Why broccoli sprouts? Should I be interested, even excited, about getting my hands on some of them, if so, why?

It's pretty common knowledge that broccoli in its mature form is very good for the body. Much of the disease fighting properties of the mature flower come from the high levels of Vitamin K and C which are powerful antioxidants and help build and repair immune function.

The sprouts have a very different immune, cancer fighting nutrient. It begins in the seed and as the plant matures it weakens. So the sprouts much have higher levels of Sulforaphane than the mature plant. Sulforaphane is a compound that has impressive cancer-preventing and cancer-fighting properties. Here is an article that explains in detail the value of eating the sprouts raw and thoroughly chewed.

Here is another great option for adding sprouts to your diet. Vegetable juicing is simple and adds so much value to your diet. Check out this blog post from the Family Cow tribe member that supplies us with the deodorants that we offer.
