What You Need To Know About NutraSprout™ Flax Powders
Research has confirmed what has been known for centuries - flax seed is an outstanding nutritional food source. What isn't well known is that flax seed is difficult to digest and its nutrients poorly absorbed... unless it is sprouted.
Flax seed has natural enzyme inhibitors to prevent digestion. This means the seed can be eaten, pass through the body and still grow into a plant. This is nature's way of ensuring animals, birds and humans distribute seeds. For example, when a person consumes whole flax seed in bakery products like bread, there is little nutritional benefit.
The way to overcome the problem created by enzyme inhibitors is to SPROUT THE SEED.
Sprouting creates enzymes which start the seed on its way to becoming a plant. When flax seed begins to grow, the natural enzyme inhibitors that protect the seed from being digested are significantly reduced.
Sprouting flaxseed biologically activates the seed. The plant proteins, essential fatty acids, starches and vitamins are now BIO-AVAILABLE for human digestion resulting in better nutrient absorption. Sprouting also increases the seeds vitamin content which naturally stabilizes the essential fatty acids. Because of the increased level of bio-availability, theses essential oils are absorbed more efficiently.
