White beans, also known as white navy beans, offer extraordinary health benefits.

They are loaded with antioxidants which are believed to protect the cells in your body from free radicals, unstable molecules that damage cells.

White beans are also a good source of fiber and protein which makes them rank low on the glycemic index (GI).

Foods with a low GI value do not trigger spikes in blood sugar levels which help to keep the cravings and mood swings at bay as well as lower the risk of heart disease and adult-onset diabetes.

White beans also produce something called alpha-amylase inhibitors which help regulate fat storage in the body by slowing the absorption of carbohydrates.
