Kidney beans are low in fat and rich in folic acid (folate) and magnesium. Folate lowers the risk of heart attack and stroke by reducing the levels of homocysteine in the bloodstream. Magnesium, on the other hand, keeps your arteries clear and prevents clogging, so oxygen and nutrients can quickly be distributed throughout the body. As magnesium deficiency is directly associated with the risk of heart attack, if you have heart-related problems, make it a habit of eating kidney beans every day.
