Microgreens are packed with nutrients. Some studies suggest that you get everything and more - up to 9 times more! - in each of these tiny plants, when compared to eating the full grown version. This makes them a healthy-eating powerhouse; allowing you to get concentrated, vital nutrients into your body in ways that are easy and delicious.
While each microgreen varies as far as quantities of specific nutrients, the heavy hitters that are essential to a healthy body that are found in microgreens are:
- plant based fiber and proteins
- minerals like iron, zinc, magnesium and copper
- polyphenols and other antioxidants
By eating these small wonders you're also helping your body to protect you from:
- heart disease
- Alzheimer's disease
- certain cancers

Microgreens are a tasty way to upgrade anything from your regular sandwich to tacos, salads, smoothies and more. Get creative - your health will thank you!
