An important key to excellent health is excellent digestion. The human body requires enzymes to digest food. Each whole, raw food contains naturally occurring enzymes designed to help break down that particular food.
Sprouted (germinated) nuts, seeds, and grains are living foods. When nuts, seeds, or grains are soaked, enzyme inhibitors are removed, and germination can occur. Germinated foods are easier to digest because the availability of enzymes is increased, enhancing the life force and vitality in the food, and making all of the nutrients readily available and easier to assimilate.
Whole raw foods are also rich in phytonutrients, enzymes, and antioxidants. Research suggests that phytonutrients may help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, certain cancers, and type 2 diabetes. Phytonutrients may also help slow the aging process and enhance eyesight and brain function. Other important keys to health are pure water, sleep, rest, exercise, laughter, and love!
