A new health suggestion is the inclusion of microgreens. Microgreens are greens that are harvested before they have ripened fully.
The variety of these nutritional dynamos is vast. It starts at everyday Indian kitchen staples cabbage, beetroots, coriander, mint , carrots, raddish, mustard greens and extends to the more exotic argula, chives, kale, watercress and basil.
The nutrition powerhouse of microgreens comes from –
1. 40 times higher levels of vital nutrients
Studies have shown that microgreens have 40 times higher levels of vital nutrients than the same mature greens. Take for example cabbage which in the microgreen form has 40x Vit E and 6x Vit C. Our normal coriander is a great source of beta carotene, but the microgreen version has 3x of the nature’s betacarotene levels.
2. Packed with Antioxidants
#Microgreens have high levels polyphenols which contains antioxidant properties. These antioxidants keep the body fighting fit against freerdaicals that cause some of the most harmful chronic diseases.
With the above two it is obvious that microgreens will improve health and help prevent chronicdiseases.
