why microgreens are good for everyone
Microgreens are smaller versions of full-grown vegetables. Although they are small, micro greens have delicate textures, distinctive flavors, and various nutrients.
In general, microgreens contain greater amounts of nutrients and health-promoting micronutrients than their mature counterparts. Because microgreens are rich in nutrients, smaller amounts may provide larger nutritional effects than heavier quantities of full-sized vegetables.
While their nutrient contents vary slightly, most varieties tend to be rich in potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium, copper, and antioxidants.
The USDA reported that microgreen red cabbage holds six times more Vitamin C than mature red cabbage. Vitamin C and other ascorbic acids play a key role in the development and the production of tissue cells during the healing process. Additionally, Vitamin C works as a catalyst for other antioxidants that are needed for daily functioning, including Vitamin E.
In microgreen broccoli, there is 10 times the amount of glucobrassicin, a form of glucosinolate which is an organic compound known for their role in preventing cancer cell growth.
