These seeds are one of the common food items in India, which are widely used in all kinds of traditional food of this country.

These seeds are rich in vitamin B6, pantothenic acid and thiamin, and cooked lentils have 358 micrograms of vitamin B9 (folate). Eating just one cup of cooked lentil dal a day provides 90% of the 400 micrograms of folate an adult needs daily.

Benefits of consuming dal lentil

Among the benefits of consuming Dal Ades are:

Rich in nutrients

Lentils are rich in nutrients such as B vitamins, magnesium, zinc and potassium. More than 25% of these seeds are protein, which is considered an excellent substitute for meat. Also, lentils are rich in fiber, which helps to maintain the health of the digestive system, regular bowel movements and the growth of beneficial bacteria (probiotics) in the intestine.

Prevention of some diseases

Consuming lentils can maintain the function and health of the heart due to the presence of compounds such as folate, potassium and fiber. Fiber prevents the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases due to the reduction of blood cholesterol levels, potassium due to the regulation of blood pressure and folate due to the reduction of blood homocysteine levels (a factor that increases blood pressure). High fiber and protein and low glycemic index of lentils can play a role in controlling weight, regulating blood sugar and preventing diabetes.

Contains compounds with antioxidant properties

Lentils are rich in polyphenols such as procyanidin and flavanols, photochemical compounds with antioxidant properties. Polyphenols are able to stop the growth of cancer cells, especially skin cancer cells. Also, lentils have selenium, which may slow down the growth of tumors. Selenium may reduce the incidence of colon, prostate, lung, bladder, skin, esophagus, and stomach cancers.

Positive effect during pregnancy

Lentils are high in folate, which is vital for preventing neural tube defects in babies. This essential vitamin can also reduce the risk of gestational diabetes.
