Medicinal Benefits of the Pea and Bean Family


The Bean family is the second most important economic group in the world after the Grass or Poaceae family. It is rich in a variety of phytochemicals that help treat all manner of health conditions.

The tale of Jack and the Beanstalk is of certain significance. The idea that a bean can be the portal to a magical world is common in popular culture. No surprise there! Rolling in the clover conjures up for many people, sweet, delightful memories. This family is large and varied, containing various beans and peas, but other delights like licorice, alfalfa, caragana, and vetches.

We’re like licorice. Not everybody likes licorice, but the people who like licorice really like licorice. JERRY GARCIA

A writer is like a bean plant—he has his little day and then gets stringy. E. B. WHITE

Nature also forges man, Now a gold man, Now a silver man, Now a fig man, Now a bean man. PARACELSUS

Creamy bean flowers with black eyes and leaves like bored hearts. 
Is it blood clots the tendrils are dragging up that string?
 No, no, it is scarlet flowers that will one day be edible. SYLVIA PLATH
