What are millets?

Millets have been grown in the Indian subcontinent for the past 5000 years. They are rain-fed, hardy grains which have low requirements of water and fertility when compared to other popular cereals.

Millets are highly nutritious, rich in fibre and gluten-free, making them easy for the body to absorb. They are rich in a huge spectrum of micronutrients, including calcium, iron and phosphorus.

Millets should be an integral part of your daily diet. They add variety and balance to your food. They can replace white rice in all your meals. You can start by mixing millets into rice. Many people have gained enormous benefits, especially in controlling weight and diabetes, by switching completely from a rice and wheat diet to a millet-based diet.

Benefits of millets

Reduce Blood Pressure

Millet is a rich source of magnesium, which is an important mineral for reducing blood pressure and the risk of heart attack or stroke, particularly in the case of atherosclerosis. Millet is also a great source of potassium, which further keeps blood pressure low by acting as a vasodilator.

Lower Cholesterol

The high fiber in millet makes it an ideal food for those who are trying to lower their cholesterol. Dietary fiber also helps to eliminate bad cholesterol (LDL cholesterol) from the system while promoting the effects of good cholesterol (HDL cholesterol).

Control Diabetes

Millets are recommended to diabetics as they are rich in fibre and have low GI. The high fiber content slows digestion and releases sugar into the bloodstream at a more even pace. This helps diabetics avoid dangerous spikes in blood sugar

Regulate Digestion

Millet regulates your digestive processes and helps improve nutrient retention. It can also reduce your chance of more serious gastrointestinal conditions like gastric ulcers. Regular digestion process helps optimize your kidney, liver, and immune system health, as those organ systems are closely related to the body’s metabolic activities.

Detoxify The Body

Millets are a rich source of phenols and antioxidants. Many of the antioxidants in millet can clean up toxins from your body. Quercetin, curcumin, ellagic acid, and various other beneficial catechins can help rid your system of any foreign agents and toxins by promoting proper excretion and neutralizing enzymatic activity in certain organs.

Manage Weight

When trying to lose weight, millet is viable a choice to a healthy weight reduction, as their calorie count is very low. Even for the people who are calorie conscious millet will help them maintain their energy levels throughout the day without constantly feeling famished.
