I used to have high cholesterol and sugar, and my doctor told me I should lessen my rice consumption even though I had an active lifestyle and go to the gym regularly. I tried buckwheat as an alternative to rice for one month, and during my regular check-ups, my my sugar and cholesterol went down. It goes without saying that Kasha Buckwheat is good for blood sugar control and heart health. I feel healthy, stronger, and more energetic now that buckwheat is part of my meals. I’m never going back to rice.
