Why you need quinoa?

VERY HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS

Antioxidants come up frequently in discussions about good health and preventing diseases. These powerful substances, which mostly come from the fresh fruits and vegetables we eat, prohibit (and in some cases even prevent), the oxidation of other molecules in the body.

VERY NUTRITIOUS

Not many foods can help keep your heart beating but quinoa has healthy amounts of potassium that regulate our most important muscle’s rhythms. Phosphorus is also plentiful which is a good thing since it is invaluable to bone and teeth formation. And speaking about bones, quinoa also has calcium.

GLUTEN FREE

It has become easier for anyone trying to live a gluten-free life since the internet has hundreds of reliable sites offering healthful information and easy quinoa recipes. And since quinoa is delicious at every meal, including breakfast, you can easily start the switch to a healthier diet.
