Bean Friendly

If beans don’t agree with you, or you just can’t or won’t eat them, be sure you’re in­clud­ing these im­por­tant sup­ple­ments in your diet:

Better Nutrition - - NATURAL REMEDY -

DI­GES­TIVE EN­ZYMES. Look for a di­ges­tive sup­ple­ment for­mu­lated specif­i­cally for beans, or one that con­tains al­pha- galac­tosi­dase, an en­zyme that helps break down the com­plex sug­ars in beans.

FIBER. Beans are ex­tremely high in both sol­u­ble and in­sol­u­ble fiber. Choose a fiber sup­ple­ment that con­tains both, and if you’re avoid­ing beans be­cause of di­ges­tive is­sues, check with your doc­tor first.

B- COM­PLEX VI­TA­MINS. Beans are packed with Bs, so if you’re not a legume lover and don’t eat a var­ied diet, con­sider sup­ple­ment­ing. Sublin­gual forms are great if you suf­fer from di­ges­tive prob­lems.

MIN­ERAL COM­PLEX. Beans are an ex­cel­lent source of mag­ne­sium, cop­per, phos­pho­rous, iron, potas­sium, and man­ganese. If you also avoid nuts and seeds, look for a full- spec­trum, mul­ti­min­eral sup­ple­ment. Liq­uid forms tend to be bet­ter ab­sorbed, es­pe­cially if you have di­ges­tive is­sues.

PRO­TEIN. Most of us get plenty of pro­tein, but if you’re a ve­gan and don’t eat beans, you may need to sup­ple­ment. Look for pro­tein pow­ders made from sprouted rice, sprouted quinoa, hemp seeds, chia seeds, or ar­ti­choke pro­tein.
