Broccoli sprouts are a cruciferous plant and the earliest forms of broccoli before they form their thick stalks and recognizable florets. Research studies have shown that Broccoli Sprouts contain 50 times more sulforaphane than fresh broccoli. Sulforaphane is photochemical that is well studied to be anti-cancer, brain boosting, good for the heart and so much more! There’s evidence to suggest that sulforaphane can prevent DNA damage that leads to cancer, and in studies on mice, sulforaphane seems to prevent inflammation that can diseases, like Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease. Here’s the basic scientific explanation: Cruciferous plants contain compounds called glucosinolate, which convert into isothiocyanates when eaten and chewed. All cruciferous veggies contain glucosinolates, but broccoli sprouts have an insane amount — about 10 to 100 times more than most cruciferous vegetables.
