QUINOA:

WHAT IS QUINOA?

 QUINOA is highly nutritious and very beneficial to a body. It is gluten-free and besides being used like many common grains, it can be ground into the powder form as well. It is very low in fat and can be added to diets as a healthy alternative to many other similar foods.

  Moreover, it is a pseudocereal. We cannot call it a traditional cereal. Why?

Because it is a crop that has been grown mainly for its edible seeds related to spinach and beetroots. 

Let’s discuss its AMAZING BENEFITS – 

 It reduces cancer risk. A recent study shows that eating a bowl of quinoa daily can reduce the risk of premature death by cancer. Quinoa is super rich in antioxidants, and can fight free radicals as well as other harmful substances that cause cancer.  

 

 It helps in strengthening digestive health. Quinoa is rich in fiber and that makes this point self-explanatory. Pretty much fiber adds bulk to the food churned in your stomach and this stimulates the walls of your digestive tract. This promotes better absorption of nutrients in the small intestine. 

 

  It prevents inflammation. The fiber in quinoa produces butyrate, an important fatty acid that turns off the inflammation, and the B vitamins in quinoa reduce homocysteine levels.  

 

 Its nutrients assist in the treatment of anemia as well. Quinoa is rich in iron and iron can help to prevent anemia. Another nutrient to look at in this aspect is riboflavin, which quinoa is rich in. Anemia can also be caused due to less riboflavin in one’s diet which also allows us to reiterate the importance of iron.  

 

 It works best during weight loss, if used appropriately. All your gym workouts and well-disciplined diets are great and adding quinoa can only make things better. Quinoa has a much higher insoluble fiber which according to studies helps to lose weight. 

 

  Quinoa is also rich in protein that serves as a building block for the bones and muscles. More importantly, it contains all the 9 essential amino acids that the body cannot produce on its own and is considered as a plus during muscle synthesis.
