In this video, we’re going to talk about the best form of broccoli.

What is so special about broccoli? Broccoli contains a compound called sulforaphane.

This compound activates the NRF2 pathway, which helps you express over 200 genes. In turn, this helps increase detoxification and reduce inflammation and oxidation.

Sulforaphane also has potent anti-cancer properties. It helps your body excrete carcinogens. So not only does sulforaphane help reduce your risk of cancer, but it also helps get rid of things that increase your risk of cancer.

Additionally, sulforaphane can help support a healthy cardiovascular system.

Let’s take a look at broccoli vs. broccoli sprouts.

– Broccoli (100g) –
• Sulforaphane: 55-171mg
• Calcium: 42mg
• Vitamin A: 567IU
• VItamin C: 89mg
• Iron: 700mg

– Broccoli sprouts (100g) –
• Sulforaphane: 1153mg
• Calcium: 78mg
• Vitamin A: 300IU
• VItamin C: 58mg
• Iron: 720mg

The absorption rate of broccoli is only 19%, while the absorption rate of broccoli sprouts is 74%.

As you can see, broccoli sprouts are far more nutrient-dense. They contain ten times more sulforaphane and twice the amount of calcium.

You can get broccoli sprouts in powdered form, which may be easy to consume regularly compared to raw broccoli sprouts.

Since sulforaphane is a fat-soluble compound, it’s best to consume sulforaphane-rich foods with a fatty meal or some healthy oil.
