Broccoli microgreens well if you have ever met me then you know that I am all about broccoli microgreens. Why? Well, I wish I had a unique case but refuse to watch friends die from STUPID Cancer. I may not be a Dr. so please listen to yours, there is a product it is simple, it grows and it kicks cancers butt according to several studies I have read. My main goal in life is just to help those who want to be more healthy know the truth and eat the broccoli.
There is robust epidemiological evidence for the beneficial effects of broccoli consumption on health, many of them clearly mediated by the isothiocyanate sulforaphane. So is it the dose or the source that matters most?
Isothiocyanates are some of the most important plant compounds you can get in your diet. This video made by Dr. Rhonda Patrick is the most comprehensive case for them that has ever been made.
Where do we get sulforaphane?
Sulforaphane (SFN) is a sulfur-containing compound found in cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, radish, Brussels sprouts, Bok choy, turnip, arugula /rocket, kohlrabi, kale, watercress, rapini, mustard greens, horseradish, and more ) but most abundantly in broccoli sprouts
Benefits of sulforaphane
It neutralizes toxins. Phytochemicals like sulforaphane are antioxidants that cancel out free radicals. Free radicals are tiny particles that weaken and damage healthy cells. They form in your body because of pollution, UV rays, food additives, and preservatives, and even through natural processes like digestion.
It reduces inflammation. Because sulforaphane neutralizes toxins, it also calms inflammation in your body. Inflammation has been linked to several kinds of cancer.
It may protect your DNA. Some studies have shown that sulforaphane blocks mutations in DNA that lead to cancer.
It may slow tumor growth. Sulforaphane has been shown to reduce the ability of cancerous cells to multiply. That means it may slow tumor growth or reduce its ability to spread to other parts of your body.
It is readily available. You don’t have to do anything complicated to access the sulforaphane in cruciferous vegetables. All you have to do is steam the veggies or eat them raw. Roasting them also retains most of the nutrients.
