Sprout­ing brings a dor­mant seed to life. The ger­mi­na­tion process can mul­ti­ply the nutri­tional value of nutri­ents by 300 to 1,200 per­cent. (Source: www.livestrong.com)

Wheat­grass (Source: www.hippocratesinst.org)

  • Rich­est source of chloro­phyll, which has a remark­able sim­i­lar­ity to hemo­glo­bin, the com­pound that car­ries oxy­gen in the blood.
  • Increases red blood cells count and low­ers blood pressure.
  • Cleanses the blood, organs and gas­troin­testi­nal tract of debris.
  • Stim­u­lates metab­o­lism and the body’s enzyme sys­tems by enrich­ing the blood.
  • Stim­u­lates the thy­roid gland, cor­rect­ing obe­sity, indi­ges­tion, and a host of other complaints.
  • The juice’s abun­dance of alka­line min­er­als helps reduce over-acidity in the blood.
  • A pow­er­ful detox­i­fier, and liver and blood protector.
  • The enzymes and amino acids found in wheat­grass can pro­tect us from car­cino­gens like no other food or med­i­cine. It strength­ens our cells, detox­i­fies the liver and blood­stream, and chem­i­cally neu­tral­izes envi­ron­men­tal pollutants.
  • Recent stud­ies show that wheat­grass juice has a pow­er­ful abil­ity to fight tumors with­out the usual tox­i­c­ity of drugs that also inhibit cell-destroying agents.
  • Has remark­able sim­i­lar­ity to our own blood.
  • In the case of ill­ness, wheat­grass implants stim­u­late a rapid cleans­ing of the lower bowel and draw out accu­mu­la­tions of debris.
  • Exter­nally applied to the skin, can help elim­i­nate itch­ing almost immediately.
  • Will soothe sun­burned skin and act as a disinfectant.
  • Rubbed into the scalp before a sham­poo, it will help repair dam­aged hair and alle­vi­ate itchy, scaly, scalp conditions.
  • Sooth­ing and heal­ing for cuts, burns, scrapes, rashes, poi­son ivy, athlete’s foot, insect bites, boils, sores, open ulcers and tumors. Use as a poul­tice and replace every two to four hours.
  • Works as a sleep aide. A tray of liv­ing wheat­grass placed at near the head of your bed will increase oxy­gen in the air and gen­er­ate health­ful neg­a­tive ions to help you sleep more soundly.
  • Enhances your bath. Add some to your bath water and set­tle in for a nice, long soak.
  • Sweet­ens the breath and firms up and tight­ens gums. Gar­gle with the juice.
  • Neu­tral­izes toxic sub­stances like cad­mium, nico­tine, stron­tium, mer­cury, and polyvinyl chloride.
  • Offers the ben­e­fits of a liq­uid oxy­gen trans­fu­sion since the juice con­tains liq­uid oxy­gen. Oxy­gen is vital to many body processes: it stim­u­lates diges­tion (the oxi­da­tion of food), pro­motes clearer think­ing (the brain uti­lizes 25% of the body’s oxy­gen sup­ply), and pro­tects the blood against anaer­o­bic bac­te­ria. Can­cer cells can­not exist in the pres­ence of oxygen.
  • Help reju­ve­nate aging cells, slow­ing down the aging process
  • One enzyme found in wheat­grass, SOD, lessens the effects of radi­a­tion and acts as an anti-inflammatory com­pound that may pre­vent cel­lu­lar damage.
  • Restores fer­til­ity and pro­motes youthfulness.
  • Can dou­ble your red blood cell count just by soak­ing in it. Renowned nutri­tion­ist Dr. Bernard Jensen found that no other blood builders are supe­rior to green juices and wheat­grass. In his book Health Magic Through Chloro­phyll from Liv­ing Plant Life he men­tions sev­eral cases where he was able to dou­ble the red blood cell count in a mat­ter of days merely by hav­ing patients soak in a chlorophyll-water bath. Blood build­ing results occur even more rapidly when patients drink green juices and wheat­grass regularly.

