Many people, despite the clear health benefits of beans, avoid them out of worry about a variety of medical issues.
Consuming an excessive amount of beans can lead to flatulence, stomach irritation, altered bowel movements, and bloating.
In this article on EKO HOT BLOG, we will be looking at some medical conditions that eating beans could worsen.
1. Gastrointestinal issue
Beans are an excellent source of both protein and fibre, but they also contain carbs that are difficult to digest and can lead to bloating, gas, and cramps. The human body does not produce any enzymes capable of digesting them. Instead, gas is produced by bacteria in your digestive tract.
For 12 weeks, study participants were given either a half cup or a quarter cup of beans each day. Less than half of the people had worse flatulence after eating pinto or baked beans in the first week, while 19 per cent had worse gas after eating black-eyed peas. Between three and eleven per cent of participants reported increased flatulence over the course of the study.
The medical condition of constipation is defined as less than three bowel movements per week. As many as 27% of people can attest to having witnessed this phenomenon, along with its subsequent symptoms of bloating and gas. The likelihood of developing it increases with age or inactivity.
Consuming excessive amounts of beans may lead to constipation. But this is reliant on how robust your immune system is. The bowel becomes started when bowel movements decrease in frequency. Dietary shifts or a deficiency in dietary fibre are the most typical culprits in this.
The only way this disadvantage can manifest itself after eating beans is if you don’t drink enough water. This is because both soluble and insoluble fibres are present in whole grains, and to function normally, soluble fibres need to be dissolved in liquid.
3. Renal failure
High quantities of phosphate and potassium in beans make them difficult for dialysis patients to eat. Instead, incorporate beans of various kinds into your regular diet.
Sixteen to twenty-five grams of protein and four to nine grams of fibre are found in a quarter cup of beans. Dialysis patients should minimize or avoid this meal because getting adequate fibre in the kidney diet is challenging.
