Shorghum Health Benefits:
Sorghum is one of the best sources for dietary fiber, with a single serving providing more than 40% of the recommended daily requirement of fiber. This helps to move your food along the digestive tract and prevents cramps, bloating, flatulence and gas. Moreover high amounts of dietary fiber also scrape off the LDL (bad cholesterol), thus improving heart health.
Sorghum is a good source of essential minerals like copper, iron, magnesium and calcium which increases the uptake of iron in the blood. This decreases the occurrence of anemia and improves RBC development in the body. A diet containing sorghum improves the blood circulation and stimulates cellular growth and development.
Sorghum does not contain gluten, a protein that is not digested by people suffering from celiac disease. Gluten is found in wheat, barley, and rye, along with numerous items made from these food grains, thus making it impossible for the celiac patients to consume these items. Sorghum provides a safe alternative to these patients without causing the symptoms of the celiac disease like nausea, inflammation, gastrointestinal disorders etc.
