Did you know?

A single serving of green beans supplies you about 15% of your recommended daily dose of fiber, a must for healthy digestion. But fiber also plays a role in reducing cholesterol in the body. Soluble fiber can actually absorb “bad” LDL cholesterol, as well as overall cholesterol levels, naturally eliminating it from the body. Looking to improve your heart health? Eat more green beans and get your cholesterol down!
