Broccoli sprouting!! 🌱🌱🌱 So many amazing benefits to eating these little green sprouts and they actually taste pretty good (think radish / cress I had mine on avocado toast this morning 😋) They have very high levels of nutrients and enzymes, which provide the body valuable energy to detox and strengthen the immune system...Anyways I've been so impressed by the information I have found on them I wanted to share an insert from an article online I enjoyed reading.. begs the question "are broccoli sprouts are the new green juice?!" #linkinbio
"According to the Hippocrates Health Institute, the other key benefits of sprouts include: – Increased vitality, energy and vigor from the large amount of enzymes. – 10 to 100 times more enzymes than fruits and vegetables when eaten within the first seven days of being sprouted. – Powerful antioxidants which help fight free radicals and aging. – The minerals and nutrients are easily absorbed into the body.
While there are many excellent sprouts, there is a specific reason why I buy organic broccoli sprouts.
What broccoli sprouts offer is sulforaphane, a powerful anti-cancer compound that helps fight and reduce the risk of developing cancer.
Dr. Paul Talalay, Professor of Pharmacology at Johns Hopkins University, found that 3-day old broccoli sprouts consistently contained 20 to 50 times the amount of chemoprotective compounds than those found in mature broccoli heads. And sulforaphane is the reason why."
