Eggplant:- Is heart Health
Eggplants contain fiber, potassium, vitamin C and B6. These are all known to help lower the risk of mortality from heart disease. Studies have shown that eating these lead to lower rates of heart disease even in smaller quantities. A recent study showed that people who eat vegetables such as eggplant containing these nutrients have a 34% lower risk of contracting heart disease than those who do not. Eggplant also contains vitamin K which is necessary for blood clotting and helps prevent calcification of the arteries which prevents dangerous plaque deposits which may cause blockages.
It help lower the blood pressure:-
Eggplants contain a red-blue flavonoid plant pigment called anthocyanin which has been found to help with dropping blood pressure significantly. Lower blood pressure is known to lower the risk of stroke, heart attacks and blood clots. Eggplant also contains vitamin E which is good for treating and preventing chest pain, blocked or hardened arteries and high blood pressure.
Prevent some type of cancers:–
Research has shown that eggplants contain polyphenols which are known for their anti-cancer properties. Eggplants have anthocyanins and chlorogenic acid which are antioxidants.
