What is Sulforaphane?

Sulforaphane can come from a variety of vegetables including kale, brussels sprouts, and cabbage. Although, highest levels are found in broccoli, specifically broccoli seeds and 3-day old sprouts. They are the most potent and naturally occurring inducers of phase ll enzymes to help protect cells from oxidative stress, electrophiles, UVA & UVB inflammation, and radiation. Sulforaphane is also an NRF2 protective protein activator that enables body detoxification and promotes cellular integrity. It has anti-inflammatory properties, supports the immune system and has anti-aging benefits. It functions very differently than traditional antioxidants, such as Vitamins A, C, & E, that neutralize one free radical at a time and are then used up. Sulforaphane stimulates a continuous and long-lasting chain of antioxidant reactions in the body, up to 72 hours after the Sulforaphane is no longer present. It is therefore considered an indirect antioxidant.
