Health Benefits:

1. Sprouting makes wheat seeds contain 300% more proteins responsible for improving metabolism, boosting energy, and keeping blood sugar levels stable.
2. Only three days of spouting increase the density of vitamins dramatically: the content of vitamin E increases 300%, of vitamin C – 600%, and the content of vitamin B becomes 1000% higher. The content of vitamin B17 known for its prevention of cancer is 100% higher than in unsprouted seeds.
3. Originally, wheat is rich in carbohydrate and causes excessive mucus, which can have unpleasant consequences such as chronic cough, crusty eyes, constantly stuffy nose, and bad breath. In the process of spouting, carbohydrates are converted to natural sugar, decreasing the amount of mucus being formed.
