How This Nourishes Your Body
Professor Edmond Szekely refers to sprouts as “life-generating Bio-genic foods which offer the strongest support for cell regeneration.” Credit for discovering the value of sprouted seeds traditionally goes to the Chinese centuries ago.
Ancient cultures have instinctively been soaking and sprouting seeds for hundreds of years, and reaped the health benefits that we are typically not seeing in this day and age. Sprouted seeds both unlock and create nutrients that would otherwise not be available.
Nutritional Profile of Sprouts
Sprouts are among some of the most nutrient dense foods and are packed with numerous vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and other super phytochemicals that help to nourish and protect our bodies. When nuts, seeds, grains, and legumes are sprouted, their vitamin, fiber, and protein content dramatically increases, and delivers all of that goodness easily into the body.
It is estimated that there can be up to 100 times more enzymes in sprouts than uncooked fruits and vegetables. Sprouts are extremely alkalizing to your body which prevent disease and imbalances.
The best news of all? They are cheap, easy to make, and you can do it yourself all year long.
