The use of plants for healing purposes has been predated long before the existence of  modern medicine. Herbal plants have formed a fundamental source for conventional medicine in discovery of single ingredient medication, including aspirin (from willow bark), quinine (from cinchona bark), and morphine (from the opium poppy)......

Recent study suggested regular intake of kidney bean may be beneficial in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases.
Kidney bean is popular because of its kidney shape, strong flavor and color of reddish brown in nature.  The bean often is an excellent dietary selection with no cholesterol, but a good source of protein and minerals.

Chronic disease is a medical condition last more than 3 months or more and can not be cured.

According to the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, consumption of kidney bean regularly  attenuated the increased glycaemic stress (hyperglycaemia and hyperinsulinaemia) including diabetes, CVD and cancer.

Dr. Hutchins AM, the lead author said, " (The efficacy of kidney in reduced risk of chronic illness may be attributed to the) glycaemic response and the impact that relationship may have on the risk of developing diabetes, CVD and cancer".

In the study to compared two different illumination conditions during germination (12 h light/12 h dark vs 24 h dark) in lentils (Lensculinaris L.) and kidney beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), melatonin content exerted a significantly antioxidant activity in protection against free radicals as well as showing the use of food as  preventive strategies in combating chronic diseases through the diet.

Furthermore, the investigation of phenolic rich extracts obtained from two kinds of common beans, white kidney beans (WKB) and round purple beans (RPB), extracts Phenolic acids and phenolic compounds expressed a strong antioxidants and anti inflammatory activities in reduced the incidence of several chronic diseases that share an inflammatory component.

Dr. García-Lafuente A, the lead researcher in the study said, "common bean extracts may be used as a source of anti-inflammatory agents as well as a dietary complement for health promotion".

Taking together, intake kidney beans regularly may reduce risk and progression chronic illness through the immunomodutory effects involved increased antioxidant and ameliorated inflammatory activities.
