Phaseolus vulgaris are a group of plants that produces various types of beans, including kidney beans, black beans, pinto beans, navy beans, and many others.

Phaseolus vulgaris beans and bean pods are a source of dietary fiber, protein, and carbohydrates. Fiber might help reduce how much cholesterol the body absorbs. Enzymes in Phaseolus vulgaris beans might also decrease how much starch the body absorbs.

People use Phaseolus vulgaris for obesity. It is also used for diabetes, colon cancer, high cholesterol, kidney stones, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

When taken by mouth: Phaseolus vulgaris bean extracts are possibly safe when used for up to 3 months. But eating large amounts of fresh Phaseolus vulgaris bean husks is possibly unsafe. Raw husks contain chemicals called lectins. These chemicals can cause stomach upset, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Cooking destroys these chemicals.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There isn't enough reliable information to know if Phaseolus vulgaris is safe to use when pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Medications for diabetes (Antidiabetes drugs)

Interaction Rating=Moderate Be cautious with this combination.

Phaseolus vulgaris might lower blood sugar levels. Taking Phaseolus vulgaris along with diabetes medications might cause blood sugar to drop too low. Monitor your blood sugar closely.

Herbs and supplements that might lower blood sugar: Phaseolus vulgaris might lower blood sugar. Taking it with other supplements with similar effects might lower blood sugar too much. Examples of supplements with this effect include aloe, bitter melon, cassia cinnamon, chromium, and prickly pear cactus.
Iron: Phaseolus vulgaris contains phytic acid. Phytic acid can reduce the amount of iron that the body absorbs from supplements.

Phaseolus vulgaris contains phytic acid, which can reduce the ability to absorb non-heme iron from foods. Non-heme iron is found in plant-based foods. But it's not clear if this is a big concern.

Phaseolus vulgaris extracts have most often been used by adults in doses of 800-1000 mg by mouth two or three times daily for up to 12 weeks. Speak with a healthcare provider to find out what dose might be best for a specific condition.
