Sunflower microgreens contribute to blood formation, strengthen bones and nerves, and help to remove mucus from the bronchi and activate cells. Shoots are rich in antioxidants, which supports cell regeneration, promotes heart health and can slow down the ageing process.

This boosts reproductive health and interacts with over 300 enzymes to help the body function effectively.
