Chickpea with a high amount of fiber along with the relevant antioxidant capacities may be considered as a functional ingredient of antioxidants for reduced risk and symptoms of Cardiovascular diseases.
Besides cancer, heart disease kills more than 2,000 Americans every day. Approximately 60 million Americans have heart disease.
Most of the heart diseases are caused by high blood pressure contributes to hardening of the arteries. High levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) build up in the arteries as a result of uncontrolled diet with high levels of saturated fat and trans fat. All these add to the formation of atherosclerosis lesions and eventually arterial blockage or anything that serves to damage the inner lining of blood vessels and impedes the transportation of oxygen and nutrition to the heart can be defined as a risk of heart disease.
According to the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropic, chickpea with Chickpea with significant amounts of all the essential amino acids except sulphur-containing amino acids and important vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, folate and the vitamin A precursor β-carotene may have beneficial effects on some of the important human diseases such as cardiovascular diseases.
Researchers also looked at the total polyphenol and flavonoids concentration and protein concentrations. Both ingredients showed to express antioxidant activity in induced postprandial glycemic excursions and reduced postprandial glycemic load which are the independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disorders (CVD),
Furthermore, in the study of independent risk of CVD, fiber intake found abundantly in chickpeas showed to associate with Cardiac vascular disease (CVD). In total, 157 patients included in this study, dietary fiber intake can retard the decrease in the Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate eGFR, reduce the levels of pro-inflammatory factors, indoxyl sulfate, and serum cholesterol; and is negatively associated with cardiovascular risk.
In fact, the intake of the fiber of any sources has shown to reduce the risk of a number of disease. According to the Biomedical Research Institute Sant Pau - Cardiovascular Research Center Barcelona, fiber is taken together with phytosterols, vitamins and minerals( found in chickpea), exert antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-thrombotic effects contributing to the delay of CVD initiation and progression.
Taken altogether, patients with or without cardiovascular disease may want to include chickpea in their diet, accompanied by good sources of vegetables and fruits.
