I love the taste of millet, but it has amazing health benefits too. One of these is its ability to stop premature skin aging. Millet contains two powerful amino acids called Methionine and Lysine, both of which help your body create collagen. Collagen is the substance that keeps skin firm, stops sagging and helps fight wrinkles.
It keeps your digestive system healthy. If you suffer from digestive problems and constipation, adding millet to your diet can improve your digestive system.
Feeling tired lately? Millet can help you to relax. Millet contains the amino acid tryptophan which works as a natural relaxant. It can help you feel less stressed out during the day and help you sleep better at night. The relaxing properties of millet can also help reduce blood pressure, ward off tension headaches and reduce anxiety.

A good quality, organic millet is important to avoid the bitter taste some people associate with this grain. Try Organic Hulled Millet (3lb) by Anthony's - Gluten Free, Raw and USA Grown.
