Our expert tip: Millet is a must for winter time! Unlike wheat or spelt, millet belongs to the sweet grasses and does not produce mucus. It is therefore an excellent source of energy for colds and respiratory diseases.
Millet should also be used for gastrointestinal problems because of its easy digestibility. Pumpkin warms you up from the inside which is perfect for the cold winter season. The seeds and oil also contain antioxidant substances that support the body’s defences. Furthermore, as a popular snack, the seeds have been proven to have a calming effect on an irritated bladder.
