Looking for a hearty grain but want to avoid gluten? Look no further… the cereal grain Millet is packed with nutrients and is the perfect healthy substitute for rice and other grains. Eating a healthy well-rounded diet is one of the best ways to keep your body fit, your immune system strong, and to live a long and healthy life.
Known as an ancient grain, Millet is commonly grown in Asian and African countries and comes in many different shapes and sizes, similar to rice. Millet is known for its many health benefits including being able to help control blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol. Millet is also rich in antioxidants, phenolic compounds, ferulic acid and catechins, which all help keep your immune system strong, fight diseases and viruses, and aids in helping your skin heal from cuts and wounds. Millet also contains anti-inflammatory properties.
Millet is packed with vitamins and nutrients including phosphorus, magnesium, folate and iron. It also contains fiber, protein, and healthy fat. Millet is great for those sticking to a vegetarian or gluten free diet and it is easy to add into everyday meals. You should always talk to your doctor before changing your diet to make sure it is the best option for you.
