Are you looking for a way to improve your health and well-being?
Look no further than sprouts!
Sprouts are a super food packed with essential vitamins and minerals. They can help you feel your best so you can live the life you want and do all the things you love.
Sprouts are a type of vegetable that are harvested from the seeds of various plants. They are easy to grow year-round in your kitchen and ready to harvest in 5-8 days.
Gayle and I eat them raw most of the time, but they can be cooked. Sprouts have many health benefits.
Let’s explore a few of them.
Sprouts are a great source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Each type of sprout brings different types of nutrients to your diet, but, in general, here is what you can expect. They are rich in Vitamins A, C, K, zinc, sulforaphane, protein, omega 3 fatty acids, phosphorus, iron, Iodine, selenium, copper, magnesium, manganese, fiber, chlorophyll, Vitamin E, Vitamin B complex, calcium and potassium.
Whoa! Just think how much money you will save in supplements.
Sprouts protect you from free radical damage. They are a great source of antioxidants, which can help protect the body from damage caused by free radicals.
Sprouts improve digestion. The fiber content of sprouts can help improve digestion and reduce the risk of certain diseases. In addition, sprouts add elevated biotics. Elevated biotics are microscopic life-giving organisms that cover the above-ground surfaces (leaves and skins of vegetables and fruits) of raw, unwashed (or lightly rinsed) organic produce. The elevated probiotics can make a difference in your digestion. Unlike factory-produced probiotics and soil-borne organisms, elevated biotics are able to survive your digestive process. Sprouts bring those to your table.
Sprouts help in the prevention of disease. Sprouts can also help boost the immune system. They are high in Vitamins A and C, which can help fight off infections and boost immunity. Additionally, sprouts contain compounds that can help reduce inflammation, which can help reduce the risk of certain diseases.
Sprouts are a Protein Source. Sprouts are a great source of plant-based proteins, which can help build and repair muscle.
Sprouts are a cancer fighting powerhouse. Sulforaphane is a chemical compound found almost exclusively in cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, kale, cauliflower and broccoli. Many studies have shown a strong correlation between the intake of sulforaphane-rich foods and a significantly reduced risk of many forms of cancer, including breast cancer. Broccoli is a rich source of sulforaphane, but broccoli sprouts contain 100x the amount contained in mature broccoli. Adding these sprouts to your diet is a positive step toward preventing cancer.
Sprouts are a great source of nutrition and are a wonderful way to add flavor and texture to any dish. We like to toss them in our salads, but you could also add them to sandwiches. These super foods can easily be added to any meal for a boost of vitamins and minerals!
So don’t wait – add them to your grocery list (or grow them in your kitchen) and start reaping the health benefits of sprouts! You’ll be glad you did!
