      Millet

      The millet is a cereal which has its origins in central- oriental Asia, cultivated by the ancient Egytians and still very diffused in Africa, since it grows on poor grounds, it needs little water and little dung. Furthermore this cereal can be conserved for a long time. In Europe the millet for human alimentation is available in macrobiotic shops, while it’s used especially as animal food for birds and chicken. This cereal contains no glutin and is recommended for people who suffer from an acid stomac, thanks to its alcaline properties.

      Moreover it has diuretic and energizing qualities. The cultivation of millet in Europe was abandoned because of the importation of corn from America. In phytotherapy millet is recommended to combat stress, anxious states, depression, anemia and intelectuel tiredness. Therefor it’s particularly recommended for students. Its taste is sweet and delicate, this cereal contains more mineral salts than the common cereals. Some of its precious ingredients are: silicium, iron, phosphor, magnesium, fluor, vitamin A and vitamins of the B group. Silicium has a beneficial effect on the nails, teeth, hair etc. In the Orient where the millet belongs to the daily alimentation the women have healthy, brillant and strong hair.
