Broccoli Sprouts

Fermented / Dr Mercola
30 Capsules

Broccoli Sprouts offer potent support for detoxification & cellular health, courtesy of a phytochemical Sulforaphane. To benefit from this key compound, you’d need about 2lbs of broccoli a week. A compound found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli called glucoraphanin must first be transformed by the enzyme myrosinase. Myrosinase is essential for the conversion of glucoraphanin to sulforaphane.

Fermenting the broccoli in advance converts the glucoraphanin to sulforaphane. Cooking destroys the enzyme myrosinase in Broccoli. Yet the conversion to sulforaphane can still occur in the absence of myrosinase if you have healthy gut flora... 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.

Over 650 scientific publications suggest certain key compounds found in broccoli sprouts and broccoli may play a potent role in supporting cellular and total body health.* Get these widely acclaimed bioavailable nutrients now, without sprouting seeds or eating pounds of whole broccoli plants. Fermented Broccoli offers unparalleled nutritional benefits... The problem is that if you purchase fresh broccoli sprouts at the store, they can be very expensive. Since they are simple and inexpensive to grow at home, Ancient Purity encourages you to sprout your own Broccoli Seeds.

Researchers have discovered that Broccoli and Broccoli Sprouts especially contain exceptionally high levels of 2 compounds that may offer unprecedented potential health benefits. Just because you may not eat sprouts or regularly consume heaps of fresh Broccoli doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of these key nutrients. 

Fresh Broccoli and Broccoli sprouts contain high concentrations of a broad category of compounds called Glucosinolates. Two of these compounds, Glucoraphanin and Sulforaphane, have become the focus of many scientific publications. Sulforaphane, identified in 1992, is now considered the leading compound in Broccoli Sprouts and Broccol, and is responsible for many of the potential benefits.

Research on Sulforaphane

Much of the research focuses on these compounds’ antioxidant properties. While most antioxidants in your body have very short lifespans, these potent antioxidants have the ability to recycle and actively scavenge free radicals in your cells for up to three days. Sulforaphane especially plays an important role in your body’s detoxification processes. It maintains your body’s own removal of free radicals and cellular debris by its unique ability to support the final stage of normal detoxification. Ancient Purity believe this extensive research helps erase any doubt that Sulforaphane offers tremendous potential for your cellular health and your body’s normal detoxification processes.

  • Precursor glucoraphanin boosts cell enzymes to help protect against damage.
  • Sulforaphane helps support normal cell function or DNA methylation.
  • Sulforaphane plays a role in activating more than 200 different genes.
  • Sulforaphane helps support normal cell division and growth.
  • Sulforaphane’s potent antioxidant activity may help slow age-related immune function decline.
  • Sulforaphane supports the normal healthy production of blood vessel-protecting enzymes.
  • Sulforaphane helps protect your muscles against exercise-induced damage.

Sulforaphane-Thieves That Can Rob You of Valuable Potential Benefits
It’s not always easy to get the sulforaphane where it’s most needed... To get sulforaphane, a substance in broccoli and sprouts – glucoraphanin – must be converted with the help of an enzyme called myrosinase. Typically, you need myrosinase to get sulforaphane.

Here’s how the process works: Glucoraphanin → (Myrosinase) → Sulforaphane.
Unfortunately, there are several conditions that can hinder this process, preventing the valuable compound from getting where it needs to go, your cells. First off, you need to eat about two pounds of broccoli a week to get significant amounts of sulforaphane.

Broccoli Sprouts over Broccoli

It’s much easier to get the Super Nutrition of this plant by eating fresh Broccoli Sprouts. They are far more nutrient-dense than whole broccoli. After three days of sprouting, Broccoli Sprouts contain 10 - 100 times the amount of precursor glucoraphanin. Another potential pitfall with regular broccoli is that typical handling and preparation can destroy many of the fragile beneficial nutrients. If any of broccoli’s key compounds are destroyed or becomes inactivated, you can lose out on many valuable potential benefits

Standard Broccoli can't compete with Broccoli Sprouts.

  • Broccoli can lose 80% of its precursor glucoraphanin just 10 days after harvest
  • Broccoli cut into florets loses its precursors twice as fast as whole head broccoli
  • Steaming broccoli longer than five minutes can destroy its myrosinase
  • Boiling or microwaving broccoli longer than 30 to 60 seconds destroys most of its myrosinase
  • High-temperature blanching and subsequent freezing may destroy broccoli’s myrosinase

Even if you do happen to destroy broccoli’s myrosinase through common food handling and cooking practices, all may not be lost... When you chop or chew broccoli, glucoraphanin combines with the enzyme myrosinase to form sulforaphane. However, your body still doesn’t immediately benefit, using a sulphur bond, sulforaphane attaches to a sugar molecule. When myrosinase breaks off the sugar to release the sulforaphane, a sulfur-grabbing protein can inactivate it.

