One of the benefits of sprouts is that you can grow them yourself. Not only does this save you money, but when sprouts are grown in your home you also get really fresh juice that contains no pesticides.

You may find it beneficial to wrap your sprouts in a lettuce leaf before juicing to help maximize the juice obtained from the sprouts.
