Iron-Wealthy Weight loss plan: 5 Bajra Recipes That Might Assist Fight Anaemia
If you’ve tried Rajasthani cuisine, you surely know how delicious Bajra Khichdi tastes. Tasty khichdhi made from bajra, moong dal etc and topped with tons of ghee – it only defines comfort. Likewise, there are several other Bajra-based dishes that will help you put together a calming meal at any time of the day. Take Bajra Roti or Maharashtrian Bhakri, for example. Each of these dishes are popular not only for their unique taste and texture, but also known for their health benefits. Bajra is a nutrient store. It’s loaded with protein, fiber, complex carbohydrates, and more. Plus, it’s also gluten-free, which makes it ideal for those who prefer to avoid wheat in their diet (or those who have celiac disease). According to nutritionist Rupali Datta, “Bajra helps promote weight loss, support bowel health, treat diabetes, and more.”
Health Benefits of Bajra: Bajra is an iron store:
Did you know that Bajra can also help fight anemia? Yes, you heard us. A recent study published in the journal Frontiers in Nutrition showed that consuming millet daily can help improve hemoglobin levels and further reduce problems related to iron deficiency, including anemia.
The researchers analyzed “22 human studies and eight laboratory studies on millet consumption and anemia,” according to an ANI report. Millet has been found to provide all or most of the “average person’s daily iron needs”. However, the researchers found that the amount of iron can vary depending on the type of millet you consume.
On the iron content of Bajra, Rupali Datta said: “Bajra provides a modest amount of iron, which is important for controlling hemoglobin levels in the body and preventing weakness (due to anemia).”
