The amazing power of Sprouts
Ever wondered why sprouted seeds, despite being "the perfect food known to man", remain much of an enigma as far as their benefits are concerned?? Well, because they are so completely natural, require no processing and so easy on the pocket that then true value is not realized.
Seeds are life just waiting to be born. Sprouts are an "explosion of life". Sprouted seeds are a staple diet of several oriental civilizations and are well known for their powerful nutritive and healing properties.
The power of Sprouts has been well documented in ancient Chinese and Indian texts. The use of Sprouts in digestive disorders, muscular cramps, hair and skin problems has been very well known. The sixteenth century Chinese work,"Pen Tsao Kang Mu", further elaborated on the ability of sprouts to reduce inflammation, lower fever and tone the body.
Sprouts made their debut in the western world through Captain cook who sailed the seas for over a decade without losing a single man to the dreaded Scurvy. His secret? A daily ration of malt made from sprouted beans!!
A Nutritive Powerhouse
Sprouts bear the largest relative amount of nutrients per unit of intake of any food known to man. They have enough first - quality proteins to be classified as "complete". Many sprouted seeds such as those of alfalfa and sunflower contain all the essential amino acids in their "free" state, which means that more nutrients reach the cells with less food.
Sprouting increases the vitamin content of a seed dramatically. The vitamin C value of wheat increases 600% in the early sprouting period. Sprouts contain more vitamin C than oranges. In a discovery, the vitamin laetrile, known for its success in cancer therapy was found to increase over a 1000% in the sprouted seed.
Enzymes, considered the key to longevity are greatly activated in the sprouting process. The absence of enzymes produces that "tired, run down feeling".
Sprouts are the best "living food". In fact, they are so alive that they are still growing when you eat them.
