Classed as a super food, with an intense aromatic flavor and concentrated nutrient content, Microgreens are essentially baby vegetables grown to approximately 1–3 inches tall. They are scientifically proven to contain extremely high levels of powerful vitamins, minerals, and health-supporting components. Depending on the variety, Microgreens contain four to 20 times more nutrients than mature plants.
Microgreens can lower blood pressure. Foods that are high in fiber and vitamin K can be helpful in maintaining a healthy blood pressure, and microgreens are high in both of these important elements as well as other vitamins and minerals.
