Inside Micro Mix: Broccoli, Radish Mix and Sunflower
Health Benefits by Dr. Allison Freeman, ND
Broccoli: Contains 100x more sulforane than the full-grown version of the vegetable. Sulforane activates the critical Nrf2 pathways, as a cancer-prevention food, to regulate normal cell growth, for detoxification and antioxidant pathways. A study with over 130 participants found that weekly intake of broccoli (400g/week) for 12 weeks significantly lowered LDL-cholesterol level. The calcium and potassium content support healthy bones and the maintenance of acid-base balance of the urine and blood.
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.
