New Year Special: Grow Your Own Microgreens A step towards total wellness. Massive Nutrition in Small Packets! That's how we know Microgreens. They are the ultimate superfood that you can grow in your kitchen! Microgreens are nutrient-packed, flavor-rich miniature versions of commonly eaten greens and vegetables like pakchoi, mustard, carrots, beetroot, kale, rocket, chia, wheatgrass, spinach and much more! These tiny powerhouses of nutrients are the post-sprout, pre-adulthood stage of plants that gourmet chefs like to use as edible jewelry for their dishes. They are super easy to grow and are packed with nutrients.
Did You Know?
Microgreens contain similar and often greater amounts of these nutrients than mature greens. As such, they may similarly reduce the risk of the following diseases:
Heart disease: Microgreens are a rich source of polyphenols, a class of antioxidants linked to a lower risk of heart disease. Animal studies show that microgreens may lower triglyceride and “bad” LDL cholesterol levels.
Alzheimer’s disease: Antioxidant-rich foods, including those containing high amounts of polyphenols, may be linked to a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Diabetes: Antioxidants may help reduce the type of stress that can prevent sugar from properly entering cells. In lab studies, fenugreek microgreens appeared to enhance cellular sugar uptake by 25–44%.
Certain cancers: Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, especially those rich in polyphenols, may lower the risk of various types of cancer. Polyphenol-rich microgreens may be expected to have similar effects.
