The seeds of whole grains have three distinctive components called the endosperm, germ and bran. When these are intact, whole grains offer you higher nutrient value. Carbohydrates are known as macronutrients, which the body needs in high amounts. They function to give you energy and support the brain and nervous system. Complex carbs, gained from whole grain products, are digested at a slow pace and give you lasting energy levels. Fiber is a nondigestible form of carbohydrate that brings numerous benefits to the body. It prevents constipation and reduces the risk of developing intestinal conditions. Whole-grain pasta generally has at least 5 grams of fiber per serving. Whole-grain pasta has more than twice the protein than regular. Protein helps repair cells and tissue, rebuilds muscle and strengthens hair, nails and skin. Whole-grain pasta contains generous amounts of phosphorus, manganese, magnesium and selenium minerals. Phosphorus helps with energy production, reduces muscle soreness from intense workouts and aids cell and tissue repair. Manganese helps with sex hormone production, blood clotting and it also contributes to strong connective tissue. Magnesium is essential for heart rhythm, strong bones, nerve function and blood sugar regulation. Selenium is an antioxidant that boosts immunity and promotes thyroid function. Iron is important for oxygen transportation to the muscles and rest of the body. It gives you the ability to do daily functions optimally. Iron also helps with immune function and neurotransmitter production in the brain. Whole-grain spaghetti has 8 percent of the recommended daily value in 2 ounces. Add lean meat to your pasta and pair it with a spinach salad for high natural iron intake.
