Stupendous Cruciferous Sprouts
Cruciferous vegetables are some of the most potent superfoods to nourish, protect and cleanse our bodies. These trendy, cabbage family veggies — including broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, arugula, cauliflower, cabbage, among others — are packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytonutrients. But what makes them stand out from the vegetable crowd? Let’s take a look.
Cabbage family veggies are rich in vitamins such as folate, vitamin C and vitamin K, and they contain essential minerals such as potassium, selenium and calcium. Plus, they possess an impressive list of phytochemicals including carotenoids, chlorophyll, flavonoids, lignans, and phytosterols.
One unique feature of cruciferous vegetables is that they are rich in sulfur-containing phytonutrients called glucosinolates that impart them with a pungent aroma and spicy/bitter taste. These phytonutrients support our health in several ways including triggering a healthy antioxidant and inflammatory response, cleansing and keeping our cells in balance, and fostering the production of the all-important antioxidant glutathione. Glutathione is our body’s master antioxidant and is arguably the most indispensable compound when it comes to detoxification and staying healthy.
As if cruciferous veggies weren't impressive enough, their sprouts are even more nutritionally potent. That's because during the sprouting process, stored protein and carbohydrates in the seed get converted into active enzymes and vitamins, increasing their levels by as much as three to five times.
The array of organic, fresh freeze-dried cruciferous vegetables in Cell Protector™ include sprouts from broccoli, upland cress, daikon, red radish, cauliflower, cabbage and arugula. Our certified organic seeds are gently activated in a proprietary broth, rich in catalytic minerals and other essential nutrients. After they burst into life, our sprouts are harvested, flash frozen and immediately freeze-dried. This results in optimal preservation of the enzymes and other valuable constituents between harvesting and freeze-drying. After drying, they are quickly cold-milled into a fine powder.
With this level of attention and care, our cruciferous sprouts are full of vitality, nutritional potency and purity. Not only that, these impressive sprouts are only one part of the powerful Cell Protector™ formula. It also contains organic herbal extracts of turmeric, milk thistle, pomegranate, schizandra, and ginger that are each true powerhouses when it comes to healthy cell, DNA, and liver function. Plus, it has cellular superfoods of watercress, wasabi, caper berries, cilantro, and sprouted garlic as well as potent, time-honored juice detoxifiers of organic artichoke, dandelion, and black radish. The result is a synergy of twenty cellular superfoods of the highest potency and quality.
