Many herbs in traditional and modern medicine contain saponins, which are generally responsible for the therapeutic properties they possess. Many saponins are known to exhibit biological activities such as antiviral, antidiabetic and cytotoxic activities, and these substances and plants containing them are becoming more and more attractive for pharmacological research purposes. Quinoa seed, which is one of the foodstuffs that shows the activities indicated by the various phenolic and antioxidant substances it contains and the phytochemicals in its composition, is one of the grain groups on which research has been conducted and the mechanisms of its effects are intended for clarification. This study aims to explain the effects of its consumption on health, by giving information about the chemical composition of quinoa seeds and by showing scientific data as an example.
