Organic Sunflower Seeds


What are they and how do you use them?
The greens produced from unhulled black or striped sunflower seeds. A major ingredient in Hippocrates Green Juice, but also a tasty addition to salads.

What’s in them?
These humble greens contain 30 times more nutrients than the best organic vegetables:

  • Great for nervous system; potassium
  • A and B vitamins
  • Rare source of vitamin D (immune system) – converts cholesterol in the skin into Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
  • Significant amounts of phosphorus and calcium
  • Iron source
  • Copper – great for metabolising iron
  • Iodine
  • Good source of niacin
  • Lecithin, which helps transport fats
  • Linoleic acid for brain function, skin, hair growth and healthy bones
  • Phytosterols to reduce cholesterol, enhance the immune response and fight cancer

Who should eat them?
Judging by the list above, who shouldn’t???

Why I love them
Because of their phenomenal nutritional content. To be honest, I find the taste slightly overpowering, and so I only put them in my juices, but many people love their distinct, slightly-peppery flavour in salads.

This section has taken a great deal of time to compile. Why? Because it had to be right, only guiding you towards products I use myself on a regular basis, or, if it’s irrelevant to me, trusting the word of someone else I know who rates it highly, who has had cause to use the product themselves.

Wherever possible, the products will be organic – always my own personal first choice. If they are not, it’s more than likely that it is unofficially organic – not doused in harmful chemicals and sourced from a small producer who cannot afford the exorbitant costs it can mean to certify a product as organic.

And, wherever relevant, all products are vegan and cruelty-free. (You can’t get a vegan water pick, for example. I did try).

I will NEVER knowingly break these promises. But if you find out that any of the products listed in this section fall below par for whatever reason, please contact me.

And, for your information, some products featured are part of the agreement I have with Amazon Associates. This is an affiliate advertising program, which means that if you buy a product linked to one of my blog posts and decide to buy something from Amazon as a result, I’ll earn a SMALL percentage of the purchase price WITHOUT it costing you anything extra. If you’d prefer not to support It Shouldn’t Happen to a Vegan in this way, you can always search for any products mentioned on Google, rather than buying through my link.

But let it be said that I will NEVER provide links to products purely for reasons of profit. It will be because either I use the product myself, or I know someone personally who has benefitted from it.

Never miss a post!
