— The pea microgreens are rich in phosphorus, vitamins B2, B1, B9, B6, E, C, PP, K, protein, fiber.
Fiber excellently cleanses the body of of debris and toxins and serves as nourishment for intestinal microflora. Our bacteria use it to produce vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, pantothenic acid, vitamin PP, biotin, vitamin K2, and folic acid.
Vitamin B2, which is contained in the microgreens, is responsible for the redness of the lips and the area around the mouth. Cracked lips and inflammation in the corners of the mouth occur due to its deficiency. B2 deficiency manifests itself in the form of problem skin.
Vitamin B1 converts sugars into energy, and its deficiency causes swelling. Intestinal bacteria synthesize all vitamins, but if the balance of microflora is disturbed, the beneficial microbes lack nutrition and the vitamin supply will be depleted. Therefore, a healthy intestinal flora is the most important condition for the preservation of beauty.
