Pulseeds care for your heart

Eating pulses reduce serum cholesterol levels, and reduce risks of coronary artery disease, obesity, diabetes, and hypertension. Coronary artery disease is one of the most prevalent causes of death. A consistent and regular intake of pulses, which contain a high amount of fiber, will decrease serum cholesterol levels, therefore decrease the risk of getting coronary artery disease. Pulses contain phytochemicals which lower serum cholesterol levels, by inhibiting either cholesterol absorption, or bile acid reabsorption.  The ingestion of pulses is necessary for great heart health.
