Buckwheat flour has a good high potassium level which is associated with; a reduced risk of stroke, lower blood pressure, protection against loss of muscle mass, preservation of bone mineral density, and reduction in the formation of kidney stones. Diabetes and alcoholism can cause levels of phosphorus in the body to fall. The same is true of conditions that make it hard for people to absorb nutrients, such as Crohn disease and coeliac disease, so this type of flour is very useful in those circumstances/
