Hello there, 

I have only recently come to understand why Broccoli Sprouts are one of my most popular products on the Nourishing Hub. After doing my own research I am completely converted to one of the worlds most understated superfoods.

Broccoli sprouts are a nutritional powerhouse.They have a myriad of health benefits from immunity boosting to treating Autism Spectrum Disorder. Its nutrient dense profile has become the focus of many researchers and clinicians. Broccoli sprouts are very bio-available with about 80% of what you consume being absorbed by your cells.
 
Broccoli sprouts are part of the cruciferous vegetable family.  One of the main differentiating factors of Broccoli 
sprouts is that they contain significant amounts of the bioactive compound sulforaphane, the magic ingredient responsible for a range of health advances. Over a thousand published studies have identified sulforaphane as one of the most potent food-derived molecules there is.
 
Defending Against Disease
 
Sulforaphane is said to have anti-cancer properties. In 1997 the New York Times published an article about a large-scale study that demonstrated broccoli sprouts contained a concentrated anti-cancer substance – sulforaphane. It has been found that Sulforaphane inhibits certain pro-carcinogenic enzymes in the body. [1]
 
Sulforaphane has been shown to activate a protein called NrF2. NrF2 influences over 2,000 genes associated with protecting our cells and increasing our cell’s production of a range different defensive proteins. 
 
When NrF2 is activated a large number of protective and detoxification cellular enzymes 
are mobilised. NrF2 functions as a powerful antioxidant, fighting free radicals at a considerable rate.
 
Sulforaphane has been found to influence gene expression (i.e. how genes are switched on an off) in certain parts of DNA that influence a number of disease-fighting functions. [2]
 
Treating Autism Spectrum Disorder
 
Broccoli sprout powder has become extremely well regarded following a number of studies that have shown broccoli sprouts to have reduced the behaviour symptoms of ASD. [3]
 
A number of testimonials from parents and caregivers of those taking broccoli sprouts for ASD noted that subjects had improved language ability, were calmer, less stressed, had more body control and were happier.
 
It was sulforaphane that was identified as the compound that correlated with the 
improved behavioural outcomes.
