Microgreens are just greens that haven’t reached full maturity yet. They start as sprouts (which also have big health benefits). Then they turn into microgreens. Microgreens eventually become baby greens. And baby greens eventually turn into those big, leafy greens you usually buy at the grocery store.
Microgreens are chock-full of nutrients. They contain vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene and other nutrients. And in some cases, they contain as much as 40 times more of these nutrients than fully-grown greens. That means if you’re not a fan of greens, you could possibly get away with eating less of them but still pack on the nutrition by opting for this micro version.
Microgreens are made from veggies that have been harvested before maturation, which is typically from 7 to 14 days after germination. The end result is a much smaller green that is one to three inches tall, with a more intense flavor and highly concentrated nutrient profile. These tiny version are packed with all of the vitamins and minerals you’d find in a full-grown plant or herb, making these a bonafide superfood! By just adding a small amount to salads, wraps, sushi, bowls, dips or smoothies it can instantly boost the nutritional value of what you are eating.

What are the benefits of mushrooms (mycelium)?
According to mycologist Paul Stamets, mycelium can save the world. The benefits of mycelium are numerous but one of the most recognizable forms are mushrooms, the fruiting body of mycelium. Known for its antiviral capabilities, a diet rich in mushrooms (eaten and in tinctures) is bound to prepare your immune system for any health issues common in our modern era.
