Sprouts play a big role into raw vegan diet. But you don’t have to be a raw vegan to enjoy all the health benefits associated with sprouts. And besides their huge health benefits, they are the ultimate locally grown food.
5 reasons to eat more sprouts
Huge amounts of enzymes: Experts estimates that sprouts can have up to 100 times more enzyme levels than raw fruits and vegetables. Enzyme supports your body to better use vitamins, minerals and other nutrients from the food you eat.
Improved protein source: When sprouted, the protein profile of beans, nut and seeds changes, improving the levels of certain amino acids.
Increased fiber: Sprouts contains much more fiber than their unsprouted counterparts. Fiber is very important for health, as it helps to flush out the toxins, lower cholesterol levels and help in fat digestion.
Better vitamin content: Some vitamins dramatically increase during the sprouting process. Sprouts usually have high levels of vitamin A, B-complex, C and E. With only a few days of sprouting, some food can increase their vitamin level by up to 20 times!
Improved mineral absorption: During the sprouting process, minerals bind to proteins making them more usable in the body, especially calcium and magnesium.
