Traditional understanding and uses:: Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) believes that Adzuki beans are helpful for Heart and Small Intestine. Adzuki beans are plants that belong to the ‘Herbs that drain Dampness’ category. These herbs are typically diuretics, meaning that they promote the increased production of urine in order to remove Damp that has accumulated in the body.  Ayurvedic medicine also values Adzuki beans for their diuretic and weight-loss actions.

Health benefits: Adzuki beans, like all beans, contain anthocyanin, a powerful flavonoid known for its antioxidant properties.  It is believed that anti-oxidants protect against cancer18 and slow the aging process19.  Adzuki beans have been shown to be anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetes.20 They may protect heart and kidney health.21  They are low in calories and high in fiber, which can help lower cholesterol,22 and improve bowel movements.  They have less starch than most other beans, making them easier to digest, however they are digested slowly which gives you stable energy and blood sugar. Their combination of high potassium and low sodium make them a diuretic, which can help with weight loss.  One cup contains up to 70% of your daily requirement of folate, and 25% of your daily iron, magnesium, and zinc, as well as many other important minerals.*
