Many supporters of raw food diet often include amaranth in their diets. Its use benefits in several ways. This feeling of satiety, ease, weight correction, and very importantly, health improves, diseases that have not been exposed to medication for a long time disappear. Consider why this may occur, and what benefits can be derived from amaranth for raw food eating.
The indispensability of amaranth
Amaranth is considered to be a unique plant, possessing the necessary body substances in large quantities. So, it is known that the composition of amaranth is distinguished by an ideal protein – here 13-19% of proteins, which corresponds to the indicators of the theoretically calculated ideal protein. Moreover, 100 g of amaranth protein contains 6.2 g of lysine, an essential amino acid, and its amount in amaranth seeds is higher than in the grain of other plants. As you know, with a lack of lysine in the body, food is not absorbed. Due to the high protein content, amaranth seeds are indispensable in the diet of people who suffer from lactose intolerance, prefer a non-dairy diet, follow a vegetarian or raw food diet.
Amaranth is also valued for polyunsaturated fatty acids. It consists of linoleic, palmitic, stearic, oleic, arachidonic acid. There is also a large amount of riboflavin (vitamin B2), tocopherol (vitamin E), thiamine (vitamin B1), group D vitamins, chlorophyll, choline, bile acids and alcohols, steroids, phytosterols and squalene.
The latter component deserves special attention. Squalene is a substance that most resembles a cell of the human body, and without it, it is impossible to fully saturate organs and systems with oxygen. Thanks to squalene, amaranth is considered a powerful antioxidant, destroys cancer cells, prevents the formation of seals and tumors, and strengthens the immune system. As a result, the body becomes resistant to any infection and the harmful effects of the environment. Using amaranth, you can improve the function of the liver and gastrointestinal tract, the condition of the mucous membranes.
Amaranth not only strengthens the immune system and helps fight against diseases, but also comes to the aid of athletes. The fact is that the plant contains a large amount of magnesium, which is needed to prevent muscle spasms that occur during intense sports training. Thus, 60 grams of amaranth seeds contain 50% of the daily requirement for magnesium. If we take into account that medical preparations of magnesium have contraindications and side effects, the use of amaranth seeds, which are also well digested, will only be beneficial.
