Food Therapy: Black Bean the Best on Ameliorated Oxidative Stress in Chronic Diseases

By Kyle J. Norton

People who turn to alternative medicine for treatment of diseases in avoidance of adverse effects induced by conventional medicine should be patient. In compared to herbal medicine; food therapy even takes longer than six months to ease symptoms, depending to stages of the treatment which directly address to the cause of disease.

Black bean may be used as function food to counter the over expression of free radicals through improved antioxidant activity, a university study postulated.

Oxidative Stress is the imbalance between free radical and antioxidant expression.
Black bean, a small roughly ovoid legumes with glossy black shells, genus Phaseolus, belongings to the family Fabaceae can be bought in most grocery stores all around the year in dried and canned forms. It is believed that black bean was first domesticated growth in South America.

According to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the use of common bean peptides may contribute to reduced risk of complications associated to chronic diseases, including oxidative stress.

Proteins and synthesized pure peptides from Mexican black and Brazilian Carioca bean, all showed a significantly rate in reduced oxidative stress through over expression of antioxidant activity.

In a randomized, controlled, crossover trial, 12 adults with metabolic syndrome (MetS) consumed one of three meals (black bean (BB), fiber matched (FM), and antioxidant capacity matched (AM)) on three occasions, then blood of participants is collection before (fasting) and five hours postprandially, Oxidized LDL (oxLDL) showed a trend of declining observed after the Back Bean and antioxidant capacity matched meals at five hours compared to the FM group.

Dr. Reverri EJ, the lead author said" black beans with a typical Western-style meal attenuates postprandial insulin and moderately enhances postprandial antioxidant endpoints in adults with MetS, which could only be partly explained by fiber content and properties of antioxidant capacity".

In the compared black bean peel extract (BBPE), pomegranate peel extract (PPE) and a combination of the two (PPE + BBPE), on streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice study conducted by the Xuzhou Medical College, after 4 weeks of injection, researchers found that PPE, BBPE or PPE + BBPE, DM mice showed in some different degrees, a decrease in blood glucose, increases in insulin secretion and the pancreas weight index, and an increase in antioxidative activity.

The result indicated that mice treated with black bean or combination of black bean showed a significant in reduced levels of oxidative stress through enhanced antioxidant activities.

Taking together,  black bean may have a potential used as therapeutic whole food therapy for treatment in reduced oxidative stress in chronic illness.
