Microgreens can be up to 40 times more nutrient-dense than their mature plant counterpart. Due to our grow practices, our Microgreen supplements are designed to deliver amazing health benefits and nutrition you can really FEEL!
WHAT IS A MICROGREEN?
Microgreens are essentially ‘baby versions’ of your favorite leafy greens! Microgreens are usually harvested 7-21 days after germination, which is when the plant’s first leaves (cotyledon leaves) emerge.
HOW DO THEY COMPARE TO ADULT GREENS?
Microgreens are up to 40 times more nutrient-dense than their adult greens counterparts. An American chemical study looked at nutrient levels of 25 different microgreens and compared them to full-sized leafy vegetables and herbs. Nutrient levels in different microgreens varied, but they always had higher levels per gram of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Vitamin A.
How is this possible?
When a plant is in it's microgreen stage, it has packed away ample nutrients to start its long awaited journey at becoming a fully grown plant. Growing intricate root systems and broad leaves takes energy! This means that microgreens are more concentrated versions of their mature counterpart and you don’t have to eat as much to have the same benefits. As plants grow out, the storage of nutrients are used up, so eating mature versions of plants won't give you the same nutritional density as eating the microgreen version.
