One cup of cooked bulgur provides 5.6 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber. Bulgur is rich in B-vitamins and very high in many minerals including iron, phosphorus, zinc, selenium, and magnesium.
B-vitamins are essential in prevention and treatment of many conditions. B-vitamins aid in metabolism, brain function, and boosting our immune system to help fight disease.

Selenium is important in protecting the heart and immune system.
Iron – Iron is an important mineral that helps transport oxygen flow throughout the body. It is an essential component of hemoglobin, which is present in red blood cells and carries oxygen from the lungs to various parts of the body, maintaining healthy nails, hair, skin and cells.
Zinc is among the most important minerals in the body, right up there with calcium and magnesium, since it plays an important role in many cellular functions.
