You already know how passionate I am about growing and eating sprouts. There’s one type of sprout in particular that has a delicious, mild taste and offers unparalleled nutritional benefits: broccoli sprouts.
The problem is that if you purchase fresh broccoli sprouts at the store, they can be very expensive. Since they are simple and inexpensive to grow at home, I encourage you to sprout your own broccoli seeds.
But I know not everyone has the time or inclination to grow his or her own.
And that’s too bad as researchers have discovered that broccoli – and broccoli sprouts especially – contain exceptionally high levels of two compounds that may offer unprecedented potential health benefits.
Just because you may not eat sprouts or regularly consume heaps of fresh broccoli doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of these key nutrients.
I’ve found a way for you to get the important intact nutritional benefits of broccoli sprouts and whole broccoli plants without having to grow your own sprouts or eat pounds of broccoli each week.
Don’t get me wrong... I highly encourage you to sprout your own seeds and eat fresh organic broccoli as often as possible. It’s hard to beat these two wholesome foods for their phytonutrients and fiber.
However, there may be times when you want far larger amounts of these two incredible compounds that I’m going to tell you about.
They are turning broccoli sprouts and broccoli into high-demand superfoods, and now there’s a simple way to get their goodness…
The Focus of Over 650 Scientific Publications, These Key Compounds Offer Valuable Potential Support for Your Body*
Fresh broccoli and broccoli sprouts are two of the healthiest foods you can eat, but do you know why?
Both contain high concentrations of a broad category of compounds called glucosinolates.
Two of these compounds, glucoraphanin and sulforaphane, have become the focus of over 650 scientific publications.
Sulforaphane, identified in 1992, is now considered the leading compound in broccoli sprouts and broccoli, and is responsible for many of the potential benefits:
- Supports cell health throughout your body*
- Supports your body’s detoxification processes*
- Helps protect cells, tissues and DNA from free radical oxidative damage*
- Supports healthy normal cholesterol levels*
- Supports gut health and a healthy gut microbial balance*
- Supports healthy joint cartilage and comfortable movement*
- Supports bladder health*
- Supports prostate health*
Before we go any further, I want to make sure you fully appreciate how these compounds support your body’s detoxification processes and cellular heath.*
What These Nutrients May Offer for Your Body’s Detoxification Processes and Cell Health
Much of the research focuses on these compounds’ antioxidant properties.
While most antioxidants in your body have very short lifespans, these potent antioxidants have the ability to recycle and actively scavenge free radicals in your cells for up to three days.
Sulforaphane especially plays an important role in your body’s detoxification processes. It maintains your body’s own removal of free radicals and cellular debris by its unique ability to support the final stage of normal detoxification.*
Research shows that:
- Precursor glucoraphanin boosts cell enzymes to help protect against damage*
- Sulforaphane helps support normal cell function or DNA methylation*
- Sulforaphane plays a role in activating more than 200 different genes*
- Sulforaphane helps support normal cell division and growth*
- Sulforaphane’s potent antioxidant activity may help slow age-related immune function decline*
- Sulforaphane supports the normal healthy production of blood vessel-protecting enzymes*
- Sulforaphane helps protect your muscles against exercise-induced damage*
I believe this extensive research helps erase any doubt that sulforaphane offers tremendous potential for your cellular health and your body’s normal detoxification processes.*
However, it’s not always easy to get the sulforaphane where it’s most needed...
Sulforaphane-Thieves That Can Rob You of Valuable Potential Benefits
To get sulforaphane, a substance in broccoli and sprouts – glucoraphanin – must be converted with the help of an enzyme called myrosinase. Typically, you need myrosinase to get sulforaphane.
Here’s how the process works:
Glucoraphanin → (Myrosinase) → Sulforaphane
Unfortunately, there are several conditions that can hinder this process, preventing the valuable compound from getting where it needs to go – your cells.
First off, you need to eat about two pounds of broccoli a week to get significant amounts of sulforaphane!
It’s easier with fresh broccoli sprouts… They are far more nutrient dense than whole broccoli. After three days of sprouting, broccoli sprouts contain 10 to 100 times the amount of precursor glucoraphanin.
