Key Benefits of Broccoli Sprouts + Sulforaphane.
Independent studies and trials from around the globe have showcased sulforaphane's incredible benefits, both for general health and for specific ailments.
Sulforaphane belongs to the plant-based group of disease-fighting phytochemicals known as isothiocyanates. Sulforaphane stimulates the production of important enzymes that neutralise free-radicals, which are unstable molecules in the body that can damage cells, protein and DNA.
Furthermore, sulforaphane is one of the most potent, naturally-occurring activators of our bodies' Nrf2 pathway, which is responsible for regulating the expression of over 200 genes including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory genes as well as genes that inactivate harmful compounds.
Broccoli sprouts are the most abundant natural-source of sulforaphane, yielding up to 100x more sulforaphane than mature broccoli. Some general-yet-powerful benefits include:
• Supporting immune function
• Supporting cardiovascular function
• Boosting brain function
• Boosting liver function
• Promoting weight loss
• Stopping + reversing hair loss
• Managing/reducing chronic inflammation and pain
• Slowing ageing + promoting healthy skin through heat-shock protein activation
• Protecting against air pollution through carcinogen excretion
• Encouraging detoxification
• Boosting energy (ATP) production
In short, broccoli sprouts are the ultimate power-food we should all be consuming. However, getting enough sulforaphane from eating broccoli sprouts to make any profound impact requires a lot of effort and a very large appetite.
Furthermore, growing broccoli sprouts to be as potent as possible is not an easy undertaking.
Even furthermore, you'll need to consume your sprouts raw. Heating (i.e. cooking) broccoli sprouts (and any other cruciferous veggies, including mature broccoli) deactivates the two precursors that produce sulforaphane: the myrosinase enzyme and glucoraphanin compound.
To deliver 20mg of sulforaphane to your body, you would need to consume approximately 100 grams of raw broccoli sprouts. That's more than three full cups.
Attempt to do this consistently every day, and it quickly becomes a time-consuming and expensive hobby. If that's your thing, more power to you... But if you're like most people, you probably don't want to spend a quarter of each day cultivating and consuming raw broccoli.
We sure didn't, and that's why we created Sulfora®.
Sulfora® contains 100% whole broccoli sprout powder optimised by an expert team for a high sulforaphane yielding. Notice the word *whole?* That means actual broccoli sprouts, not some cheap extract.
Utilising an innovative hydro-organic growth + production process, Sulfora® is one of the richest and most convenient sources of sulforaphane currently available.
Sulfora® flavoured editions produce a sulforaphane yield equal to approx. 3 full cups of raw broccoli sprouts, whereas Sulfora® Natural produces almost double this amount.
On top of the high sulforaphane yield, it's unbelievably easy to consume. Simply mix a sachet of Sulfora® Natural in a smoothie or juice of your choice (or water if you can bare the taste of raw broccoli sprout powder!)
Oh, you're on the go? No worries. Sulfora® flavoured-editions not only taste incredible, but are designed to be mixed with just water.
