Buckwheat is a rich source of protein (one serving contains 13.2gr).
Protein (27% of the recommended daily allowances) required to maintain muscle mass.
It contains amino acids - lysine, tryptophan, threonine, phenylalanine and valine. It is a treasure of dietary fiber.
Sunflower seeds boast a hearty source of protein; just one serving delivers 6 grams of this important nutrient. They also contain essential fatty acids like oleic and linoleic acid, which have been linked to lowering blood sugar levels, reducing LDL "bad" cholesterol, and improving metabolism.
