Sprouts truly are the best locally-grown food, yet not enough people eat or grow them. The main reason for eating sprouts is about nutrition and digestion. When you sprout foods, you increase proteolytic enzymes that make both carbohydrates and proteins digestible which have the ability to fight off disease.
Here are some reasons to eat more sprouts:
Hair Growth: Sprouts contain a decent amount of vitamin C, which is proven to promote healthy hair growth. It destroys the free radicals in the body which makes the hair weak, brittle and thin.
Full of neutrinos: Experts estimate that there can be up to 100 times more enzymes in sprouts than uncooked fruits and vegetables. Enzymes are special types of proteins that act as catalysts for all your body’s functions. Extracting more vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids from the foods you eat to ensure that your body has the nutritional building blocks of life to ensure every process works more effectively.
Improve Digestion: Sprouts contain an unusually high number of enzymes. This can help boost various metabolic processes and chemical reactions within the body, specifically when it comes to digestion. Enzymes are an important part of the digestive process, and they help break down food effectively and increase the absorption of nutrients by the digestive tract.
Aids in weight loss: As sprouts are high in nutrients and low in calories, they make up for your nutrient requirements. On the other hand, they are also high in fiber and can keep you satiated for longer. All these things aid weight loss, thereby making sprouts an amazing weight loss food.
Improve Heart Health: Sprouts may reduce risk factors for heart disease, such as high blood cholesterol levels. Eating sprouts increase “good” HDL cholesterol and reduce total and “bad” LDL cholesterol levels.
Good source of proteins: Sprouts are also a good source of proteins, especially for vegetarians who do not eat other protein-rich foods like chicken and meat. Sprouts contain up to 35 percent of protein. They provide your body with all it is necessary protein intake without the extra fat, cholesterol, and calories that come with other proteins sources.
