ORGANIC RAGI WHOLE 01 KG
Finger millet, more commonly known as ragi or nachani, is a cereal widely grown in the African and Asian continents. Native to the Ethiopian highlands, this crop is quite easy to grow at altitudes higher than usual. The state of Karnataka is the highest producer of ragi in India,
Rich in calcium – No other cereal comes close to ragi when it comes to calcium content. Calcium is a significant factor when it comes to bone development and prevention of osteoporosis. Replacing calcium pills with a ragi kanji or porridge and including it in the diet of growing children is a good way to reap its benefits.
Helps in weight loss – The natural fat content in ragi is lower than all other cereals. Also, this fat is in its unsaturated form. Thus, substituting it for wheat and rice is a good choice for people trying to lose weight. It also contains an amino acid called Tryptophan which reduces appetite.
High fibre content – As compared to white rice, ragi contains higher amounts of dietary fibre. Due to this, ragi aids digestion, prevents over-eating and makes you feel full for a longer span of time. The amino acids Lecithin and Methionine help in decreasing the cholesterol levels of your body by getting rid of the excess fat in the liver. On the other hand, Threonine hinders the formation of fat in the liver and provides overall reduction of body cholesterol.
Aids diabetics – The high polyphenol and fibre content has another perk. Diabetic patients can trust ragi to create a restrained build in glucose level. Diets that regularly include ragi have been known to have lower glycemic response. This is mostly down to the inclusion of bran in ragi as the grain is too small to be polished and milled.
Battles anaemia – Ragi is an excellent source of natural iron. Patients of anaemia and low haemoglobin levels can begin to include ragi in their diets as a domestic remedy. Vitamin C is known to aid the absorption of iron. Once ragi is allowed to sprout, the vitamin C levels increase and lead to further absorption of iron into the bloodstream.
Natural relaxant – The ample amount of amino acids and antioxidants in ragi help the body relax naturally. Common ailments like anxiety, insomnia, headaches and depression can be battled with ragi. The amino acid called Tryptophan is a major contributor to the relaxing effects of ragi.
