Today, I am so excited to share with you one of the most medicinal, healing foods you can eat. A food that is often overlooked, this Medical Medium ® Top Ten Superfood is packed with vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and chlorophyll, making it one of the most complete foods you can eat. This food can support nearly every function in your body, from boosting your immune health and strengthening your bones to even bolstering brain health and improving memory and focus.
I am talking about sprouts!!
Sprouts have wonderful health benefits. Sprouts like alfalfa, clover, or sunflower sprouts are amongst the best ones, as they are such well-rounded, nutritionally packed foods that incredible sources of:
- Vitamins A, C, D, K, and B-Complex
- Minerals, including iron, calcium, zinc, magnesium, molybdenum, and silicon
- Chlorophyll, which is known to flush toxins from the body, nourish the blood, and provide healing to damaged cells and tissues
- All eight essential amino acids
Adding sprouts to your diet can improve so many aspects of your health. They are one of the best brain foods you can eat, providing an improvement in concentration, focus, memory, and overall neurological health. If you have an important task coming up, need to study, or just find yourself distracted and overwhelmed, eating sprouts can allow you to keep your mind centered and focused.
The eight essential amino acids found in alfalfa and sunflower sprouts are necessary for bone health by increasing bone strength and density. If you suffer from, or are at an increased risk of osteoporosis, sprouts can strengthen your bones and help you avoid bone fractures and breaks. Because sprouts are also loaded with saponins that have wonderful anti-inflammatory properties, you can heal from pain and aching while enjoying strong joints and bones.
Anthony William recommends eating sprouts especially if you suffer from, or seek to avoid the following health ailments:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Menopausal symptoms
- Macular degeneration
- Tooth decay
- Heart disease
Where do you get sprouts?
