Sprouts are a Power-House of Nutrition!

For an inexpensive way to obtain fresh, nutrient-dense food, try sprouting.

Sprouts have been grown by many civilizations over the past 5,000 years.

Sprouts are rich with vitamins, minerals, proteins, and enzymes and deliver them in a form that is easily assimilated and digested.

Nutritional benefits of sprouts:

*Broccoli sprouts have been found to contain 50 times as much of the antioxidant sulfurophane as mature broccoli.

*Wheat Grass juice is the closest substance to hemoglobin, and is therefore a phenomenal blood purifier and liver de-toxifier.

*New research indicates that peanut sprouts reduce cholesterol.

*Sunflower, buckwheat and grain sprouts dramatically improve the quality of life for diabetics.

*Sunflower sprouts are rich in lecithin and vitamin D. They have the power to break fatty acids and lead to easy digestion.

*Clover sprouts are known as an anti-cancer herb. It have significant source of isoflavones.

*Lentil sprouts contain 26% protein, and you can eat it raw without cooking.

*Mung bean sprouts are good source of protein, fiber, vitamin C and A, and with low calories.

The list goes on and on.

Growing your own sprouts means having your own private supply of fresh organic vegetables every day from a couple square feet of counter space.
