Sunflower Greens (also known as sunflower sprouts) are a great tasting micro-green that are grown from sunflower seeds. Sunflower greens are a complete protein and are considered to be the most balanced of all the sources of essential amino acids. This form of protein is ideal for helping to build the skeletal, muscular, and neurological system in the body.
Sunflower sprouts are a nutritional powerhouse and are packed with vitamins A, E, D, and B-complex and are rich in minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, and zinc. They are a great source of chlorophyll which helps to nourish the blood, repair cells and tissues, activate every cell in the immune system, and remove toxins from the body.
Sunflower greens contain lecithin which can significantly improve memory and brain function, help to keep the liver and kidneys healthy, aid in vitamin absorption, and can bind fats and cholesterol to water so that they can be removed from the body more easily. Sunflower greens are good for reducing blood pressure, increasing the elasticity of arteries, preventing heart disease, reducing inflammation, and boosting the immune system.
They are also very important for helping to reduce stress damage to the body and to keep the nervous and neurological system strong and stable. Sunflower greens are known to be a great expectorant which can help to relieve congestion from the lungs and sinuses. Sunflower greens are easy and quick to grow in your own home and are an incredible way to include fresh, inexpensive, and highly nutritious greens into your diet.
Sunflower greens can often be found in the produce section of your local health food store and are a great addition to your fresh salads, juices, smoothies, sandwiches, and wraps.
