Why Microgreens Are Healthy For You.
Microgreens are loaded with nutritional benefits that can support your everyday intake of vitamins and minerals, helping you to live a healthy lifestyle. Because microgreens are harvested right after germination they hold high levels of Vitamin C, Vitamin E and other essential nutrients that can help to keep you healthy. A recent study carried out at the University of Maryland, College Park* found that some microgreen varieties held significantly more health benefits than the mature version of the plants. Take the Red Cabbage microgreen – holding up to 40 times the amount of Vitamin C and E than a fully developed red cabbage plant, it is not only packed with flavor, it can also help you stay healthy. So which greens are the healthiest? Although all of our microgreens hold nutritional benefits, experts suggest that the darker the green the better it is for you. If you are looking for high levels of Vitamin K, C, and E try Red Cabbage, Garnet Amaranth, or Green Daikon Radish. If you are looking for nutrients like lutein and beta carotene, try the Cilantro microgreen. We love microgreens and we know your body will probably love them too. Healthy, crisp, fresh, and flavorful. See all of our microgreen varieties on our Microgreens page.
