Surprising benefits of eating sprouted Mung Beans
Bacteria in the large intestine make some vitamin K, but not enough to meet your daily needs, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. Mung bean sprouts are a good source of vitamin K, with 1 cup of raw sprouts containing 34 micrograms, which means men get 28 percent of their recommended daily intake, while women gain 37 percent. Vitamin K is essential for the process of blood clotting. It also regulates bone mineralization and helps maintain bone density.
