POSHAN POORAK contains the following 3 varieties of important millets: Finger millet (Ragi), Browntop Millet (Korle), and Foxtail millet (Navane). Millets are rich in protein, resistant starch, soluble fibres, and vitamins and minerals. They also provide nutraceutical components such as phenols, tannins, and phytates, along with other nutrients.

These three millets are an excellent source of natural calcium that helps in strengthening bones for growing children, adults, and aging people. The regular consumption of millets is good for bone formation and health. Numerous studies have established the fact that phytates, polyphenols, and tannins in millets can contribute to antioxidant activity, which is an important factor in promoting health, and prevent aging and metabolic diseases.
Regular consumption of millets could help in preventing malnutrition and degenerative diseases and support the body's immune defense system.

Millets, with their low carbohydrate content, slow digestibility, and low water-soluble gum content, have been attributed to improving glucose metabolism. The grains release sugar slowly in the blood and slow down glucose absorption. The dietary fibre and resistant starch in minor millets exhibit hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects. Millets are also high in iron and are high in unsaturated fat (good fat), comprising majorly of the healthy polyunsaturated fatty acids.

The health benefits of millets include their ability to protect the heart, regulate the digestive system, detoxify the body, improve respiratory health, boost the immune system, increase energy levels, and improve the muscle and nerve health.

Millets are alkaline and they digest easily. Millets act as a prebiotic feeding the microflora in the guts. Millet is gluten-free and non-allergenic.
