Benefits of Canary Grass Seed
What is it?
Although many are familiar with canary grass seed as food for their bird pets, few know it to also be of great benefit for human consumption. Canary grass seed is one of the most powerful and nutritious seeds on earth because of its high content of enzymes, vegetable protein, amino acids, and antioxidants. Its antioxidant properties are very close to those found in Vitamin C. As for its protein content, 5 tablespoons of canary grass seed contain about 9 grams of protein. It is also contains many enzymes, of which lipase is the most abundant.
What are the benefits?
Because of its high enzymatic content, canary grass seed helps to reduce the inflammation of internal organs such as the liver, kidney and pancreas, which has proved to be of great help for people with diabetes and cirrhosis. In some cases, diabetes can be completely eliminated with the constant consumption of canary grass seed.
Canary grass seed is also helpful in weight reduction. Because lipase (essential enzyme in the digestion of fats) is the most abundant enzyme in this wonderful seed, it helps to clean veins and arteries from harmful fats, as well as getting rid of fat deposits in the body, leading to a reduction of obesity and cellulite.
The properties found in this seed also kill bacteria in the urinary tracts, thus reducing UTI’s, as well as kidney and gall bladder infections.
How can you eat it?
Canary grass seed loses all its properties when cooked. In order to obtain the full benefit of it, you must eat it raw. The most usual form of consumption is by making milk out of the seeds.

No other food should be eaten after drinking it at night.
