Benefits of millet for hair

Millet (botanical name Panicum miliaceum , L.) is an annual herbaceous plant that belongs to the Graminaceae family.

It is a cereal used mainly for human and animal nutrition, since, being rich in starch , it is a good source of energy for the body .

In addition to carbohydrates, millet provides a good protein intake (it contains about 11 grams of protein per 100 grams): like all cereals, millet is also poor in some essential amino acids, so it is recommended to consume it in association with legumes to improve assimilation of proteins .

Unlike wheat and other cereals, millet is gluten-free so its consumption is also suitable for people with celiac disease.

Millet also contains numerous minerals and vitamins , especially of the B group , which can help keep hair healthy ; in fact, it seems that the substances contained in millet can help to strengthen hair and prevent hair loss.

For this reason, millet is part of the composition of numerous food supplements whose intake is recommended in case of hair loss and thinning, thinning of the hair shaft and split ends.
