Health Benifits



1) It is a complete protein:
It is one of only a few plant foods that are considered a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids - these are the amino acids that our bodies cannot produce and, therefore, need to consume.This makes quinoa a great dietary choice for vegetarians and vegans.
2) High fiber:
The high fiber content of quinoa may help to improve blood sugar control.
Because of Quinoa's high fiber content compared with other grains, it helps reduce the risk of a number of health conditions.
These conditions include constipation, heart disease (by lowering blood pressure and reducing cholesterol), and hemorrhoids.
High-fiber diets have been shown to help improve blood sugar control. This can be beneficial for individuals with diabetes or prediabetes.

Also, diets rich in fiber tend to promote a healthy weight because fiber helps you feel fuller for longer, potentially reducing the overall intake of food.
3) Quinoa antioxidants:
Quinoa provides a higher amount of antioxidants than other common grains used in a gluten-free diet. Most gluten-free products consist of corn, rice, or potato flour and lack the nutrients that products incorporating quinoa can provide.
Researchers at Columbia University's Celiac Disease Center found that the nutritional content of gluten-free diets was significantly improved by adding oats or quinoa to meals and snacks.
There are new studies emerging on a regular basis confirming the health benefits of adequate whole grain intake and their antioxidant capacity.
4) Quinoa and manganese:
One cup of cooked quinoa contains almost one-third of the recommended daily allowance of manganese. Manganese is essential for development, metabolism, and the antioxidant system. This element is also vital for the proper functioning of many enzymes.
5) Quinoa iron content:
Iron is necessary for a range of processes in the human body. For instance, it is an essential component of hemoglobin, the compound that carries oxygen in our blood. Maintaining adequate levels of iron is essential for health.
6) Lysine:
Lysine is important for the synthesis of proteins. Although deficiency is rare, it can cause a range of medical issues because it is so widely used in the body. Quinoa contains more lysine than any other grain.
7) B-2 in quinoa:
One cup contains around 10 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin B-2 (riboflavin). B-2 is essential for the proper functioning of a range of enzymes.
There is some evidence that riboflavin might help reduce some types of migraine headache.
Although rare in Western countries, B-2 deficiency can cause oily skin rashes, anemia, and itchy, red, sensitive eyes.
8) Magnesium:
One cup of cooked quinoa contains almost one-third of the recommended daily allowance of magnesium. Magnesium is essential for the function of more than 300 enzymes; it is present in every cell of the body.Low levels of magnesium are associated with muscle spasms, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and migraines.
9) Quinoa contains quercetin and kaempferol:
Quercetin and kaempferol are flavonoids that are found in relatively high levels in quinoa. These antioxidants are thought to protect against a range of chronic diseases, including cancer.
10) Prevents kidney stones:
Quinoa has a potential protective effect against kidney stones. This is because quinoa helps manage potassium levels.
Quinoa in the diet 
  • Quinoa has a naturally bitter coating called saponin that keeps insects away without having to use pesticides. The saponin is easily removed by rinsing quinoa with water before consuming.
  • Although most packaged quinoas have the saponin already removed, it is never a bad idea to give it an extra rinse.
  • It is easy to incorporate quinoa into your diet - just use it in place of rice in any recipe. Its small grains cook to tender in as little as 15 minutes.
  • Quinoa has a subtle nutty taste that makes it a versatile ingredient in the kitchen. It can be used in baking or as a breakfast grain; it also works well in hot side dishes, cold salads, and even in burgers.
