Microgreens are highly nutritious and can be grown affordably and easily in your kitchen!
Here is a list of amazing benefits that make these microgreens a superfood-
- Microgreens have higher amounts of enzymes and nutrition than mature fruits and vegetables that we consume. These aid in circulating bodily functions and digestion. They also support breakdown and release vitamins, minerals, amino acids and essential fatty acids from the foods you eat.
Microgreens are also a source of vitamins, including A, B1, B2, B6, C, K and minerals such as copper, iron, manganese, phosphorus and potassium. They also contribute to the alkalinity, which directly helps the human body to prevent chronic diseases.
- In addition to being high in vitamins and minerals, microgreens are also rich in protein and fiber. Fiber essentially leads fat and toxins out of the body. This is not only an important process for weight loss, but also for detoxification.
- Several studies show that microgreens contain higher concentrations of vitamins and carotenoids than the mature plants. They are rich in antioxidants that are essential for fighting radical damage and keeping the immune system healthy.
- A bonus is that growing your own microgreens reduces your exposure to pesticides, food additives, and other harmful chemicals that can hinder weight loss and adversely affect health.
Harvested early in their growing cycle, they are very tender and flavorful stems that make an excellent addition to your salad bowls, sandwiches or even your smoothies.
