What is buckwheat extract powder?
Buckwheat belongs to a group of foods commonly called pseudocereals.
Pseudocereals are seeds that are consumed as cereal grains but don’t grow on grasses. Other common pseudocereals include quinoa and amaranth.
Despite its name, buckwheat is not related to wheat and is thus gluten-free.
It’s used in buckwheat tea or processed into groats, flour, and noodles. The groats, used in much the same way as rice, are the main ingredient in many traditional European and Asian dishes.
Buckwheat has become popular as a health food due to its high mineral and antioxidant content. Its benefits may include improved blood sugar control.
Two types of buckwheat, common buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) and Tartary buckwheat (Fagopyrum tartaricum), are most widely grown for food.
Buckwheat is mainly harvested in the northern hemisphere, especially in Russia, Kazakhstan, China, and Central and Eastern Europe.
Benefits of buckwheat extract powder
Improved blood sugar control
Over time, high levels of blood sugar may lead to various chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes.
Thus, moderating the rise in blood sugar after meals is important for maintaining good health.
As a good source of fiber, buckwheat has a low to medium GI. This means that it should be safe to eat for most people with type 2 diabetes.
In fact, studies link buckwheat intake to lower blood sugar in people with diabetes.
This is supported by a study of rats with diabetes, in which buckwheat concentrate was shown to lower blood sugar levels by 12–19%.
This effect is thought to be due to the unique compound D-chiro-inositol. Studies indicate that this soluble carb makes cells more sensitive to insulin, the hormone that causes cells to absorb sugar from your blood
In addition, some components of buckwheat seem to prevent or delay the digestion of table sugar.
Overall, these properties make buckwheat a healthy choice for people with type 2 diabetes or those who want to improve their blood sugar balance.
Buckwheat may also promote heart health.
It boasts many heart-healthy compounds, such as rutin, magnesium, copper, fiber, and certain proteins.
Among cereals and pseudocereals, buckwheat is the richest source of rutin, an antioxidant that may have a number of benefits.
Rutin may cut your risk of heart disease by preventing the formation of blood clots and decreasing inflammation and blood pressure.
Buckwheat has also been found to improve your blood lipid profile. A poor profile is a well-known risk factor for heart disease.
A study in 850 Chinese adults linked buckwheat intake to lower blood pressure and an improved blood lipid profile, including lower levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol and higher levels of HDL (good) cholesterol.
This effect is believed to be caused by a type of protein that binds cholesterol in your digestive system, preventing its absorption into your bloodstream.
