About

This Mix (new in 2009) really should be named Crystal's Mothers Mix as it was suggested to us by a very thoughtful customer. Mother's Mix is basically a Leafy Sprout Blend, but it is full of nutrients and other things that are essential for pregnant and nursing moms. It tastes fantastic, and anyone and everyone can enjoy that! Thanks Crystal!!!!

As mentioned above, Mother's Mix was originally suggested by a loyal customer.... In her original email, Crystal sent all these reasons why Mother's Mix is a good idea:

Most of these are the ones recommended by Dr. James A. Duke in his book The Green Pharmacy. Fenugreek not only enlarges the breasts (as you mentioned) but has been shown to increase milk flow. Garlic has been used to treat mastitis - much better than having antibiotics come through the breast milk (of course that could result in the child's tolerance to antibiotics when they need it). Also "In addition, garlic helps babies nurse better. If breastfeeding mothers eat a few cloves of garlic within an hour before nursing begins, babies attach to the breast more readily, stay there longer, suck more and drink more milk, according to studies done at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia. Alfalfa - like fenugreek is also oestogenic. I.e. produce more milk. Sesame - also good for increasing milk flow. (and ounce for ounce best source of calcium on the planet.) And finally Broccoli. (bet you thought I forgot!) I don't have a source to quote but did read that eating broccoli sprouts every other day locks in heart health for baby.  But wait, there's more! From The World's Healthiest Foods: A Birth Defect Fighter Especially if you are pregnant, be sure to eat broccoli. A cup of broccoli supplies 94 mcg of folic acid, a B-vitamin essential for proper cellular division because it is necessary in DNA synthesis. Without folic acid, the fetus' nervous system cells do not divide properly. Deficiency of folic acid during pregnancy has been linked to several birth defects, including neural tube defects like spina bifida.

Notes from Sproutpeople All of the seeds in this mix are from sources which are certified organic. The other Broccoli related thing here is that the text above (from The World's Healthiest Foods) refers to mature (fully grown) Broccoli - not Broccoli sprouts. We know from RESEARCH that Broccoli sprouts contain up to 50 times the antioxidant content as mature Broccoli, and we know other sprouts to contain higher concentrations of nutrients than their mature vegetables, so the way we see it; you'll be WAY better off with the sprouts. We're talking Living Food here! Lastly - the Garlic mentioned above is mature Garlic. The seed we use and sell does not grow Garlic - it grows Garlic Chives. Though these crops are related (same Family and Genus), they are not the same, so do keep eating your garlic too =;-D

  • My Favorite So Far
    I have tried most of the mixes and this one is my favorite. I think it is pretty mild compared to other mixes. I like the way the sprouts look as they grow. This mix has some thicker looking sprouts than others. I will probably end up combining this with some of the stronger tasting sprouts like broccoli. This company is amazing. I truly love all the sprouts I have purchased from here except for the pumpkin seeds I ordered last year were bitter. Other than that, perfection.

  • Great for Lettuce Replacement
    Because of stomach problems, I cannot eat lettuce but love salad. This is my new salad base and I love it. Sometimes I add radish or broccoli sprouts to give it a little extra zing. Will keep this as a staple in my home. Getting others to try it was easy because it tastes so good.

  • Great Name! and Perfect conglomeration of flavors
    The name made me buy this mix. My mother gave me my love of sprouts and I couldn't resist the name! All of the individual flavors blend together to make a more complex but neutral flavor than sprouting individual seeds. I have noticed that if I sprout only broccoli or radish I get tired of the flavor after two days but this mix is more complex because all of the flavors melt together and it takes me months to get tired of it (have I even gotten tired of the flavor once?) I wish I could buy this in the bulk section of my local grocery store--I'm in Gainesville, FL by the way ;)
