The Secret to Clear, Gorgeous Skin – and how to create it with home-grown goodness
Our skin reflects what is happening in the digestive system. Therefore, it is important to “plant” lots of good bacteria to help digest food, and to add lots of high-quality fiber, just as our ancestors did.
Sprouts are a great food for good digestion or for people who have a weak digestion. Sprouted foods have easy to absorb vitamins, minerals, proteins, and enzymes to break down food.
Eating Sprouts = Flawless Skin
Broccoli/cabbage/radish/cress/kale (Brassicaceae family plants) sprouts have a cellular detoxifying substance called sulforaphane in them, which can prevent cancer cells from proliferating. Sulforaphane is being researched as an anti-aging medicine. All sprouts also stimulate the natural cell detox process, which helps with oxidation damage (from environmental toxins & sun damage). So, cellular detox foods = clear, gorgeous young skin.
When you germinate a seed, it increases the antioxidants dramatically. Antioxidants help with free-radical damage on a cellular level, allowing our body to age slower. So, antioxidants = reduction in lines on our face + beautiful skin.
Sprouts have the highest amount of phytonutrients per calorie of any food. Phytonutrients are important for preventing almost all diseases.