Another potential pitfall with regular broccoli is that typical handling and preparation can destroy many of the fragile beneficial nutrients.
If any of broccoli’s key compounds are destroyed or becomes inactivated, you can lose out on many valuable potential benefits.
Here are some ways you can miss out with regular broccoli:
- Broccoli can lose 80 percent of its precursor glucoraphanin just 10 days after harvest
- Broccoli cut into florets loses its precursors twice as fast as whole head broccoli
- Steaming broccoli longer than five minutes can destroy its myrosinase
- Boiling or microwaving broccoli longer than 30 to 60 seconds destroys most of its myrosinase
- High-temperature blanching and subsequent freezing may destroy broccoli’s myrosinase
Even if you do happen to destroy broccoli’s myrosinase through common food handling and cooking practices, all may not be lost...
Mimics What a Healthy Gut Would Do
When you chop or chew broccoli, glucoraphanin combines with the enzyme myrosinase to form sulforaphane.
However, your body still doesn’t immediately benefit...
Using a sulfur bond, sulforaphane attaches to a sugar molecule. When myrosinase breaks off the sugar to release the sulforaphane, a sulfur-grabbing protein can inactivate it.
This is where healthy gut bacteria come into play...
IF you have healthy gut flora, that can help release the sulforaphane.
Yet that’s a big "if,” as everyone has varying levels of healthy gut microflora balance for a wide range of reasons.
Scientists have now discovered a way to help make the sulforaphane in broccoli sprouts and broccoli more bioavailable, no matter the state of your gut microbial balance!
By fermenting the broccoli sprouts, the glucoraphanin is converted to sulforaphane in advance.
This is great news for the many people who may have less-than-optimal gut health. You don’t need to blindly rely on the “good” microbes in your gut – or the presence of myrosinase – to convert the glucoraphanin into sulforaphane.
Fermentation does exactly what a healthy gut would do – provide your body with bioavailable sulforaphane.
And that’s exactly what we’ve created with my Fermented Broccoli Sprouts... dependable, viable sulforaphane!
My Fermented Broccoli Sprouts: The Perfect Source for a Larger Dose of Broccoli Sprouts’ Valuable Compounds
My Fermented Broccoli Sprouts contains both fermented organic broccoli sprouts and activated organic whole plant broccoli.
With both, you receive standardized levels of broccoli’s important compounds to help you maximize broccoli sprouts’ and broccoli’s many potential benefits.*
Each dose of Fermented Broccoli Sprouts contains standardized amounts of:
- Sulforaphane 140 mcg
- Glucoraphanin 350 mcg
- Myrosinase 105 mcg
Rather than using extracts that can require harsh extraction and processing methods (including the use of solvents or chemicals), we use a special low-temperature drying process to get the real thing: nutrient-intact powdered broccoli sprouts and whole plant broccoli.
This helps preserve essential myrosinase activity to help you receive high levels of sulforaphane!
And because we use fermented broccoli sprouts, the conversion to sulforaphane happens before you even take it!
Why My Fermented Broccoli Sprouts Aren’t Your Ordinary ‘Broccoli Pills’
Eager to take advantage of sulforaphane’s potential benefits for cellular health, the pharmaceutical industry has wasted no time coming out with their own synthetic form of sulforaphane.
And there’s no shortage of so-called “broccoli pills” either – or often futile attempts to put sulforaphane into capsules.
But do they all offer the same potential benefits?
While broccoli supplements often contain glucoraphanin, they typically lack myrosinase and they are not fermented!
We’ve already seen how the lack of myrosinase can affect how much sulforaphane you end up with.
One study in healthy men contrasted the differences in absorption of sulforaphane from broccoli powder without myrosinase versus broccoli sprout powder with the enzyme.
Subjects consuming only broccoli powder, rich in glucoraphanin but lacking myrosinase, had a 24-hour urinary retention of sulforaphane metabolites of only 19 percent.
Those consuming broccoli sprout powder that was rich in the enzyme myrosinase showed a urinary sulforaphane recovery of 74 percent – nearly a four-fold increase over the first group!
