Are you concerned that your food is lacking in essential vitamins and nutrients? Is your food making you sick? Did you know sprouts are considered nature’s super food? There are many reasons to eat them daily. Sprouts contain vitamins A-Z, they are hydrating, alkalizing, biogenic and regenerative.

 

In addition to all these healthful reasons to add sprouts to your life, they also contain digestive enzymes. Digestive enzymes help our body process the food we eat. The older we get, the tougher it is for our bodies to produce enzymes. Did you know that the cooking process destroys enzymes in food? If enzymes are not in the food we eat, our body will utilize enzymes reserves to digest. To slow the aging process, it is essential that we increase our digestive enzyme intake. This is easily achievable by consuming sprouts every day. If enzyme activity gets too low, disease may result.

 

Sprouts are biogenic meaning ‘living food’. When eating sprouts we are eating live food and the life force is transferred to our body. As a seed or bean germinates, everything is available to grow that baby sprout into a full-grown plant. As sprouts continue to grow, they become plants with long roots and they, like vegetables, have very few enzymes compared to baby sprouts. Sprouts are simply vegetables in their prime.

Lose weight and gain energy. Sprouts are great for weight loss as they contain lots of fibre and are a complete protein. Sprouts are also zero point foods. So you can eat them guilt-free while getting healthier.

 

Sprouts are alkalizing. Many illnesses including cancer have been linked to excess acidity in the body. Eating sprouts helps to balance the pH in the body. Studies have also shown that Mung and other types of sprouts contain exceptionally high levels of a natural cancer-fighting compound called sulforaphane (20 – 50 times more than in mature broccoli) that helps support antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E. 

 

Sprouts are regenerative. Eating sprouts keeps you feeling energized. Alzheimer's is a degenerative illness. Sprouts may slow the progression of degenerative disease.

Sprouts are hydrating. Our bodies require a vast amount of water to keep running in topnotch condition. If you are thirsty, you are already starting to get dehydrated. Adding sprouts to your diet will add delicious moisture keeping you hydrated.

 

Sprouts are easily digestible due to the abundant enzymes nutrients are assimilated into our bodies with ease. Sprouts are food for long-term health and wellness, as they can help to prevent disease. Best of all, sprouts are delicious, nutritious and can be grown on your counter for pennies a day. Adding sprouts to your life adds life to your life. Start sprouting today and enjoy increased health and vitality.
