Basil is an excellent source of vitamin K and manganese and a very good source of copper, Vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids such as beta-carotene), Vitamin C, calcium, iron, folate, magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids. The flavonoids found in basil microgreens provides protection at the cellular level. Orientin and vicenin are two flavonoids that protect cell structures as well as chromosomes from radiation and oxygen-based damage, making this Micro a great DNA protector!

Basil has been shown to provide protection against unwanted bacterial growth. These anti-bacterial properties are associated with its volatile oils, which have been shown to protect against a wide variety of bacteria. And basil's volatile oils have been shown in studies to have anti-inflammatory properties by blocking the activity of an enzyme in the body called cyclooxygenase (COX). Many over the counter pain relieving medicines work in the same manner as COX. Therefore, basil can be an important food for individuals with inflammatory health problems like rheumatoid arthritis or inflammatory bowel conditions.
