Microgreens, with their antioxidant properties, help immunity by developing a first line defence system against infections.

They contain up to 40 times higher levels of vital nutrients than their mature counterparts.

Microgreens are potent sources of a variety of immunity-boosting vitamins, minerals, trace elements and enzymes that will help your body ward off illness and infection.

Vitamin C contained in sprouts is a very powerful stimulant for the body’s white blood cells, while Vitamin A is already known for its antioxidative properties.

Free radicals due to environmental stressors like pollution and some of the body’s natural processes, can lead to cell damage and serious health conditions.

An excess of free radicals can also lead to a range of inflammatory conditions.

Microgreens being high in antioxidants, can negate the effects of free radicals and give your health a boost.

Some of the best microgreens to have are red amaranth, radish, alfalfa, sunflower, wheatgrass, beetroot, mustard, lettuce, chicory and broccoli.
