A tablespoon of chia seeds contains more calcium than a glass of milk, more Omega 3 than salmon and more anti-oxidants than blueberries! Chia seeds also contain lots of fibre, protein and micronutrients. And, as well as boosting energy, the nutrients have been proven to help heart health and joint function and encourage a healthy digestive system.
Despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat; rather buckwheat comes from the fruit of the buckwheat plant. Buckwheat lowers the risk of high cholesterol and blood pressure, due to a rich supply of flavonoids, especially rutin. These are phytonutrients that protect against disease by acting as antioxidants and in combination with magnesium relax vessels so improving blood flow and nutrient delivery. Traditionally, buckwheat is used in pancakes and noodles.
This is a lighter puffed style of the crunchy buckwheat seed above – with all the same nutritional benefits!
Millet contains high levels of copper, magnesium, phosphorus and manganese. These nutrients help with heart health and help lower blood pressure. This grain helps lower type 2 Diabetes and prevents gallstones as well.
