Brassica Blend

With a mix of Arugula, Mustard, Broccoli and Radish, this is a tasty addition to wraps, sandwiches, salads or wherever you want a little extra zip! We named this mixture after Brassica (brás-si-ca), the genus of plants in the mustard family to which the seeds in this mix belong. This microgreen mix has high levels of sulforaphane, a cellular detoxifier that may prevent cancer and rejuvenate the immune system*.

Nutrients

Brassica vegetables are rich in indole-3-carbionl, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells. Researchers at the University of California at Berkeley have recently discovered that 3,3′-diindolylmethane in Brassica vegetables is a potent modulator of the innate immune response system with potent antiviral, antibacterial and anticancer activity*.

They are also a good source of carotenoids, with broccoli having especially high levels.

Arugula – Very high in protein, vitamin B6, amino acids, iron and calcium

Broccoli – Rich in vitamins K, C, B6, and E, folate, dietary fiber phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium

Mustard – A powerhouse of protein and a great source of vitamins A, B6, and C, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and amino acids

Radish – Great protein source and chocked full of vitamins A, B6, C, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc
