Buckwheat Health and Skin Benefits

Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculent) is a plant primarily cultivated for its grain-like seeds, and also utilized as a cover crop. Regardless of the name, buckwheat is not at all related to wheat because it isn’t grass. However, buckwheat is related to knotweed, sorrel, and rhubarb.

Nutritious and energizing buckwheat can be used as an alternative to white rice and one should definitely consider including it in the meal plan for a healthy eating and weight loss. Buckwheat is rich in manganese, copper, magnesium, phosphorus as well as fiber.

Buckwheat is gluten free, so it can be an excellent substitute for rye, wheat, oats and barley. Therefore it is also considered extremely suitable for those who are allergic to wheat.

The several buckwheat benefits can be attributed to its fantastic nutritional profile. Let’s have a look at the amazing health and skin benefits buckwheat provides when included in our diet:
