    What is Mung Bean

    A small but powerful legume, Mung Beans are an excellent source of plant-based protein, making them an incredibly filling complex carb. They provide plenty of Iron, Calcium, B-Vitamins, Copper, Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc, all of which contribute to health benefits such as providing energy and supporting mental performance

    Mung Beans contain phytoestrogens, a naturally occurring compound in plants that has a similar structure to oestrogen. Symptoms of menopause are associated with hormonal imbalances and the declining levels of oestrogen and female hormones during menopause. Phytoestrogens in foods like Mung Bean bind to the body’s oestrogen receptors, helping to regulate and balance hormone levels as they decline, and thereby helping provide provide relief from symptoms of menopause including hot flushes and mood swings.
