Broccoli Sprouts and Sulforaphane

Post by Vandevalk1 » Sun Nov 17, 2019 9:46 am

I've been supplementing with broccoli sprouts in my morning smoothies for a few years now and have been quite fascinated with its abundant compound sulforaphane and its anti aging benefits it has.

heres a really interesting clip on sulforaphane done by Dr. Rhonda Patrick on the JRE

Hopefully the quality of supplements has improved since the video was made in 2017. I notice many manufacturers state the percentage of sulforaphane as either 0.3% or 0.4%. I've just ordered some as a sirtuin activator.

I hear you, 2 years can mean a LOT OF CHANGE..

but since the sprouts have like 100-500x that of regular broccoli, maybe growing them is a good way to consume them.
Taking:
Resveratrol 400mg since June 2019; 600mg since October 1
NMN Sublingual 250mg since june 2019 500mg since September 2019; 600mg since Dec 1, 2019
NAD+ Nasal, appx 100mg per day since September 2019; 200mg per day beginning mid November

I grow my own. its cheap and very simple. Dr. Rhonda Patrick also recommends freezing them as this amplifies the abundance of sulforaphane even more so!

How many mason jars do you need for a continuous supply? Also how much do you take?

Totally agree, 2 years these days can mean so much change...can you believe that the first generation iPhone was released only 12 years ago, and since then, we have phones that can be more powerful than a standard laptop!

you can pay up to $5 CAD in the grocery store for 100g of broccoli sprouts. or I buy a 1 kg bag of sprouting seeds for 35 bucks and have sprouts for the year... easy decision.

I think they are quite easy to grow, since it is only the sprouts. You just need a few mason jars.

Here is a how-to:
