The Health Benefits of AJ Broccoli Sprouts

There is a beautiful phytochemical named sulforaphane (also referred to as SFN) found in cruciferous vegetables but with the highest amounts found in broccoli sprouts. It is well studied to be anticancer, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and may even protect against aging and diabetes. The best part? We no longer need high-priced supplements to get this important phytochemical, we just need to eat live veggies like AJ broccoli sprouts!

 

A Great Detoxifier

Sulforaphane in broccoli sprouts boosts the body’s natural detoxification mechanisms in several ways. As an indirect antioxidant, it boosts the antioxidant capacity of cells rather than just by providing antioxidants.

Sulforaphane activates the Nrf2 and ARE pathway, which leads to increased cellular glutathione in the body. Since glutathione is the master antioxidant, this has far-reaching benefits for the body.

 Supporting the Heart

We already know that sulforaphane is a potent antioxidant and that it increases the body’s own antioxidant producing capabilities. For this reason, it is very anti-inflammatory and can reduce reactive oxygen species by increasing oxygen levels. Both of these mechanisms make it good for the heart and may explain why studies show it has a heart-protective effect.

But sulforaphane also benefits the heart in a couple other ways. It releases hydrogen sulfide (H2S), when chewed. This compound donate sulfur where necessary and for this reason has a cardio-protective effect.

Studies also found that it helped reduce blood pressure levels in those with hypertension and lowered triglycerides.

Finally, sulforaphane reduced levels of total cholesterol, LDL-C, CRP, and LDH.

 Promoting Weight Loss

As an Nrf2 activator, sulforaphane may also promote weight loss by “amelioration of obesity through enhancing energy consumption by browning of adipocytes, and reduction of metabolic endotoxemia through improving gut bacterial flora,” according to a 2014 study at Kanazawa University.

In other words, sulforaphane helps fight obesity by changing energy consumption in the body and by improving gut flora.
