The SUPER Superfood.

Interest into the nutrition of microgreens is relatively new in comparason to modern food research, but scientists have already been blown away by the data. The rich and expansive results found so far could very well offer  microgreens the title of the most nutrient packed food on earth!

Itty-Bitty Powerhouse of Health

Don’t let those meager leaves fool you; it’s bursting with copious amounts of vitamins, antioxidants, and nutrients that not only prevent disease, but can possibly reverse health issues too.
Microgreens are a cute and compact crop that is jam-packed with antioxidants,  vitamins, and health promoting nutrients. A  piece of what makes microgreens unique is  the massive levels of two crucial components: polyphenols, and  sulforaphane

Polyphenols

A diet rich in polyphenols may lower the risk of a wide range of degenerative and chronic diseases. Epidemiological studies and associated meta-analyses strongly suggest that long term consumption of diets rich in plant polyphenols offer protection against development of cancers, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis and neurodegenerative diseases.

 

Sulforaphane

Sulforaphane activates the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory responses and can avoid damage cause by oxidization and inflammation. Sulforaphane in microgreens are known to aid in the halting of  neurodegeneration. and neuroinflammation.
  Nutritional supplementation of sulforaphane can enhance respiratory antiviral defense responses and constricts nasal allergic responses. 

A Little is a Lot!

Microgreens offer anywhere from 4x the amount to 40x the amount of some nutrients and vitamins as the vegetables a mature plant would produce! In this study, broccoli microgreens had larger quantities of  Magnesium, Manganese, Copper, Phosphorus, Potassium, Calcium, Iron and Zinc than the full-grown vegetable.

“In general, microgreens contain greater amounts of nutrients and health-promoting micronutrients than their mature counterparts. Because microgreens are rich in nutrients, smaller amounts may provide similar nutritional effects compared to larger quantities of mature vegetables.”  Source
