4. Quinoa — Helps Build a Stronger Body
Quinoa is a significant source of Manganese, a trace mineral that our body uses in the production of connective tissue and bone. Because of this, quinoa is perfect for children who are growing, elderly people fighting bone density issues and anyone who is recovering from a sports injury. If your body needs a boost in absorbing calcium then quinoa is a great seed to add to your diet. Manganese is also used to create sex hormones and can help regulate the production of sex hormones. A one cup serving of quinoa contains 1.2 mg of manganese which equates to 58 percent of the daily intake for this important mineral.
