Quinoa means "mother grain" in the Inca language. This ancient seed is a versatile, “complete” protein whole grain with all 9 essential amino acids necessary for human growth and development. Most other grains are deficient in 1 or more essential amino acids. Quinoa also contains more protein than any other grain. It was such an important source of nutrients during the Inca civilization that the Incas considered the staple crop sacred. Quinoa is now widely known as one of the healthiest foods on planet earth (contains a balanced profile of amino acids, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, fibre, antioxidants, and phytonutrients).

Quinoa Seed has higher nutrients than most grains.
1. Anti-inflammatory properties - Reduces risks of cardiovascular disease including atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes. Preliminary animal studies have also shown that daily quinoa intake is able to lower levels of inflammation in fat (adipose) tissue (associated with obesity), and also lower total cholesterol.
2. Improves migraine as well as hypertension conditions - Quinoa is a good source of magnesium which help relax blood vessels and lower blood pressure. Migraine sufferers are also advised to stay away from artificial sweeteners (like aspartame) and foods containing additives (like MSG).
3. Improves the digestive system - Quinoa is high in dietary, colon-cleansing fibre. Reduces risk of getting gallstones.
4. Supports weight loss efforts - Being a low-carb, high-protein whole grain, Quinoa makes you stay full longer on fewer calories. A typical serving (for 1 person) will be about 60-80 grams (uncooked weight) and you will feel full and satisfied. The low glycemic index (GI) and the high quality protein content (with all 9 essential amino acids), makes quinoa an excellent choice food for bodybuilders, who want to cut down fat while developing lean muscle.
Quinoa is a good source of complete protein with all 9 essential amino acids and contains vitamin B1, B2 (riboflavin), B6 and folic acid. It is high in dietary fiber, iron, phosphorus and many other phytonutrients.

Quinoa is also a good source of phosphorous, calcium, iron, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin E and several of the B vitamins. Quinoa also has six times the amount of iron and calcium of corn and 20 times more iron than rice.
