Microgreens included in this Micrology kit:
Pak Choi - a pale green Microgreen with a slightly sweet, robust flavour. Belonging to the cruciferous family of vegetables and first cultivated in China thousands of years ago, it is now available all over the world. An absolute power green containing vitamin C, E and beta-carotene. Unlike many other fruits and vegetables Pak Choi contains traces of the essential micronutrient – the mineral selenium, which helps certain antioxidant enzymes to work. These enzymes remove reactive oxygen species (free radicals) and so prevent oxidative damage to organs and tissues. Selenium also helps the hormone thyroxine, which regulates metabolism, to work. Selenium also prevents inflammation, may decrease tumour growth rates but there is insufficient scientific evidence yet to support that claim. It mitigates the effects of certain toxins such as mercury.
