10 Reasons to Eat Sprouts

6.  During sprouting, minerals bind to protein in the seed, grain, nut, or bean, making them more useable in the body.  This is true of alkaline minerals like calcium, magnesium, and others than help us to balance our body chemistry for weight loss and better health.

7.  Sprouts are the ultimate locally-grown food. When you grow them yourself you are helping the environment and ensuring that you are not getting unwanted pesticides, food additives, and other harmful fat-bolstering chemicals that thwart your weight loss efforts.

8.  The energy contained in the seed, grain, nut, or legume is ignited through soaking and sprouting.

9.  Sprouts are alkalizing to your body.  Many illnesses including cancer have been linked to excess acidity in the body.

10.  Sprouts are inexpensive. People frequently use the cost of healthy foods as an excuse for not eating healthy.  But, with sprouts being so cheap, there really is no excuse for not eating healthier.

To get much of that nutritional punch, you really do need to do your own sprouts, since having them sitting around for many days while being transported to the store simply defeats the whole purpose.

This is very important. All seeds especially beans must be sprouted to get all the benefits from it. Thanks for posting this.
