Herbal Supplements for Good Health and Fitness-XI

The next herbal supplement in my list is:

SPROUTS:

STARPOWER:

When life is sleeping, it is in its seed form. But when it is nourished with water, the seed begins to germinate and sprout life. Sprouts hold a special place in naturopathy, macrobiotics, raw food diets and the vegan diet as the best way to consume any type of grain or seed. They contain vitamin C and B complex, active enzymes, digestible proteins and macro-nutrients. Several anti-cancer therapies suggest eating sprouts to prevent recurrence.

PRACTICAL CONSUMPTION:

Mung and Moth sprouts are the most popular. Add onion, tomato, mint, green chilli, some seeds like sesame or nuts. We can also add yellow and red bell peppers. Steam sprouts only if you find it difficult to eat them raw. Choose organic sprouts for best results.

PRECAUTIONS:

People with a tendency to gas should avoid eating sprouts of heavy grains and stick to lighter sprouts of mung. Pregnant women should avoid raw foods.
