Panchdhatu atta from Omdhatu is one of the most extensively researched products in the market. It is a combination of the 5 most healthy Millets and in such a proportion that it gives maximum health benefits. First, let us know a little bit more about Millets.
Why did Omdhatu Ayurveda launch Panchdhatu Atta?
Millets have been a staple food of the Indian Subcontinent for thousands of years and were one of the major grains produced in India. As mentioned in the oldest Yajurveda texts, millets date back to the Indian Bronze Age (around 4500 BC). With the increase of Western Influence, millets were slowly replaced with much less beneficial and more addictive grains like Wheat and Rice. In this article, we will see how this change in lifestyle and inclination toward western habits completely ruined our health and the cost of forgetting our roots and discarding millets completely from our diet.
Why you should stop consuming wheat flour?

hypertension is very common among all age groups. These health issues are directly or indirectly related to our lifestyle and change in our eating habits in the last 50-100 years. Below mentioned are some serious health issues wheat can cause- 1. Wheat can make your Diabetes worse
