Green beans, while seemingly common are actually a great and underestimated health food. String beans are rich in antioxidants, including vitamin C, manganese and beta-carotene, which provide a direct benefit to our heart health. Green beans are also high in vitamin K, a nutrient imperative to the blood clotting process and to supporting healthy bones.
