Mung-tein™ protein contains all the benefits of raw mung beans (also known as green gram). As one of the best plant sources of protein, they are also a great source of amino acids including leucine, isoleucine, and valine (the BCAAs). These healthy legumes are packed with antioxidants, plant protein, B-vitamins, and minerals including magnesium, iron, copper, potassium, and zinc. Mung beans may even help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol which can have a significant impact on your risk of heart disease. The potassium and manganese content may be good for blood pressure, too.
