Fava beans are incredibly nutritious and an excellent source of soluble fiber, protein, folate, manganese, copper and several other micronutrients. They are loaded with magnesium and potassium that help relax blood vessels and decrease high blood pressure and have been shown to boost antioxidant activity.
