My utopian world has commercials on TV touting the benefits of wholesome natural foods the same way we now hear endless drug commercials.
Only the vegetable and whole food commercials won’t have the laundry list of side effects where the announcer has to speak at warp speed to fit them all in.
Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and kale, contain a phytochemical called sulforaphane
Sulforaphane is a ROCK STAR. It should be a household word. Here’s why.
neutralizes toxins which means it’s good for the liver
has anti cancer and anti-tumor properties
is an antioxidant which means it protects the heart
has anti-inflammatory properties
helps with diabetes by stabilizing insulin
So along with a regular intake of cruciferous vegetables, I’ve been getting my sulforaphane from broccoli sprouts.
It turns out that that broccoli sprouts can contain up to 100 X more sulforaphane than broccoli.
Translation. That means that eating 1 ounce of sprouts gets you the same amount of sulforaphane as eating 6 lbs of broccoli.
Broccoli sprouts have a slight peppery flavour that’s more similar to radishes than mature broccoli. Use them as a garnish, throw them into salads, sandwiches or smoothies.
Sprouts are easy to grow at home, check out the easy sprouting procedure HERE.
Sulforaphane is just one tiny example of the power of real food.
