What are sprouts and what are their benefits?

  • Sprouts are seeds that have germinated and become very young plants.

  • Sunflower sprouts help those with diabetes.

  • Sprouts have 100 times more enzymes than the enzyme content in fruits and vegetables which helps our body to replenish its reserve of enzymes. Enzymes are the spark of life. They are responsible for all the metabolic processes in the body. Enzymes help the immune system. Enzymes has a positive effect on degenerative and cardiovascular diseases.

  • Contain highly active antioxidants to prevent DNA destructions and the effects of aging.

  • Sprouts have up to 300% more fibre. 

  • This germination process usually begins with the seeds being soaked for several hours.

  • The soaked seeds are then exposed to the right combination of temperature and moisture, and allowed to grow for two to seven days.

  • There are a lot of different types of sprouts, such as bean, sunflower, wheat, barley, cabbage, lentils, broccoli, alfalfa, etc. 

  • The main reason for eating sprouts is about nutrition and digestion. It's essentially about getting the most benefit out of a plant in the most biologically concentrated form.

  • Sprouts have the highest amount of nutrition, highest amount of essential fatty acids, and highest amount of "medicine" called phytochemicals.

  • Broccoli sprouts are 50 times more effective at fighting cancer.

  • Teff, quinoa, millet, amaranth, and buckwheat are grains that have high protein levels. These are used for energy.

  • Mungbean sprouts are high with zinc.

  • Adzuki helps water-based organ problems.

  • Fenugreek is a healing sprout. It helps gastrointestinal problems like diverticulitis and Crohn’s. It also helps diabetes.

  • Sprouts are 10 to 30 times more nutritious than fruit and vegetables. 

  • The University of Vienna has done research on how sprouts increase electrical conductivity between capillaries and cells.

Why Sprouts?

  1. Economics – Anyone can afford this. The yield is huge compared to cost.

  2. Nutrition – Among the most nutritious food in the world.

  3. Organic – You know this is organic.

  4. Availability – It is always available no matter the location or season.

  5. Space-time – It takes very little space and very little time to maintain.

  6. Freshness – You cannot get much fresher.

  7. Digestibility – It is pre-digested.

  8. Versatility – There are lots of different varieties to choose from.

  9. Meals – You can get a complete meal.

  10. Ecology – You are helping the environment.
