Broccoli (Brassica oleracea), is a member of the cabbage family (Brassicaceae), also referred to as cruciferous (“cross-bearing”) vegetables, because of the four-petaled shape of their flowers. The coaching most of us received as children to eat our broccoli was for good reason as it contains vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and is an excellent source of beneficial bioactive phytonutrients.

Among the beneficial phytonutrients found in some strains of broccoli, is a substance called glucoraphanin. The sprouting seeds of broccoli store a concentrated amount of this nutrient, to supply the growing plant. When the sprouts undergo mechanical stimulation, such as chopping or chewing, glucoraphanin comes in contact with the enzyme myrosinase, and hydrolyzes to a potent isothiocyanate compound referred to as sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is the subject of hundreds of scientific studies and has demonstrated numerous properties beneficial to human health. Of particular interest is sulforaphane’s ability to activate proteins that regulate antioxidant responses. Broccoli sulforaphane induces production of certain enzymes involved in antioxidation and have been shown to interfere with some viruses being able to insert genetic material into host chromosomes. Sulforaphane also showed the potential to help the body maintain healthy blood sugar levels, support cardiovascular health, provide neuroprotective effects, encourage detoxification of toxic airborne pollutants, and exert a unique mode of viral defense.
Just one quarter teaspoon of BioPure’s Broccoli Sprout Powder dissolved in a glass of water or juice, is a convenient and easy-to-use way of getting a daily dose of these beneficial plant nutrients. When taking any nutritional supplement, we recommend the oversight of a licensed healthcare provider to monitor any sensitivities or interactions with other products being used. Occasionally, a patient will take too much Broccoli Sprout Powder and experience some stomach upset. If this occurs, the dose should be lowered, or stop taking the product altogether.
