It gives you plenty of vitamin C, as well as B vitamins, potassium and secondary plant compounds, such as mustard oil glycosides, which have an anti-inflammatory effect. Its tender leaves and mild flavor make it a star even as a raw food. In addition, it has a less flatulent effect than its relative, the white cabbage, and is therefore very digestible.

What makes walnuts so healthy?
Walnuts are among the healthiest nuts around. They are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids and essential amino acids, which our body cannot produce itself, but absolutely needs. Walnuts also provide you with potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, B vitamins and vitamin E, which also has an anti-inflammatory effect.
What are the disadvantages of raw walnuts?
If you eat walnuts raw, you know that they sometimes taste quite bitter and can be quite heavy on your stomach. They also contain a lot of phytic acid. In nature, phytic acid has the task of binding the minerals in the nut and protecting them from being washed out. For you, this means a disadvantage: Although you take in many minerals with the walnut, you hardly get anything out of it, because the minerals are bound and therefore often excreted unused.
Advantages of activated walnuts
When a walnut germinates in nature, the phytic acid is rapidly broken down. This leaves the nut with all the minerals it needs to grow. The exact same thing happens in our 2DiE4 activation process. We allow our raw organic walnuts to sprout so that the phytic acid is broken down and then gently dry the nuts. The minerals contained in the walnut are now freely available, your body can absorb them and get the maximum benefit. In addition, the activated 2DiE4 walnuts are easier to digest, incomparably good in taste and deliciously crunchy.
