Expectation of easing symptoms after a few days of herbal treatment, in most cases are ended with disappointment. Symptoms of the diseases can only be eased gradually, depending to stage of the treatment which directly addresses to the cause of the disease.

Recently study conducted by renowned institute suggested that oral administrated kidney bean may have a potential health benefits in reduced risk and treatment of microbial infection.

Kidney bean is popular because of its kidney shape, strong flavor and color of reddish brown in nature, It is often an excellent dietary selection with no cholesterol and good sources of protein and mineral.

According to the research article posted at the Journal of Microbial & Biochemical Technology, lectins isolated from kidney bean seed displayed a significant antifungal and anti bacteria activity on many straits of Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538, and Streptococcus mutants ATCC 25175, Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 10145 and Klebsiella pneumonia and Candida albican.

The chemical compound lectins also manifested inhibitory effects on human immunodeficiency virus-1 reverse transcriptase of enzymes in catalyzed the formation of RNA from a DNA and alpha-glucosidase in lower the rate of glucose absorption.

Dr. Ye XY, the lead author in the study said, " It(Lectins) exerted a suppressive effect on growth of the fungal species Fusarium oxysporum, Coprinus comatus, and Rhizoctonia solani".

Other researchers suggested that the potency of kidney bean in exhibited anti microbial effect may be a result of its source of nondigestible fermentable components and phenolic compounds. 

In  healthy mice exposed to dextran sodium sulphate (DSS) (via drinking water, 2% DSS w/v, 7 days) induced colitis and fed with one of three isocaloric diets: basal diet control (BD), or BD supplemented with 20% cooked white (WK) or dark red kidney (DK) bean flour for 3 weeks, mice fed with both bean diets reduced, significantly disease severity, colonic damage and exerted increased mRNA expression of antimicrobial effects involved innate immunity and protected mucosa from insults through stabilizing the mucus layer and promoted healing of the epithelium and reduced proinflammatory cytokins demonstration.

Furthermore, cooked white (WK) or dark red kidney (DK) bean fed mice also enhanced microbial-derived SCFA metabolite production in regulated fermentation products, gut barrier integrity and the microbial defensive response .....
Taking together, Kidney beans ( Phaseolus) showed to process a strong anti-microbial effect in reduced infection and inflammation caused by straits of bacteria and fungi, especially in protected the digestive system against inflammation cause of  colitis.
