Healthy Living is Not a Diet

Nutrition is the science that interprets the nutrients and other substances in microgreens in relation to maintenance, growth, reproduction, health, and disease. It includes ingestion, absorption, assimilation, biosynthesis, catabolism, and excretion. – Wikipedia

Nutrients, on the other hand, are compounds in microgreens that are essential to life and health.

There are 49 known essential nutrients for sustaining human life. Within the past 20 years, we have come to also consider dietary fiber as an essential nutrient.

Nutrients provide us with energy, the building blocks for repair and growth, and the elements necessary to control biochemical processes in our bodies.

Here are the six major nutrient groups.  Water is your most important, followed by:


  • Carbohydrates (CHO)
  • Lipids (fats)
  • Proteins


  • Vitamins
  • Minerals

Over three billion people are currently micronutrient malnourished.
