"apilste" aka canary seed
Yes the same seed they feed birds is one of the worlds strongest seeds and can be benificial for humans...
I've been searching the internet not finding much about the health benefits of canary seed for humans(in ENGLISH)....but in spanish I found this
and a video on youtube again in spanish
This really caught my attention since supposedly a glass of canary seed milk has MORE PROTEIN than 2-3kg of red meat. This sounds to me like the solution to any aspiring vegan bodybuilder... but after reading more about it, it seems the health benefits are much greater than that. For those who dont do spanish i'll try to sum up the gist of these sources......
-the aminos in "alpiste" are more readily available than in meat since it is raw and the enzymes stay alive
-it is a great muscle anti-inflamatory
-helps clean the pancreas(helping fight diabetes),kidneys, and liver(helps fight pscirossis)
-it's a natural diuretic (fights hypertension)
-contains the digestive enzyme Lipase which is needed to digest fat (acting as a natural fat burner)
FYI (on another topic this got me curious as to what enzymes do WHAT and found that
Protease breaks down protein
Amylase breaks down carbohydrates &
Lipase breaks down fat)
So...it recommends you soak 5 tbsp of seed overnight...drain the water...put in blender with 3-4 cups of water and blend on high....much like making soy milk or almond milk....
Has anyone else heard of this?
Im going to give it a try(the canary seed milk) since it seems to be so highly regarded....
