Wolffia has big benefits for your health.

Wolffia has big benefits for your health.

As Wolffia globosa is so nutrient-rich, this little green plant can have a surprisingly significant impact on your health.

Wolffia nutrition exceeds other superfoods in many ways. It's a great source of:

  • Vitamin A, C, E, K
  • Vitamin B1, B2, B3 (Niacin) B5, B6, B12
  • Folate, beta carotene
  • Lutein, zeaxanthin
  • Phosphorus, potassium
  • Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc
  • PUFA's, Omega 3, omega 6
  • Antioxidants

Wolffia has bioavailable vitamin B12 absorbed well by humans.

This is a gamechanger for plant foods, as it's generally understood that Vitamin B12 is only available from animal-based foods.

Amazingly, Wolffia also possesses bioavailable vitamin B12, making it one of the few non-animal sources of the vitamin. Bacteria and some fungi are the only lifeforms we know of that produce biologically active B12.

To find B12 in the tissues of plants hints that it was either taken up by the plant or somehow produced in the plants. (Like how B12 producing bacteria are in animal host's guts for instance).
