Tips: Eating more beans in summer can help strengthen the spleen and remove dampness

Summer dampness is a prominent feature of Foshan’s summer weather. It invades the human body and can easily cause discomfort in the spleen and stomach and poor appetite. From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, most beans such as mung beans and red beans have the effect of strengthening the spleen and removing dampness, which is beneficial to remove the moisture accumulated in the body in summer and promote the function of strengthening the spleen.

Specific to the efficacy of each bean, Pan Yong Introduction –
mung bean< span>The skin contains a lot of antioxidants, such as flavonoids, tannins, saponins, etc. mung beans also contain alkaloids, stigmasterol and a large amount of dietary fiber. Eating mung beans in summer can help clear away heat and detoxify and relieve heat stroke.

red beans also have similar effect. However, in traditional Chinese medicine, we prefer to use chixiaodou, which has a better effect of removing dampness, and has obvious effects of diuresis, swelling, and invigorating the spleen and stomach, which is very suitable for summer consumption. Although red beans do not have such great medicinal value, they have better taste and more starch, and are liked by more people.

peas It is also a summer favorite. According to statistics, every 100 grams of peas contains about 49 mg of vitamin B10, and sweating in hot weather will lose some B vitamins, so peas are very suitable for summer consumption.

Also, beans in Lentils and edamame are also rich in B vitamins, which also help supplement the human body with B vitamins and achieve the effect of strengthening the spleen and dehumidifying.

However, Pan Yong also pointed out that beans with spleen and dampness properties are only part of it, and not all beans are suitable for summer. Common mung beans, peas, etc. are more suitable, and warm black beans are not suitable for summer consumption.
