A MIRACLE FOOD IN TIMES OF SURVIVAL
Sprouts are widely recognized as being some of the most nutritious foods on the planet.
And since sprouts are so easily digested and absorbed by your body, you can be confident that all those vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients are actually being absorbed, instead of passing through your body.
There are essentially three different categories of sprouts. Some are rich in vitamins and minerals.
These are “greens.” Others have fewer vitamins and minerals but are filling and provide lots of protein.
We call these the “high protein” sprouts. And lastly, there are those that have high fiber content and enzymes to help with digestion and assimilation.
These are the “fiber/health” sprouts. Here’s a list of the sprouts you’ll be growing with the Survival Sprout Kit and how they can help you stay alive and healthy:
- Alfalfa – 5 lbs: Vitamins A, B, C, E, K, and minerals. These vitamins are essential for healthy reproduction, vision, immune function, healthy bones, and regulating bodily functions.
- Radish – 2 lbs: Potassium, Vitamin C. Potassium is essential for regulating healthy blood pressure, is involved in muscle contraction (movement), and nerve impulses (the brain telling the body what to do).
- Broccoli – 3lbs: Vitamins A, C, antioxidants, and minerals. These nutrients help regulate brain function, aid in absorption and use of Vitamin E, and are involved in collagen production (cell building and replacement—your body’s ability to heal).
- Garbonzo – 5 lbs: Protein, fiber, and carbohydrates. These beans are your go-to sprouts for emergency fresh food, fast. They even provide enough calories and nutrients for a few days of subsistence diet.
- Green Lentils – 5 lbs: Vitamin C, Protein, Iron, and other minerals. Lentils are another incredibly healthy sprout, and essential to good muscle and cardiovascular health.
- Black Eyed Peas – 5 lbs: Carbohydrates, fiber, and protein. These are another “meal in a handful” and provide essential calories and protein for a subsistence diet.
- Mung Bean – 5 lbs: Protein, Iron, Potassium, and Vitamin C. This sprout is integral in muscle health and retention.
- Pea – 10 lbs: Protein, vitamin C, and fiber. Fiber helps the digestive system. Protein and amino acids help the body grow, repair, and build new muscle.
- Wheat – 10 lbs: Carbohydrates, protein, Vitamins B & E, and phosphorous. Phosphorous is a VITAL nutrient used in DNA synthesis—the building block of the body’s ability to grow, repair, and replace old cells. Phosphorous is also needed in order for the body to use carbohydrates and regulate the pH of the blood.
- Fenugreek – 5 lbs: Iron & Phosphorous. In this one sprout are nutrients to support DNA replication, repair, and production of blood cells.
Listen up: This is the most important part of this message. These seeds are not organic. That means the small farmers who grew them did not fill out the paperwork necessary to get a government sticker. So we can’t and won’t say “organic.” However, you should know that we buy all our seeds from small farmers that our seed buyer knows personally. (Absolutely no big corporations, even if they have government stickers.) These folks are fiercely independent folks who resent Big Ag as well as big government intrusion into their lives.
You should also know that we believe these farmers also grow the very best seeds, with the highest germination rates. This means more sprouts per pound and more bio-available nutrients when you need them most. Our goal is bring you the highest quality sprout seed directly from the farm to your kitchen with no middlemen. This is our way of trying to treat you the way we would like to be treated.
Perfectly Balanced Countertop Garden!
We selected these specific sprouts because, in combination, they’ll provide you with the perfect balance of nutrition, protein, fiber, and calories. Plus, once they’re sprouted and consumed, you’ll be getting loads of vital nutrients — far more than if you relied solely on dehydrated and canned food.
Here’s a perfect example: In the American Cancer Society NEWS, Paul Talalay, MD, says, “broccoli sprouts are better for you than full-grown broccoli, and contain more of the enzyme sulforaphane which helps protect cell integrity.”
Get this: 3-day old broccoli sprouts have 20-50 times more antioxident properties than mature broccoli!
When you have limited resources, every bit of your time and energy needs to go to ensuring the best possible health for you and your family. When you’re preparing for hard times— perhaps even the complete break-down of food distribution systems, you have to be smart about what you’re storing, growing, and eating—so that every calorie counts. Every bit of food you grow—that you devote resources to—will help you be healthier and survive.
Sprouts are perfect foods for people with limited resources. Once sprouted, the nutritional content of seeds literallyexplodes! Within days of germinating, sprouts have nutrient density orders of a geometric magnitude higher than the seeds alone. Plus, sprouts contain all kinds of immune-supporting nutrients like linoleic acid… Coenzyme Q-10… folic acid… essential amino acids… Vitamins A, C, B, D… easily digestible protein… and much, much more! (If every nutriential benefit were listed here, it would fill pages. Literally.)
As you can see, without these essential nutrients, your body cannot function. Without these vitamins, your body cannot repair itself from injury, your nervous system won’t work properly, your bones won’t develop. Heck, your brain will even stops sending signals to the rest of your body.
Pretty serious stuff.
And just in case you think it would be easier or cheaper to stock up on a bunch of multivitamins, hopefully I can make you reconsider. You see, just about everybody in America has been convinced that taking vitamins in pill form is actually good for you. But I can tell you that most vitamins are not nearly as healthy as most people think. In many cases, they may actually be harmful.
The Great Vitamin Conspiracy
Vitamins are often packed into the form of a hard pill. Have you ever wondered how those vitamins are made? Basically, the process involves two factors: heat and pressure.
During the vitamin-making process, both extreme heat and intense pressure are used to pack all the vitamins and minerals into a hard pill. This process effectively kills any of the living enzymes, phytonutrients, and probiotics you would otherwise get. Which means that…
Unlike Sprouts Most Pills
Are Basically… Dead!
When you cook foods like vegetables, you kill the living nutrients inside the food. That’s why it’s better to eat raw plant foods than it is to eat cooked, roasted, or dehydrated plant foods. Raw food is alive! That’s also why you want raw foods in your arsenal during tough times.
The same principle is true of vitamins in pill form. If the ingredients used to make a vitamin have been heated up and pressurized, the living nutrients have been killed. Then, when you take the vitamin, there is actually an added burden placed on your digestive system to try to break down the vitamin and absorb whatever it can.
