Microgreens Help Prevent Cancer

It’s no secret that cancer is a serious global health problem. In fact, cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide, with an estimated 9.6 million cancer deaths in 2018 alone. While there is no surefire way to prevent cancer, some studies suggest that certain lifestyle choices can help reduce your risk. For example, eating a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables has been linked to a lower risk of developing cancer. And according to some research, microgreens may offer even more cancer-preventing potential than their mature counterparts.

Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, and kale are particularly high in cancer-preventing compounds like isothiocyanates. Microgreens are simply young cruciferous plants that have been harvested before they reach maturity. Because they are so young, microgreens contain higher levels of these cancer-preventing compounds than mature cruciferous vegetables. In fact, one study found that microgreens may contain up to 40 times more isothiocyanates than their mature counterparts.

So, as I’ve said before. Broccoli microgreens are still number one when it comes to health benefits! However, there are other great greens on the block that you should be growing: red cabbage and mustard greens (or any other cruciferous vegetable). These veggies seem like a surefire way of getting your family healthy.

Usually, when a seed provider puts a blend together, they take in the consideration of the growth cycle of the seeds. I know several of these seeds grow fairly quickly. Especially the radish. I can’t wait to try them!

More to come, hopefully, a great review of these seeds. Stay healthy, and keep on growing!
