It is rich in Vitamin B12, protein, good fat, carbs and dietary fibre content. Besides copious amounts of lysine, thiamine, iron and niacin, it also offers abundant amounts of calcium. Osteoporosis was first considered to be an age-related disorder characterized by low bone mass and increased bone fragility, thereby putting the patient at risk of fractures. Studies have reported an increased risk of developing osteoporosis in patients with various inflammatory conditions. Bound polyphenols of inner shell (BPIS) from foxtail millet bran can display anti-inflammatory effects Conclusion: Foxtail millet diet consumption will help in prevention of osteoclastic activity i.e. bone resorption process and may promote the activity of osteoblastic cells i.e. bone forming cells. It can promote anti-inflammatory effect. But according to Ayurveda, its consumption should be limited to once a day to prevent vitiation of Vata Dosha.
