Health Benefits 

Garbanzo beans, or chickpeas, as they are sometimes known, are one of the most powerful legumes on the market. They are a tremendous source of natural plant based protein which is important to help the body repair cell damage and build muscle. Garbanzo beans are also a great source of energy; they contain 57 grams of carbohydrates for every 100 grams of chickpeas. Ultimately, eating these wonderful beans helps to treat diabetes, maintain cardiovascular health, and improve digestion.
