Properties of a depurative salad

This salad is especially hot because of some sulphurous compounds called glucosinolates. These substances are characteristic in all cruciferous vegetables such as arugula, mustard, cress and radishes. Scientific studies show that they possess antioxidant and anticancer properties.

The spicy flavor in traditional Chinese medicine, has rubefacient properties, provides heat to the body and protects the liver. Suitable for people with cholesterol.

Alfalfa sprouts provide living energy to the body. Macrobiotic cuisine includes these fermented foods on its menus daily.

Alfalfa contains good levels of vitamins and very important nutrients, such as essential fatty acids.
