Sunflower shoots contain vitamins A, B, D and E, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium and iron. They contain fibre, carbohydrates, protein and saturated fatty acids and essential amino acids. Amino acids deliver enzymes to cells to repair vital functions, including tissues. 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 a healthy heart and can slow down the ageing process. Vitamins C, E and selenium improve artery health and reduce high blood pressure. Magnesium in shoots supports the cardiovascular, nervous and immune systems. Sunflower shoots are rich in zinc. This boosts reproductive health and interacts with over 300 enzymes to help the body function effectively.
The sunflower shoots are grown in Estonia using organic seeds and organic soil.
