GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- It's time to talk about sprouts.

They are one of the most nutritionally-dense foods you can eat. They help your body fight cancer and fat. And, they are inexpensive and easy to grow all year round.

Owner of Grand Rapids Natural Health and naturopathic doctor Kelly Hassberger joined WZZM 13 health reporter Valerie Lego on the WZZM 13 News at 5 to talk about sprouts.

Experts estimate that there can be up to 100 times more enzymes in sprouts than uncooked fruits and vegetables. Enzymes are special types of proteins that act as catalysts for all your body's functions. Extracting more vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids from the foods you eat ensures that your body has the nutritional building blocks of life to ensure every process works more effectively.
