Fresh broccoli and broccoli sprouts are two of the healthiest foods you can eat. Both these foods contain high concentrations of a broad category of compounds called glucosinolates, of which two compounds, glucoraphanin and sulforaphane, have become the focus of more than 650 scientific publications.
Sulforaphane is considered the leading compound in broccoli and broccoli sprouts responsible for many of its health benefits. However, in order to receive optimal benefits from this key compound, you’d have to eat about two pounds of broccoli a week! And common food handling practices and cooking often destroy a key enzyme essential to convert glucoraphanin in broccoli to sulforaphane.
If you have healthy gut flora, the conversion to sulforaphane can still occur in the absence of this key enzyme. Unfortunately, many people have less-than-optimal gut flora for a number of reasons.
Fermenting the broccoli in advance, as done in our Fermented Broccoli Sprouts formula, converts the glucoraphanin to sulforaphane, so you don’t need to depend on your gut microbes to accomplish the task. In essence, fermentation does exactly what a healthy gut would do – provide your body with bioavailable sulforaphane.
Our Fermented Broccoli Sprouts contains both fermented organic broccoli sprout powder and activated organic broccoli whole plant powder. With the whole plant powder, you receive standardized levels of the most important compounds of broccoli to help you maximize its many potential health benefits.
