This Muscle-Building Carb Is Packed With Protein


Quinoa has grown popular the last few years as more people are searching for a healthy gluten-free carb source they can pair with their low-fat protein. Compared to wheat, quinoa is low-glycemic and packed with protein.

Scientist have recently discovered that it is also loaded with ecdysteroids, a naturally occurring steroid found in plants and insects (and for which humans weirdly have a receptor for). Research is still being conducted on what type of benefits ecdysteroids offer humans, but experts believe that besides several health-promoting properties (lowering blood glucose and cholesterol), ecdysteroids can also improve muscle mass and body composition by increasing protein synthesis.

Best of all, just a couple ounces of quinoa contain even more of this mysterious muscle-builder than some ecdysteroid supplements do.
