Amaranth is a great grain for physically active individuals as it boasts 5 grams of high quality protein in only half a cup. Amaranth is also high in iron and vitamin C which helps oxygenate the muscles to fuel your cardiovascular workouts and reduce fatigue. Amaranth is rich in magnesium, which helps to relax blood flow and aid in post-workout recovery. This grain also contains zinc, calcium, potassium and phosphorous to support a strong immune system, healthy blood pressure and strong bones. Lastly, Amaranth is gluten-free and a great choice for those with celiac disease or a wheat allergy.
