And unfortunately, these natural chemicals are quite hard on the stomach. Soaking Nuts and Seeds Makes Them Better.
Soaking and sprouting increases the digestibility and nutritional benefits of seeds, nuts, grains and legumes exponentially. Sprouts are high in vitamins, minerals, and are very alkalizing. They are also great additions to salads, stir-frys,wraps and sandwiches. Delicious, good for you, amazing!
