Like the vegetables they would become if they grew to their full size, sprouts and micro plants are packed with nutrients like vitamin A, B vitamins, minerals, trace elements, fiber and other phytochemicals. When we eat green plants in this early phase of their life, we use only a small part of the digestive process to absorb their medicinal properties. The most important role that sprouts and micro plants play is to restore vitality to people with busy daily lives. When you put your heart and soul into everything you do, whether at home or at work, sprouts have the unique ability to support you.

Sprouts and micro plants are wonderful reproductive foods. They are one of the best means of rejuvenating the exhausted reproductive system and re-energizing the exhausted mother caring for her newborn. Sprouts and micro plants are phytoestrogenic and are critical for rebalancing hormones such as progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone, as well as regenerating hormone production in the adrenal glands, thyroid gland, and the rest of the endocrine system after childbirth.

High in mineral salts, which are involved in the chemical production of neurotransmitters, sprouts and micro plants also support the brain with amino acids and enzymes, remove toxic heavy metals from the brain and help rejuvenate and strengthen neurons, which ultimately helps the body to overcome Alzheimer's, dementia, brain fog and memory loss. Sprouts and micro-plants are great for skin repair and are also rich in more than 60 micronutrients, including iron, iodine, selenium, zinc, copper, manganese, sulphur, magnesium, chromium and molybdenum. As anti-proliferative agents, sprouts and micro-plants prevent infections and unwanted cell growth (e.g. cancer). In addition, they are the best possible source of increased biotic substances, which are crucial for the production of vitamin B12 in the body. And at this early stage of growth, sprouts and micro-plants contain thousands of phytochemicals that energize your body.

Choosing sprouts is like choosing friends - they all have different personalities. Everyone has that one type of friend who you know is a great guy, but who's still a bit annoying – can you only put up with him in small doses? This describes broccoli sprouts. Strong in flavor and slightly peppery, broccoli sprouts are great for boosting digestion by increasing hydrochloric acid levels. And do you have a friend who you sometimes hold back from sharing everything with because you know her fiery, explosive nature will mean she'll jump to your defense before you've even finished speaking? It is the radish that is remarkable for its ability to cleanse the liver (an organ that is fiery in itself in many of us). What about the friend who is very gentle and calm, who listens to everything you say and offers words of comfort? This describes red clover sprouts, which are very soothing as they gently cleanse your lymph and blood, removing toxins and purifying your body. It's the turn of the friend who is very emotional and cries very easily, whether it's happy tears or sad tears. Fenugreek sprouts are all heart and soul, perfect for supporting our emotions and endocrine system, which are related to the heart, soul and brain. Fenugreek sprouts are especially helpful in balancing the production of cortisol by the adrenal glands and regulating the production of thyroid hormones. And we can't forget about that friend with muscles, the guy you call to show up with a pickup truck and help you move out of your house. These are the lentil sprouts. Energy-dense, high in fortifying protein that your body digests with ease, lentils also give you a carbohydrate base to help you get through whatever you need to get done. Lentil sprouts like to give you their raw power. Eating them is like powering yourself up with a New Year's Eve dinner and still having huge energy afterwards instead of wanting to fall asleep on the couch. The list is endless. Also keep an eye out for mung bean sprouts, sunflower sprouts, pea shoots and micro kale, among other beneficial micro plants. Just like the people who support you in life, all the different varieties of sprouts and micro plants have special qualities that you will discover as you get to know them.

A spiritual lesson

Sprouts and micro plants are highly adaptogenic. They don't require a perfect environment. While under other circumstances these seeds would be given enough soil, space, sunlight, rain and fresh air to take root and grow to their maximum when grown in pots on the counter, they thrive when packed into a jar or tray with enough light and water to survive. All it takes is a little routine (sprouts need regular rinsing and micro plants regular misting) for these shoots to adapt to their circumstances. And they do it with joy - if sprouts and micro plants had faces, each of them would have a smile. This cheerful adaptability is passed on to us when we eat them. As long as we have the essentials and provide ourselves with a little routine to normalize our lives, then even in the most difficult situations we can draw strength from our little friends and find a way to thrive.


* For noticeable benefits, eat two cups of sprouts per day.

* When you grow your own sprouts, think of them as little pets: they feed on communication and take in the energy of the environment and everything that is said around them. Always try to approach your sprouts with happiness. Talk to them, encourage them, and run your fingers over their tops as you pass them by. As Anthony William points out in his book The Healthiest Foods , growing your own food means that food picks up on your individual needs and tailors its nutrition to feed you in the best possible way. Sprouts and micro-plants are especially adept at adjusting to your specific health needs because they are adaptogenic.

* Do not cook your sprouts if you want to get the most benefit. Sprouts and micro-plants are an amazing source of elevated biotics, those microorganisms that are so important for gut health and vitamin B12 production . The increased biotics remain intact only when the sprouts and micro-plants are consumed raw. (And when those elevated biotics are in sprouts and micro-plants you've grown yourself, they're targeted to benefit your own flora.)

* Daily sprinkling of liquid sea minerals mixed with water on home grown sprouts and micro plants mineralizes them during their development, energizing them for your health.

* Sprouts and micro-plants such as radishes, broccoli, fenugreek, kale and sunflower should be eaten at lunch because they keep your energy levels up throughout the day. Bean sprouts and lentils should be eaten with dinner because they help calm and relax your nervous system in the evening.

* Juice made from cucumber, pea and sunflower sprouts can over time enhance a person's ability to see at night.
