Microgreens

What are they?

Baby plants, which hold a higher concentration of nutrients than their larger, adult relatives. 40 times more nutrient dense, in fact!

Microgreens show a wider variety of polyphenols and other antioxidants than mature greens. Vitamin concentrations have been shown to be higher.

Most varieties of microgreens tend to be high in potassium, zinc, iron, magnesium, and copper.

Why Should We Include Microgreens In My Diet?

Besides getting more bang for you buck, microgreens ensure that you will meet your daily nutritional quotients more efficiently than when consuming adult greens.

Not only do they contain more nutrients for less volume, but their nutrient levels are so high they may stand in equivalence to greens powders - with the added benefit of holding the living energy of a fresh harvest!
