Science and Research
Chemistry has shown evidence of buckwheat playing a role in reducing blood glucose levels. Buckwheat contains an active ingredient called
D-chiro-inositol is what is responsible for lowering blood sugar levels. The cholesterol-lowering effects of buckwheat have been explained in a research article published in the Journal of Nutrition.
This effect is due to the low digestibility of buckwheat protein as cholesterol binds to the protein and is excreted out of the body.
