Let's talk about microgreens
What are they?
They’re tiny greens grown from vegetable and herb seeds that are harvested when they are somewhere in size between a sprout and a baby green. you are basically eating the seedling before it becomes the mature plant. Examples are sunflowers, pea shoots, cabbage, kale, radish, broccoli, cilantro and fennel. Researchers are discovering that when you eat the plant in this stage of growth you get 10 to 40 times the vital nutrients than thier mature counterparts! And because microgreens are eaten in their raw state there is no nutrient loss.
What's their Nutritional Value?
According to Dr. Ann Wigmore pioneer and founder of the 'living foods' movement microgreens are one of the most concentrated but natural sources of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids (proteins) known. They are full of vitamins and minerals! While the nutrient content varies slightly from plant to plant most varieties tend to be rich in potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium and copper and vitamins A, K and C. They are also very high in age fighting antioxidants. According to Anthony William Medical Medium they are great for gut health-because they contain elevated biotics and brain health-because they are high in specific mineral salts that are involved with neurotransmitter chemical production.