This is where healthy gut bacteria come into play... IF you have healthy gut flora, that can help release the sulforaphane. Yet that’s a big "if,” as everyone has varying levels of healthy gut microflora balance for a wide range of reasons. Scientists have now discovered a way to help make the sulforaphane in broccoli sprouts and broccoli more bioavailable, no matter the state of your gut microbial balance!

By fermenting the broccoli sprouts, the glucoraphanin is converted to sulforaphane in advance. This is great news for the many people who may have less-than-optimal gut health. You don’t need to blindly rely on the “good” microbes in your gut – or the presence of myrosinase – to convert the glucoraphanin into sulforaphane. Fermentation does exactly what a healthy gut would do – provide your body with bioavailable sulforaphane.

Fermented Broccoli Sprouts are the perfect source for a large dose of Broccoli Sprouts’ Valuable Compounds Dr Mercola's Fermented Broccoli Sprouts contains both fermented organic broccoli sprouts and activated organic whole plant broccoli. With both, you receive standardised levels of Broccoli’s important compounds to help you maximise Broccoli Sprouts’ and broccoli’s many potential benefits.  Each dose of Fermented Broccoli Sprouts contains standardised amounts of:

  • Sulforaphane        140 mcg.
  • Glucoraphanin       350 mcg.
  • Myrosinase           105 mcg.

Rather than using extracts that can require harsh extraction and processing methods (including the use of solvents or chemicals), we use a special low-temperature drying process to get the real thing: nutrient-intact powdered broccoli sprouts and whole plant broccoli. This helps preserve essential myrosinase activity to help you receive high levels of sulforaphane! And because we use fermented broccoli sprouts, the conversion to sulforaphane happens before you even take it.

Fermented Broccoli Sprouts Go Way Beyond typical ‘Broccoli Supplements’

Dr Mercola Fermented Broccoli Sprouts is made from organic broccoli sprouts and broccoli.

Eager to take advantage of sulforaphane’s potential benefits for cellular health, the pharmaceutical industry has wasted no time coming out with their own synthetic form of sulforaphane. 

And there’s no shortage of so-called “broccoli pills” either – or often futile attempts to put sulforaphane into capsules. 

But do they all offer the same potential benefits? 

While broccoli supplements often contain glucoraphanin, they typically lack myrosinase and they are not fermented!

We’ve already seen how the lack of myrosinase can affect how much sulforaphane you end up with. 

Luckily there have been some studies to look at the absorption of the different ways to use Broccoli as a supplement.

dr mercola UK broccoli is goood

One study in healthy men contrasted the differences in absorption of sulforaphane from broccoli powder without myrosinase versus broccoli sprout powder with the enzyme. Subjects consuming only broccoli powder, rich in glucoraphanin but lacking myrosinase, had a 24-hour urinary retention of sulforaphane metabolites of only 19%. Those consuming broccoli sprout powder that was rich in the enzyme myrosinase showed a urinary sulforaphane recovery of 74% – nearly a four-fold increase over the first group.

If you're still not convinced about how good this supplement is, here is 10 ways this Fermented Broccoli Sprouts supplement stands apart from other Broccoli Sprout or Broccoli Supplements. Also how Fermented Broccoli Sprouts differs from other broccoli sprout or broccoli supplements. 

  • Contains fermented broccoli sprouts for optimal sulforaphane conversion and bioavailability
  • Is made with only organic broccoli and organic broccoli sprouts
  • Uses sprouts harvested at their peak to concentrate the important plant nutrients to help support healthy lipid levels and cardiovascular health*
  • Is triple-standardized for sulforaphane potential, glucoraphanin and myrosinase activity
  • Ensures a substantial quantity of glucoraphanin together with myrosinase
  • Is prepared using a unique,low-temperaturee drying process to preserve myrosinase activity
  • Is a concentrated powder and not an extract, so no solvents or harsh extraction processes are ever used
  • Is a clean formula with NO harsh chemicals, bioengineered ingredients, pesticides or herbicides
  • Avoids magnesium stearate – an unnecessary flow agent with no nutritive value and unknown toxicity.
  • Stored in a glass container so free of plastic and the negative consequences to the environment.

The fact that the sources for both the sprouts and whole broccoli plant are organic deserves mentioning twice… After all, if you’re trying to support your body’s detox processes, the last thing you want to do is add to your pesticide and herbicide load with conventionally grown broccoli. That just makes your body work harder. Dr Mercola's organic Fermented Broccoli Sprouts supports your body’s normal detox process, not work against it!
