Growing vitamin-rich greens
Greens are some of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet, so eating them every day can help keep your energy high and stress levels low. By growing your own vitamin-rich greens at home, you’re taking a big step towards improving your health.
A common problem for grocery store shoppers is that the produce they buy isn't as vitamin-rich as it could be. Fruits and vegetables tend to lose 50% of their healthy nutrients within a week of being harvested. The Click and Grow 25 provides you with a constant supply of fresh, leafy greens that you can harvest and enjoy as soon as they’re ready.
Leafy greens are especially good at covering for deficiencies in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in your diet. It's recommended that adults should eat 1.5 cups of any dark green vegetable, along with 4 cups of other green vegetables per week. With the Click and Grow 25, it’s super easy to do this, especially with our membership ensuring you always have fresh greens to grow.
Here are a just a few examples of the vitamin-rich greens you can grow with us:
A rich source of vitamins A, C, K, as well as calcium, folate, potassium, magnesium and iron. Just one cup (10gr) of Arugula covers 12% of an adult’s recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamin K and 14% of vitamin A.
Naturally rich in vitamins A, B, C, dietary fiber, iron, magnesium and potassium. One cup of baby leaves (36 gr) covers 16% of your RDA for Vitamin A, 14% for Vitamin C and a whopping 332% for Vitamin K.
An excellent source of vitamins A, C, K in addition to antioxidants, flavonoids and dietary fiber. A 56 gr cup of leaf mustard covers 13% of your RDA for vitamin E, 50% for vitamin A and completely covers your vitamin K needs. It’s also naturally rich in iron, calcium and magnesium.
A 20 gr cup or red kale leaves covers 7% of your RDA for vitamin A, 26% for vitamin C and 90% for vitamin K. It’s also a reliable source of calcium, magnesium and iron.
Growing cleaner, safer food
Foodborne illness is a serious issue. According to the World Health Organization, approximately 600 million people become sick every year as a result of contaminated food.
When you grow food in your Click and Grow 25, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that no harmful substances are used. Before making plant pods, we test each batch of smart soil against 500 chemicals commonly used in agriculture to make sure it’s completely safe. Unlike much supermarket produce, your Click and Grow greens haven’t been treated to prolong their shelf life or exposed to transport-related pollution.
