INDIAN NATURAL FARMERS GROWN NATIVE SUPER FOOD AMARANTH (Amaranthus lineatus ) SEEDS .

Amaranth is an old cultivated crop originating on American continent. The Aztecs, Incas and Mayas considered amaranth as their staple food together with maize and beans. During the last century, it became increasingly popular among hill tribes in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Tibet, and China. The common names are  Rajgira ("Royal seed"), ramdana ("God’s own grain ")When and how amaranth arrived to Asia is a mystery. Indeed, many types of amaranth became indigenous to various regions around the world long ago. One theory is that the plant arrived to India roughly 500 years ago. Today, the plant is a staple for many groups in India—up to half of the region’s non-irrigated land is dedicated to amaranth’s growth.

Benefits of Amaranth :

Most conventional grains as wheat, rice and corn which are low in lysine, amaranth contains a balanced set of essential amino acids making it an unusually complete protein source among grains. Considering its high protein content.

However, due to its readily digestible starch, it has a high glycemic index. In addition, amaranth is relatively a good source of cholesterol-lowering soluble fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, vitamin A, C and several B vitamins.

It contains about four times as much calcium as wheat and twice as much iron and magnesium. Flavonoids (such as rutin and some phenolic acids as gallic acid, phydroxybenzoic acid and vanillic acid ) with antioxidant effects also occur in amaranth seeds and sprouts.

Amaranth is gluten-free and easy to digest.

Magnesium, present in Amaranth, acts as a relaxant for blood vessels and will lead to lower blood pressure and less ischemic heart disease. 

The oil present in the seeds also have a beneficial impact on hypertension and cardiovascular disease.
