Sprouts in the compliant diet

Despi­te their small size, do sprouts have simi­lar health bene­fits to the full-grown vege­ta­bles they might deve­lop into? What do the small power­hou­ses offer bes­i­des their space-saving cul­ti­va­ti­on method? 
Sprouts against a brown background

The ingre­di­ents of sprouts and micro­greens are rich in valuable nut­ri­ents such as vit­amin A, B vit­amins, trace ele­ments, secon­da­ry plant sub­s­tances, mine­rals and phy­to­che­mi­cal com­pounds. In this respect they are in no way infe­ri­or to their adult vege­ta­ble coun­ter­parts. Howe­ver, the vege­ta­bles that have had time and space to deve­lop to their full size requi­re many times more diges­ti­ve power so that the body can extra­ct the same nut­ri­ents from them. The­r­e­fo­re, con­sum­ing sprouts and micro­greens is a simp­le and powerful path to bet­ter health. 

Sprouts as a builder of neurotransmitters

The high con­tent of mine­ral salts in sprouts allows for bet­ter pro­duc­tion of neu­ro­trans­mit­ters in the brain. They also sup­p­ly the brain with enzy­mes and ami­no acids, making it easier to rebuild neu­rons. Sin­ce, accor­ding to our favo­ri­te aut­hor, sprouts can also pull hea­vy metals from the brain, they are addi­tio­nal­ly valuable. 

Which varieties are particularly suitable as sprouts? 

  • alfal­fa
  • broc­co­li
  • Fenu­greek
  • Peas
  • Kale
  • len­ses
  • Mung beans
  • radish
  • Red clover
  • sun­flowers

Sprouts are carriers of increased biotics

Sprouts and micro­greens also do ama­zing things in defen­ding against infec­tions and against unwan­ted cell growth, such as can­cer. He points out that sprouts and micro­greens are the car­ri­ers of so-cal­led ‘increased bio­tics’, which in natu­re grow, among other things, on fresh­ly grown germs and sprouts. 

Increased bio­tics are abso­lut­e­ly neces­sa­ry for the pro­duc­tion of the body’s own vit­amin B12. They crea­te fan­ta­stic bac­te­ri­al flo­ra in the intesti­nes and are the reason why nut­ri­ents and vit­amins are actual­ly absor­bed or not and then made available to the liver. If the­se increased bio­tics are miss­ing, the diges­ti­ve sys­tem and liver are con­fron­ted with too many pests and can­not ful­fill their true tasks opti­mal­ly. The­se increased bio­tics can be easi­ly sup­pli­ed with sprouts.

Tips for the practical use of sprouts

  • For noti­ceable bene­fits it is good to eat 100g per day. 
  • When you grow your own sprouts, then ima­gi­ne them like litt­le pets: they also thri­ve on fri­end­ship and absorb the ener­gy of tho­se around them and ever­y­thing that is said around them. The­r­e­fo­re, always try to approach your sprouts with joy. Talk to them, encou­ra­ge them, and touch their heads with your fin­gers as you pass them. Gro­wing your own food means that food takes your indi­vi­du­al needs and adapts your diet to pro­vi­de you with opti­mal nut­ri­ti­on. Sprouts and micro­greens are par­ti­cu­lar­ly good at adap­ting to your spe­ci­fic health needs becau­se they are so adaptogenic. 
  • Sprouts like radish, broc­co­li, fenu­greek, Kale and sun­flowers should be con­su­med at luncht­i­me as they sup­port your ener­gy during the day. Bean and len­til sprouts should be con­su­med with din­ner as they calm and relax the ner­vous sys­tem in the evening.
  • You can spray your sprouts dai­ly with liquid mixed with water Sea mine­rals mine­ra­li­ze even bet­ter so that the sprouts are char­ged with mine­rals during their deve­lo­p­ment for the bene­fit of your health. 
  • A juice made from cucum­bers, pea shoots, and sun­flower greens can, over time, increase a person’s abili­ty to see at night.
