There is a great debate bubbling regarding the role of microgreens and how they can impact your health and well being. I think a better way to approach the use of microgreens is "why not". There has been much documented research showing how effective broccoli sprouts are in fighting cancer. In fact, Johns Hopkins researchers successfully patented (not upheld) broccoli as a cancer fighter.
In an article originating in Israel, it is stated “In fact, in the oncology departments here, in Israel, they recommend that their patients eat micro-broccoli. This product has active cancer-fighting ingredients. All microgreens are preventative. Broccoli, in general, fights cancer. Now, in micro-broccoli, you have ten times more sulforaphane. This is the active ingredient that fights cancer”
We believe microgreens are great ways to consume nutrition and wellness components in a concentrated form.
