Right now, we’re loving sprouting broccoli seeds because of their high Sulforaphane content.
Sulforaphane is a natural plant compound found in many cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and kale.
Paul Talalay, a researcher at John Hopkins, first realised Sulforaphane’s potential back in 1992. Since then, there have been over 1700 studies indicating the health benefits of Sulforaphane across a wide variety of diseases and concerns. It has been linked to health benefits, such as improved heart health and digestion. Sulforaphane may help with conditions such as cancer, diabetes and autism.
It also has a detoxifying action and several studies have shown its ability to remove toxins including heavy metals from the body.
Best of all, broccoli seeds are easy to sprout, just taking a few days, low maintenance with minimal equipment and cost involved. A super easy way to add valuable nutrients to your diet!
