There has been extensive research done on buckwheat, from its composition to the health benefits it may offer, we now know a great deal about this emerging superfood. Buckwheat grain contains many nutrients, including protein, lipids, dietary fiber, and a wide array of vitamins and minerals. The most prominent vitamins and minerals found in buckwheat are manganese, copper, magnesium, iron, and phosphorus. These nutrients are important for ensuring your body functions normally and at optimum health.
About 20% of women and 3% of men do not consume enough iron in their diet. Both iron and copper work together to produce red blood cells and help maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. Without enough iron, it is possible to develop an iron deficiency and anemia, a condition which leads to weakness, dizziness, and body aches. Buckwheat also contains Magnesium, another essential nutrient for maintaining cardiovascular health and warding off heart disease.
Buckwheat is rich in two particularly important nutrients, phosphorus and manganese. Both of these essential minerals play an important role in the growth and maintenance of bones and tissues. Manganese also plays a strong role in metabolism and regulating blood glucose levels. Studies have suggested that manganese may influence your susceptibility towards type 2 diabetes and osteoporosis.

These nutrients are broken down and used to make many structures in your body, such as tissues, bones, and cartilage. Fiber is another nutrient prominent in buckwheat.
