Benifits of Sprouts

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

Do you want to look not a day over 60 when you're matching toward your 90th birthday? According to Naturopathic Medical Association, gerontologist believe that 120 years could be the average human lifespan instead of today's average of 75%. The present research indicates that one of the secrets to long and healthy life lies in eating high enzyme foods everyday.

As we age, our body produces less and less of its own enzymes. This general decline is a fundamental cause of aging and many of the disease associated with it.  Many of us have felt a reduction in the efficiency of our digestive system as we grow older, due to a decrease of digestive enzymes. 

While all raw fruit and vegetables contain the enzymes needed for the digestion of their own nutrients, sprouts have a much higher concentration than raw vegetables of fruit. Although you can buy alfafa sprouts and mung bean sprout at your local supermarket, you'll have a very hard time finding lentil sprouts. You have to make them yourself. In fact, they are much cheaper than the sprouts you can buy. 

Sprouted lentils are much easier on the digestive system and are preferable for those who want to watch their weight. They contain fewer calories than their non-sprouted ,as they use up their own energy in the sprouting process. 

During the sprouting process, enzymes convert stored interactive nutrients into a sort of nutritional super-fuel:carbohydrates into simple sugars, complex nutrients into amino acids, and fats into fatty acids which are easily digested compounds. 

Sprouted lentils are an excellent source of Vitamins A, B,C, and E as well as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, selenium and zinc. When sprouted the total vitamin content its increased specially Vitamin C. Sprouted lentils are good source of fiber and are natural source of anti oxidants, preventing environmental pollutants from causing harm to your body, And with anti-bacterial and inflammatory properties, they slow the aging processes.

This is a very informative post. I have no idea what a lentil looks like or whether they can be sourced in the Philippines. I will have to make a research in the internet for more information on this. Thanks for the informative post. God bless you all always.
