Sunflower Seeds

What are activated seeds?
An activated seed is a seed that has been soaked and sprouted to release its enzyme inhibitors.

Why should seeds be activated?
Enzyme inhibitors prevent nuts from sprouting at inappropriate times. This is an evolutionary mechanism that ensures seeds only sprout when environmental conditions will support the growth of young plants. Phytic acid and oxalic acid are examples of enzyme inhibitors, and are found in varying ratios depending on the seed. Of the four seasons, springtime is when we see nature come to life. Environmental conditions support the germination of seeds into seedlings. Rainfall is responsible for deactivating the enzyme inhibitors, which when coupled moderate spring temperatures supports the growth of freshly germinated seedlings into young plants.

These enzyme inhibitors also prevent the seeds from being over eaten by animals in the wild. In humans' regular consumption of seeds with enzyme inhibitors, can result in digestive distress in much the same way gluten does. Constipation, stomach cramps and bloating are examples of some issues people have eating raw, unactivated seeds. This is why seed activation is an important process.
