Adzuki Beans Benefits (According to Ayurveda)

How Does This Ayurvedic Food Improve Wellness?

CLINICAL AYURVEDIC REVIEW

These small, red beans are powerhouses of nutrition and bursting with zinc, magnesium, iron and potassium. Their high iron content replenishes the blood for those with iron deficiency anaemia. Adzuki beef stew is especially blood building for women after menstruation. Their slightly yang nature confers strength and builds energy, supporting efficient function of the kidney and reproductive system. While many beans cool your metabolism, Adzuki is more neutral, leaving a pleasant warm feeling in your gut.

High fiber cleanses the small intestine of toxicity as it leads to bulkier stools and a more satisfying elimination the next morning. The high fiber also reduces cholesterol. Meanwhile, adzuki is slightly diuretic, flushing and cleansing the urinary tract and kidneys of toxic heat. They also assist in clearing blood stagnation and reducing swelling.

Beans contain saponins in order to protect themselves from insects. However, these saponins inhibit protein digestion, resulting in stagnation and production of gas in the bowels - a whole lot of discomfort. The good news is that Adzuki beans are less "musical" as compared to other kinds of beans, so you can consume them safely without fear of public embarassment! Individuals who are blessed with a robust digestive system should be able to digest beans without gas formation.

About Adzuki Beans

Adzuki beans are known to have originated in China where they are used extensively in traditional medicine. They are a staple in the macrobiotic diet and very popular in Japan, second only to the soybean in terms of consumption and popularity.

Buying & Preparation

Adzuki beans can be purchased dried, canned, powdered or in form of a paste. Traditional Ayurveda does not recommend consumption of canned foods. However, canned Adzuki beans are lighter on the system and easier to digest. Sprouted beans are even better in terms of ease in digestion.

Cooking Adzuki Beans

Adzuki beans take less time to cook than other beans. However, the best way to cook dried Adzuki beans is by way of soaking them overnight. Drain the water, rinse the beans and add fresh water for cooking. Place on the stove and bring to a boil in a pot with a lid. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer, keeping the lid slightly open. You can add a pinch of baking soda to soften the beans. Click here for more cooking tips.



Adzuki beans have a sweet, nutty flavor that makes them a popular ingredient in Asian dessert recipes. A common preparation is to boil Adzuki beans with sugar and mash them into a soft red bean paste, used as a filling in many desserts or pureed with coconut milk in adzuki ice-cream. Adzuki beans may also be fermented or sprouted for more savory preparations, and are often paired with seaweed (kombu) and fish in soups. The powder may be mixed into sticky rice preparations garnished with black sesame seeds.

INCREASES
Guna Help

Increases These Biocharacteristics (Gunas)

Functional Ayurveda helps you assess imbalances through 20 main biocharacteristics (gunas). Aggravating these characteristics weakens your body and causes imbalance. By knowing which characteristics are habitually imbalanced in your body, you will be able to identify and correct imbalances before you get sick. Every characteristic has an opposite which balances it (i.e. hot balances cold). You restore balance by favoring diet and lifestyle choices that increase the opposite characteristic.

TASTES
Taste Help

The 6 Tastes

Taste is used to sense the most basic properties and effects of food. Each taste has a specific medicinal effect on your body. Cravings for food with certain tastes indicate your body is craving specific medicinal results from food. Taste is experienced on the tongue and represents your body's reaction to foods. Sweet taste causes physical satisfaction and attraction whereas bitter taste causes discomfort and aversion. Kapha should use less sweet taste while Vata and Pitta would benefit from using more sweet taste. One of the first signs of illness is that your taste and appetite for food changes. The six tastes are sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, and astringent. Do you crave foods with any of the tastes below?

DOSHAS
Dosha Help

The Three Doshas / Body Types

According to the biocharacteristic theory of medicine, people tend to get sick, over and over again, due to habitual causes and imbalances that are unique to the person. Your body type summarizes this tendency, showing you the 'type' of conditions and imbalances that frequently challenge your health & wellness. Using body type, you can also identify remedies likely to improve your strength and resiliency. Your body type identifies physical and mental characteristics as well as your personal strengths and weaknesses. The calculation of your body type is based on your medical history.

The 3 functional body types (doshas), are Catabolic (Vata), Metabolic (Pitta), and Anabolic (Kapha). Catabolic individuals tend to break down body mass into energy. They are easily stimulated, hyperactive, underweight and dry. Metabolic individuals tend to burn or use energy. They tend to be rosy-cheeked, easily irritated, focused, driven, and easily inflamed. Anabolic individuals tend to store energy as body mass. If they store too much energy, they could gain weight easily and have congestion. Anabolic people tend to be stable and grounded.
