Buckwheat is high in magnesium, a mineral that helps support bone health and may also support energy levels. It is also a good source of fibre, which supports a healthy digestive system. This fibre, together with the high protein content of buckwheat, can help improve blood sugar control, and weight loss as it helps to keep you fuller for longer. Buckwheat also contains some micronutrients that support good health, including B vitamins, iron and zinc, but also a phytonutrient called rutin which research has shown to help reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes. It is also a good source of manganese which helps make and activate some of the enzymes in the body, including those we need to break down food, as well as copper which helps with the production of red and white blood cells.
