The Original Superfood
Google "superfood" and up pops pages and pages of articles and references to the term. The original "Superfood" that actually had a patent granted in the late '90's (1999 by Johns Hopkins and Dr Paul Talalay) that was eventually fought and rescinded, but the research remains that showed broccoli had amazing anti-cancer properties.
Later work has shown that these same sprouts have efficacy when used to mitigate cardiovascular disease, autism, toxic air pollution, and they promote healthy gut bacteria. In addition, mineral rich broccoli microgreens have been shown to offer a unique solution for global malnutrition.
Our new line of kits that are devoted to nutritional wellness and offer you a simple means of providing fresh broccoli microgreens for you and your family. Kits are available now in our store.
