It is grown for its long, green pods, which can be cooked as a vegetable, or for the dry seeds, which can be used as a pulse. Cowpea beans help to keep cholesterol levels in check and blood cholesterol under control. They deal with stomach and pancreatic issues, as well as urinary and bowel issues. They help with weight loss, as well as skin and hair health.
