Aside from the fact that lentils are inexpensive and versatile, they are rich in fiber and are packed with complex carbohydrates. Furthermore, lentils are not only beneficial to the regulation of blood sugar levels. 








The following are six reasons to incorporate lentils into your diet:







1.  Lentils lower cholesterol levels – Lentils do not only lower blood sugar levels, but also blood cholesterol levels. This is because lentils contain high amounts of soluble fiber that keep the arteries clean











 

2.  Lentils prevent heart disease – Because lentils lower blood cholesterol levels, the risk of heart disease and stroke is also reduced. 

















Studies revealed that consumption of foods rich in fiber like lentils reduces the risk of heart disease because of their folate and magnesium content. Folate reduces homocysteine levels, which is a primary risk factor for heart disease. 




On the other hand, magnesium enhances blood flow and the delivery of oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. Moreover, low levels of magnesium have been directly linked to heart disease.


















 


3. Lentils aid in digestion – As mentioned above, lentils contain insoluble fiber, which is also beneficial to digestive health. Lentils help prevent constipation and other digestive problems, including irritable bowel syndrome and diverticulosis.






















4.  Lentils are a good source of protein – Lentils are a great source of protein, especially for vegetarians and vegans. In fact, protein makes up 26 percent of lentil’s calories.



















5.  Lentils help in weight loss – Even though lentils are nutrient-dense, they are actually low in calories and virtually do not contain fat.















6.  Lentils increase energy – Because of the fiber and complex carbohydrates that lentils contain, steady, slow-burning energy is also increased upon consumption. In addition, lentils are a good source of iron, which distributes oxygen throughout the body and is essential to energy production and metabolism.
