Quinoa Health Benefits: 10 Good Reasons to Eat It


It’s a great alternative to traditional carbs, and is super easy to substitute into many recipes.  Here are Health Fitness Revolution’s favorite quinoa health benefits:

  •  It’s high in minerals like potassium, calcium and magnesium.
  • It has eight essential amino acids, so if you ate quinoa and nothing else (which we don’t recommend), your body could digest it and use it.
  • It’s high in vitamins A, C and E, which makes it a great antioxidant.
  • Quinoa also contains the important amino acid histidine, which is essential for human development and growth.
  • Quinoa is an excellent source of iron.
  • When you eat quinoa, you will use 90 percent of the good stuff being put into your body.
  • Quinoa is very low on the glycemic index, so when your kids eat it, it sustains them for longer.  It also means that it doesn’t cause a big spike in your blood sugar levels.
  • Quinoa is also a good source of fibre.
  • Quinoa is hypoallergenic, so it’s easy to add into any family’s diet. It’s gluten-free too!
  • This great seed is a complete protein.