 

Sun­flower Sprouts (Source:

  • Have such an affin­ity for the life giv­ing force that they twist on their stems so their faces can bask in sun­light all through the day.
  • Pho­tons from the sun are stored in the DNA of the sun­flower, mak­ing its seed res­onate with the pho­tons in human cells.
  • Key nutri­ents in sun­flower seeds raise sero­tonin lev­els and boost nerve func­tion naturally.
  • High lev­els of mag­ne­sium help reg­u­late nerve function.
  • Sub­stan­tial con­tent of the amino acid tryp­to­phan enhances sero­tonin pro­duc­tion and thus improves mood.
  • Good source of vit­a­min B6 also nec­es­sary to fuel the body’s nor­mal depression-fighting chem­i­cal reactions.
  • Rich in vit­a­min E, the pri­mary fat-soluble antiox­i­dant in the human body. It pro­tects against inflam­ma­tion, mak­ing it a potent fighter of arthri­tis, can­cer and diabetes.
  • One-quarter cup of sun­flower seeds con­tains over 90% of the daily value of vit­a­min E.
  • Loaded with potassium
  • One-quarter cup of sun­flower seeds con­tains more than 30% of the daily value for sele­nium in a form with much greater bioavail­abil­ity than can be obtained from sele­nium supplements.
  • Rich source of  sele­nium, mag­ne­sium, and manganese.
  • Act as a nat­ural pH buffer because of their high min­eral content.

 

Pea Shoots (Source: www.livestrong.com)

  • Young leaves of the pea plant, har­vested as micro­greens at just a few weeks of growth.
  • Taste like peas and are excel­lent in sal­ads, sand­wiches and juiced.
  • Great source of three can­cer fight­ing agents: foli­ate, antiox­i­dants and carotene. Foli­ate helps pro­duce and main­tain cells and pro­tects against DNA dam­age. Antiox­i­dants help the body fight free rad­i­cal dam­age, com­monly asso­ci­ated with high can­cer risk. Carotenes help inhibit antiox­i­dant activ­ity and are com­monly asso­ci­ated with increased can­cer prevention.
  • One cup of pea shoots pro­vides about 35% the daily value of vit­a­min C and 15% the DV of vit­a­min A. In com­par­i­son, this is seven times as much vit­a­min C as blue­ber­ries and four times as much vit­a­min A as tomatoes.
  • Excel­lent source of vit­a­min K, pro­vid­ing 66% the DV from a one cup serving.

 

Buck­wheat Sprouts (Source: www.natralnews.com)

  • Buck­wheat becomes packed with live enzymes and vital nutri­ents when sprouted.
  • Tastes like a grain but is actu­ally gluten and wheat free and not a grain at all.
  • One of the most com­plete sources of pro­tein on the planet, con­tain­ing all eight essen­tial amino acids.
  • Low­ers high blood pressure.
  • Cleanses the colon and alka­lizes the body.
  • Won­der­ful super food for peo­ple who have vari­cose veins or hard­en­ing of the arteries.
  • Full of rutin, a com­pound that is known as a pow­er­ful cap­il­lary wall strengthener.
  • Rich in lecithin, mak­ing it a won­der­ful cho­les­terol bal­ancer because lecithin soaks up “bad” cho­les­terol and pre­vents it from being absorbed.
  • Brain boost­ing super food. 28% of the brain is actu­ally made up of lecithin. Research sug­gests that reg­u­larly con­sum­ing foods rich in lecithin may actu­ally pre­vent anx­i­ety, depres­sion, brain fog, men­tal fatigue and gen­er­ally make the brain sharper and clearer.
  • High in iron so it is a good blood builder.
  • Pre­vents osteo­poro­sis because of its high boron and cal­cium levels.
  • High in bioflavonoids, flavonols and co-enzyme Q10. It con­tains all of the B vit­a­mins, mag­ne­sium, man­ganese, and sele­nium, as well as many other health giv­ing compounds.
