Green Beans,Reduce the Risk of Cardiovascular Diseases (CVD)

By Kyle J. Norton

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a group of diseases associated with blood vessels and heart muscle.

Depending on the types of blood vessel damage or blocked, and heart muscle damage, CVD can be a coronary artery disease caused by the hardening of the arteries that interfere with the blood flow to the heart or stroke caused by reducing oxygen supply to the brain cells.

Heart disease is a class of conditions associated with blood vessels and heart muscle that affect the heart functioning, including coronary artery disease; heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias); and heart defects.
Coronary artery disease is a condition in most cases associated with an inflammatory cholesterol-containing plaque in the arteries.

Stroke can be caused by reduced blood flow or small blood vessel bleeding, leading to the death of neurons that affect parts of the brain functioning.

Heart failure, a major health problem associated with the reduced function of the heart affects more than 6.5 million Americans, a leading cause of hospitalization in people older than age 65.

According to the statistics provided by the CDC, every year, heart disease causes the death of 610,000 people in the United States. In other words, every year, 1 in every 4 deaths in the US are caused by heart disease.

Believe it or not, every year about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack including the first attack of 525,000 patients.

There are many prevalent factors associated with cardiovascular disease including family history, age ethnicity, gender, medical conditions such as cholesterol high blood pressure and diabetes. 

Some researchers suggested overconsumption of carbohydrate over the long-term may be one major condition that causes the onset of CVD.

Dr. Norman J. Temple in the examination of the effect of fat, sugar, whole grains in the risk of heart disease wrote, ” The evidence linking carbohydrate-rich foods with CHD has been steadily strengthening. Refined carbohydrates, especially sugar-sweetened beverages, increase the risk of CHD. Conversely, whole grains and cereal fiber are protective. An extra one or 2 servings per day of these foods increases or decreases risk by approximately 10% to 20%.“.

In other words, the intake of the high amount of carbohydrate is associated with the increased risk of CVD.

Green bean is a genus of Phaseolus Sensu Stricto, containing 55 difference species, belong to the family Fabaceae and native to the New World tropics and grown in Europe for its attractive flowers and fleshy immature pods. It can be classified into two major groups, bush beans, and pole beans.

On finding a portent compound or the prevention of cardiovascular disease, researchers compared
the antithrombotic activity in participants in central Chile.

The study included extracts samples of 19 fruits and 26 vegetables of the local diet.prepared from each sample included an aqueous (juice or pressed solubles) and/or methanol-soluble fraction. 

According to the results of differentiation, green beans and tomatoes extracts inhibited the platelet aggregation induced by ADP and arachidonic acid, in a concentration-dependent manner.

However, green beans and tomatoes extracts showed a lesser effect comapred to the methanolic extracts of grapes on prolonged the prothrombin time (PT), diluted prothrombin time (dPT).

Moreover, extracts of raspberry are more effective in prolonged the activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), and fibrinolytic activity comapred to the green beans extracts.

Taken altogether, green beans used combined with tomato may be considered a remedy for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, pending to the confirmation of larger sample size and multicenter human study.
