A Natural Food to Help Beat “The 3 Deadly HIGHs” – HIGH Blood Pressure, HIGH Blood Sugar & HIGH Triglyceride Levels!
In general, there are two types of buckwheat, the common buckwheat ( Fagopyrium Esculentum Moench) and the Tartary Buckwheat (Fagopyrium Tataricum Gartner). Tartary Buckwheat is also known as ‘Golden Buckwheat’.
Golden Buckwheat is touted as the ‘King of Cereals’ and in recent years has gained much attention from nutritionists and medical doctors, because of its high nutritional content. In Korea it is known as the ‘Food for Fairies’, in Japan as ‘Longevity Buckwheat’ while in Germany it is called ‘Oriental God’s Herb’. Buckwheat is naturally low in fat and high in protein, fibre and minerals such as potassium, magnesium and calcium. Tartary Buckwheat is also rich in rutin, quercetin and other nutrients that are good for health.
Rutin or Vitamin P is unique to Buckwheat and Golden Buckwheat has 5 times more of it than common buckwheat. Rutin is a natural antioxidant with powerful properties that can help neutralise free radicals that may cause damage to the body. Rutin can help to prevent colon cancer and act as an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and tumour inhibitor.
Recent studies have shown that rutin may provide the health benefits listed below:
1 ) Inhibits Platelet Aggregation
Rutin can inhibit the activity of phosphodiesterase to prevent platelet aggregation. It helps to thin the blood and improve blood circulation. It also protects platelets from oxidation thus helping high blood pressure patients to achieve and maintain a healthy blood pressure.
2 ) Strengthens & Improves Blood Vessels
Rutin inhibits the activity of Lipoxygenase & Prostaglandin synthesis enzyme to prevent the weakening of blood vessels, especially the capillaries. At the same time, it also expands blood vessels to reduce the risk of bruising, NF tumours and haemorrhoids. It can also help to lower blood pressure and triglycerides and prevent strokes.
3 ) Prevents Diabetic Complications
Aldose Reductase is an enzyme found in the eyes and other parts of the body. It can help to convert glucose into sorbitol (sugar alcohol). Excessive sorbitol that accumulates around the eyes and nerve cells can cause retinopathy and neuropathy (severe eye & nerve problems which often happen to diabetes patients). Studies also showed that flavonoids (including rutin) can help to prevent and inhibit Aldose Reductase activity to prevent or delay the risk of diabetic complications.
4 ) Maintains Skin Youthfulness
Rutin helps the body to absorb and utilise vitamin C. This can help to prevent cells from free radical damage and to maintain collagen levels which results in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Golden Tartary Buckwheat contains more soluble fibre than other grains. It has 4 times more soluble fibre than paddy, 2.7 times more than wheat, 1.1 times more than corn and 1.6 times more than common buckwheat. Dietary fibre fills you up and provides a sense of fullness which can help to prevent overeating for successful weight loss. It also promotes healthy bowel movement easing constipation and eliminating toxic build-up in the gastrointestinal system.
Soluble fibre can help to reduce the accumulation of bile juice which helps to prevent gallstone formation. The American Journal of Gastroenterology reported that consuming high amounts of dietary fibre can reduce the risk of gallstones! Glucan-based dietary fibre may also help to prevent sugar spikes after meals (good for preventing diabetes). Dietary fibre can also help to control the body’s cholesterol levels.
One more unique nutrient found in Golden Buckwheat – D-Chiro-Inositol, plays a similar role to insulin in reducing blood sugar levels effectively.
