In today's video, we will discuss the issue of sprouted grains and if they are really healthy. I will go straight to the chase. My answer is: sometimes and in moderation.
There are three reasons why sprouted grains are better than regular grains:
1. Phytic acid is found in regular grains, which is an enzyme inhibitor. (If you soak the beans, the sprouting beans unlock the nutrients your body can absorb).
2. Gluten in proteins becomes more digestible.
3. Regular grains are rich in carbohydrates, specifically a type of carbohydrate called amylopectin. Amylopectin affects blood sugar levels and may increase your risk of diabetes.
In general, germinated grains are the best option, but it is not yet perfect or what I would consider a healing food. If you are fighting an autoimmune disease, removing the pimples for a while would allow your body to heal. In general, if you can limit your grain intake to just a couple of times a week, in moderation, you will consume a healthy diet.
