Folate, which is found in radish microgreens, is believed to promote cardiovascular health by breaking down homocysteine, an amino acid that is thought to promote atherosclerosis (fatty deposits in blood vessels). About half of people with cardiovascular disease have elevated homocysteine levels, compared with only 5% of the general population. In addition to providing tons of folate, radish micros contain plenty of vitamin B6, another nutrient that has been shown to break down homocysteine in the body.
Vitamin C rich foods, such as radish microgreens, can offer benefits for the skin. Our skin is constantly bombarded with free radicals created by cigarette smoke, pollution, drugs, heavy exercising, toxins, stress, and UV radiation, but vitamin C helps destroy these harmful molecules. In addition, vitamin C helps the body produce collagen, a protein that keeps your skin smooth, elastic, and wrinkle-free. As part of the natural aging process, our collagen production slows down, which is why especially older people may reap extra beauty benefits by eating radish sprouts and other foods that are rich in vitamin C.
All of these nutrients are extremely important for skin, eyes, fighting cancer, and have a long list of other health benefits associated with them.
Radish microgreens have a full radish flavor and a strong peppery spice of a mature radish. They are crisp, crunchy and make a great addition to so many dishes.
