Health Benefits by Dr. Allison Freeman, ND
Pea shoots contain nutrients to support healthy blood sugar metabolism. The high folate content protects cells from DNA damage associated with numerous chronic diseases. They are heart-healthy absorbable vitamin K to regulate blood clotting and high fibre content. The choline also supports fat metabolism in the liver.
Fava beans are 28% protein and just 3% fat! Eating just 100g of fava beans provides you with 66% of the recommended dietary allowance for fiber. Rich in phytonutrients such as isoflavone and plant sterols which have been shown to lower cholesterol. Rich in folate (natural form of folic acid). Just 100g of fava beans provides 106% of recommended folate. Fava beans contain levodopa, the same chemical in medicines used to treat Parkinson’s disease. Rich in b vitamins which help metabolize carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Provide a full spectrum of minerals such as iron, copper, manganese, potassium, selenium, calcium and magnesium.
Radishes are a rich source of compounds called glucosinolates, shown to combat carcinogens. Radish, like all microgreens, are rich in fibre, which support healthy intestinal movement and purge stagnant food. Radish microgreens can help to thin mucous and eliminate phlegm. The high vitamin E content supports with healthy walls of arteries and veins.
Sunflower microgreens have a sweet and warming thermal nature. They are a complete protein, meaning they contain all the essential amino acids. When added to meals, the protein content can enhance a sense of satiety to the meal, without adding a feeling of fullness. This can be useful for athletes, growing children, or anyone seeking balanced weight.
Popcorn microgreens contain a daily dose of vitamin C (31.8mg/100g of bioavailable vitamin C) alongside vitamin E and ferulic acid to help defend skin from the effects of air pollution by scavenging free-radicals that affect the skin. Their bright yellow hue display their rich source of the pigment beta-carotene, with broad activity on supporting immunity and regulating normal cell replication.
