Benefits of Sprouted Ingredients
Our Sprouted seed bars and bites are unique because of the sprouted oats and seeds we use. Sprouting is very beneficial because grains and seeds have a natural protective coating that helps them endure the rigors of nature and grow into healthy plants but renders them hard to digest and absorb nutrients. Sprouting simply removes these natural barriers unlocking all the good stuff for your body to use. Other bliss inducing benefits of sprouting include:
- Antioxidants are substances that help protect cells from free radicals which cause cell deterioration, aging and disease. When seeds and grains are sprouted their antioxidant value dramatically increases which help protect our cells and the body from premature aging and disease.
- Enzymes are protein molecules that aid in metabolizing the nutrients in our food and sprouting brings these enzymes to life.
- Sprouting also breaks down proteins into amino acids so our bodies don’t have to do it. This makes it easier for our bodies to digest and absorb the seed’s minerals.
- Seeds and nuts are a powerful source of Omega 3 fatty acids and sprouting makes for better Omega-3 absorption which is critical for brain function and reducing inflammation.
