Why We Love Green Peas

As a source of vitamin K, manganese, thiamin, copper, vitamin C, phosphorous, and folate, green peas offer a remarkable nutrition profile. Green peas are a top food ingredient in all our formulas (excluding Keto) and work synergistically with other powerful ingredients to help support overall good health.

Why else are peas so good for you?  Here are five lesser-known benefits of why you should include more green peas, and products with green peas, in your diet.

  • Green peas have high fiber content (one cup provides eight grams!).
  • Gastrointestinal function (i.e. the work of your digestive system) may be improved with the addition of peas. One study by Dahl et al. demonstrated that adding just four grams of fiber from pea hulls per day resulted in a significant increase in bowel movement frequency … especially in those who started the study with a low bowel movement frequency.
  • Green peas offer a myriad of potent antioxidants. One of its powerful antioxidants includes coumestrol, a polyphenol.
  • Green peas contain healthy saponins, which may interfere with the reabsorption of cholesterol in the digestive tract.
  • Phenolic acids and flavanols in the green peas provide additional antioxidant and anti-inflammatory support.
