Millet contains plenty of copper, manganese, magnesium, a variety of B vitamins, phosphorus, zinc, cystine, Isoleucine, leucine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, tyrosine, valine plus small amounts of many other powerful nutrients.
Besides all these nutrients found in millet that I had mentioned the other day, millet also contain lignans. They are converted by friendly flora in our intestines into mammalian lignans; including one called enterolactone that is said to help protect against breast & other hormone-dependent cancers & heart disease. (taken from THE WORLD’S HEALTHIEST FOODS”
There are so many reasons why we should include millet in our daily diet.
As your garden veggies become mature and ready to eat, enjoy them often, preserve extras and share with others who don’t have. We can’t even begin to imagine the nutritional power each one of these nutrients has on our health! Winnie
