“The health of the physical body should be the concern of every aspirant to the higher life. Spiritual evolution requires refinement of man’s vehicles. In order to attain purification of the physical organism, the body must be provided with proper nutrition.”
While reading through various books, magazines and articles on the internet I have come across the healing properties, importance of, and complete joy of growing sprouts.
Sprouts * Sprouts * Sprouts
All different kinds!!!
Why is the importance of SPROUTS?
Sprouts are very nutritious because they contain all elements a plant needs for life and growth. The endosperm of the seed is the storehouse of carbohydrates, protein, and oil. When the seed germinates, these become predigested amino acids and natural sugars upon which the plant embryo feeds as it grows to maturity. When used as food, the life force is released and supplies the energy which is capable of generating healthy cells in the body and supplying us with new vigor and life.
What are their healing properties?
Sprouts can retard the aging process, since they contain ample amounts of male and female hormones, available in their most assimilable form. Research shows that sprouts are highest in vitamin and mineral content. Sprouts should occupy a prominent place in the diet. A seed sprouted increases their nutritional value many times over.
Not only are sprouts healthy, they bring immediate beauty to your day!! Who doesn’t need beauty and love????

There are two types of sprouts…
SEEDS – contain a great deal of phosphorous, an important mineral for spiritual aspirants, who want to increase their alertness and mental abilities. Phosphorous is also necessary for healthy bones and teeth, a fact which makes sprouted seeds desirable for babies and children. Sunflower seeds are rich in vitamin B and D and all the essential amino acids. Sesame seeds are a rich source of calcium, iron, phosphorous, niacin, and protein.
GRAINS – These sprouts contain vitamins C, E, B complex, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, sodium, potassium, protein, enzymes, chlorophyll, and possibly B-17. (In its cooked form, wheat is unacceptable to some individuals, causing mucus congestion, allergic reaction, and constipation. In its sprouted form, a large portion of starch is converted to simple sugars, making it a wholesome food acceptable to many who would otherwise need to eliminate wheat as a food source). Buckwheat, a food rich in lecithin and rutin.
So there you have it! A little bit of info on sprouting. I will continue to post information about sprouting as time goes on. I will be sprouting Sunflower Seeds and Peas first. (If possible I will do a time lapse viewing of the sunflower sprouts.) Wouldn’t that be cool?! I just have to figure out this entire camera thing. Technology! Technology!
Thanks for reading!!!
