NOURISHING TIP

Millet is a gluten free grain that is loaded with benefits.  It is a rich source of magnesium and potassium, both helpful in treating dysmenorrhea (pain during menstruation).  Millet helps reduce the risk of diabetes as it is low on the glycemic index, can help promote weight loss because of its high fibre content, and fight aging because of its high antioxidant properties.  Millet also contains tryptophan, an amino acid that promotes relaxation and can help balance moods and prevent insomnia.
