It is now a well-proven fact that consuming whole grains on a regular basis may help lose weight, owing to the rich content of fiber and bioactive compounds in them.Like it’s millet cousins, proso millet is rich in protein and low glycemic index carbs.

The  high content of antioxidants and minerals like magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus, it helps in preventing conditions like osteoporosis. Millets are all a rich source of magnesium, a mineral which is extremely important for starch digestion.

Magnesium makes many carbohydrate-digesting enzymes, even the ones which manage insulin’s action.

Researchers find that magnesium-rich whole grain consumption can help lower the risk of type-2 diabetes.

In addition to this, due to the presence of complex carbs, the glucose release in the bloodstream is also well-regulated.
