Peas have a high content of potassium and phosphorus, which play a significant role in regulating the processes of the cardiovascular and nervous systems. This legume has a high content of B group vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6), as well as vitamins C, K, A and E. In addition, peas are rich in trace elements such as sodium, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc and selenium. All these vitamins and nutrients often play an essential role in many key processes in the body and support its regular function. Keep in mind that along with peas, a number of valuable acids enter the body, such as: glutamine - the most important element for brain function, or pantothenic acid, which is necessary for regulating metabolism and providing synthesis of cholesterol, hemoglobin and histamine, as well as the folic acid, which significance is observed in its participation in the formation of red blood cells and contribution to the normalization of blood formation.
The use of peas has a beneficial effect on the human cardiovascular system, and, above all, it is recommended to people suffering from hypertension, because the high content of potassium, magnesium and calcium helps maintain normal blood pressure. Dietary fiber helps to normalize cholesterol levels, reducing the risk of arteriosclerosis.
