It has very important antioxidant and digestive properties that make it a perfect ally for the health of our body. It favors the assimilation of nutrients – such as vitamins and minerals – by stimulating the secretion of enzymes in the pancreas. In addition, it helps to effectively combat the formation of intestinal gas, thus preventing the annoying swollen belly. Thanks to the flavonoids it has effective antioxidant action and is also rich in iron, vitamins and mineral salts including calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus.
