal medicine will ease the symptoms of your illness, you will be disappointed. Symptoms of the diseases can only be eased gradually, depending to stage of the treatment which directly address to the cause of the disease.

Intake of kidney bean regularly may reduced risk of complication in obese patients, a study conducted by renowned institute insisted.

Kidney bean is popular because of its kidney shape, strong flavor and color of reddish brown in nature, genus Phaseolus, belonging to the family Fabaceae. The bean is often an excellent dietary selection with no cholesterol, but a good source of protein and minerals.

Obesity is a medical condition of excess body fat has accumulated overtime. According to the Body Mass Index(BMI),  a BMI of over 30 is an indication of obesity. Unfortunately, 68% of American population are either overweight or obese.

According to the Instituto Tecnológico de Durango,, kidney bean may have potential effects as natural alternative treatments of some metabolic alterations associated with obesity.

The efficacy may involve the regulation of many aspects, including lipid profile, and lipid and carbohydrates metabolisms, in addition to anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities.

The study also found that kidney beans exerted a similar anti obese effect of that of  green tea and its active principles, in both in vitro (cell cultures) and in vivo (animal models).

In fact, the test of different levels of lectin of kidney bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) content (27 g/kg meal) in a high-quality (lactalbumin) control diet in obese Zucker (fafa) rats and their lean littermates, phytochemical compound, bean lectin as a dietary adjunct or therapeutic agent expressed a stimulated gut function and ameliorated obesity, in doses depended manner.The result also indicated that a safe and effective dose-range of bean lectin can be established for human subjects.

Furthermore, standardised and purified P. vulgaris extract (PVE), when employed as a supplement in a mixed balanced meal (60 % carbohydrates, 25 % lipids and 15 % protein), in a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled of 12 volunteers, exerted a significant on glycometabolic and appetite control affecting satiety sensations and lower desire to eat.

But further studies are needed to prove the concept of Kidney Bean as a supplement used as functional food in balanced meals in obese, glucose-intolerant and diabetic subjects.
