Dr. Mercola – Fermented Broccoli Sprouts – 30 Capsules
Fresh broccoli and broccoli sprouts are two of the healthiest foods you can eat. Both these foods contain high concentrations of a broad category of compounds called glucosinolates‚ of which two compounds‚ glucoraphanin and sulforaphane‚ have become the focus of more than 650 scientific publications.Sulforaphane is considered the leading compound in broccoli and broccoli sprouts responsible for many of its health benefits‚ including:•Cell health throughout your body.•Your body’s normal detoxification processes.•Gut health and a healthy gut microbial balance.•Healthy joint cartilage and comfortable movement.•Bladder and prostate health.However‚ in order to receive optimal benefits from this key compound‚ you’d have to eat about two pounds of broccoli a week! And common food handling practices and cooking often destroy a key enzyme essential to convert glucoraphanin in broccoli to sulforaphane.If you have healthy gut flora‚ the conversion to sulforaphane can still occur in the absence of this key enzyme. Unfortunately‚ many people have less-than-optimal gut flora for a number of reasons.Fermenting the broccoli in advance‚ as done in our Fermented Broccoli Sprouts formula‚ converts the glucoraphanin to sulforaphane‚ so you don’t need to depend on your gut microbes to accomplish the task. In essence‚ fermentation does exactly what a healthy gut would do – provide your body with bioavailable sulforaphane.These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
