Benefits of Microgreens

They May be Tiny, but Microgreens are a Nutritional Powerhouse,
Extremely Important for the Health of Our Skin and Eyes, and in Fighting Cancer

Microgreens have long been thought of as the fancy garnish on a high-end meal that gets pushed off to the side and ignored. What?! While most microgreens are beautiful in their own right, they are far more than a visual appeal component to your meal.

To get the most benefits from microgreens, they should become a staple in your kitchen  (just remember to get them in your belly).

Microgreens Benefits for Skin

  1. Anti-aging: High levels of antioxidants and vitamin C boost collagen levels in the skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and help maintain a youthful, radiant complexion.
  2. Prevents acne: Microgreens are known to be anti-inflammatory, which is also attributed to those gotta-have antioxidants; because of that, microgreens can reduce the frequency and severity of breakouts.
  3. Prevents sun damage: In case we haven’t gone on long enough about antioxidants, they also happen to stimulate blood flow to the skin, increasing its amount of oxygen and nutrients. As such, new skin cells are produced at a faster rate, repairing sun-caused damage to older cells.

Microgreens Benefits for Health

  1. Polyphenols in microgreens lower bad cholesterol levels in the body, which then reduces the risk of heart disease.
  2. Those polyphenols also lower the risk of developing several different types of cancers.
  3. Antioxidants in microgreens help cells absorb sugar, which can assist in preventing, and also help those with, diabetes.
  4. Regular consumption of microgreens can boost both mental and physical health and well-being.
  5. As mentioned on the home page, microgreens boost immunity, help improve eyesight, ward off digestive issues and reduce constipation.
