A seed with a powerhouse of nutrition, Quinoa has been traditionally cultivated for over 5000 years in the Andes mountains of South America. Because of this tiny grain's unique nutritional profile, it has done the unthinkable and made its way into the world of superfoods. Quinoa is the number one grain-based source of complete high-quality protein because it contains all of the essential amino acids. Don't let the protein content fool you, as this power-packed protein grain also has nourishing levels of fiber and essential minerals like magnesium, phosphorus, and iron.
Because of quinoa's complete nutritional content, NASA's controlled ecological support system has been experimenting with quinoa for long duration space flights.
Benefits of Organic Quinoa: A Nutritional Superfood
Hippocrates said, "Let food be thy medicine". Well, quinoa is a true traditional medicinal food. Because of its nourishing magnesium levels, quinoa may support blood vessel health via blood vessel relaxation. This, in turn, may support healthy circulation and a healthy cardiovascular system. Because research has shown the link between low fiber diets and a variety of health issues, quinoa is a superfood traditionally used in one's diet to support digestive, cardiovascular and lipid health. Being a low glycemic food, this super grain is also a traditional part of one's diet for supporting healthy blood sugar levels. Quinoa's high starch content makes it a demulcent food which may provide protective qualities to the digestive system and the skin as it was traditionally used to make poultices.
