Green Gram sprouts are loaded with energy. Green gram (or mung beans/moong) can be found in a variety of hard salads, both sweet and savory. The mung bean is one of the healthiest members of the legume family and sprouting it can take it to a completely new level! It has an array of nutrients including folate, fiber, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin B6. It's also said to be a powerful defense against several chronic, age-related conditions - controlling diabetes, preventing cardiovascular diseases, obesity, and even cancer.

In Ayurveda, mung beans are recommended for all the three fundamental doshas that make up one’s constitution. Sadhguru says that

when one thinks about food sources and getting the most bang for your nutritional buck, there’s nothing more concentrated than nuts, legumes and seeds because they contain everything needed to become a healthy, vibrant plant.
