Lentils and other legumes are a good dietary source of copper, a trace mineral that may help lower blood cholesterol. * The iron in lentils is more easily absorbed by the body if you cook or serve the lentils with a food rich in vitamin C, such as tomatoes, capsicums, cabbage, broccoli or citrus juice.
