It is also an excellent source of dietary fibre, minerals and high-quality protein. Amaranth contains all nine essential amino acids, including lysine. Among other things, your body uses lysine to form collagen, the main structural protein in your skin. Although further research is required, one study has shown that lysine may even help reduce stress levels.
