Sulforaphane is a sulfur-rich compound found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, bok choy and cabbage. It is activated when vegetables are chopped or chewed. The highest levels of sulforaphane are found in raw vegetables.
Research indicates that broccoli extract provides sulforaphane which has a range of health benefits, including detoxification by neutralizing toxins and assisting the body in elimination and anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation has been linked to cancer development and mutations in DNA that can lead to cancer. Inflammation can also lead to narrowing of the arteries due to plaque buildup.
