Did you know that broccoli sprouts are one of nature’s top cancer-fighting foods? They are packed with a powerful anti-cancer and cancer-fighting compound, Sulforaphane which boosts the body's protective enzymes and flushes out cancer-causing chemicals.

I love eating sprouts plain, tossing them in salads, and of course adding them into my smoothies to make them nutrient dense (no, you can’t taste them)! Broccoli sprout benefits may include:

  • Fight and prevent cancer – including throat, lung, colon, prostate, breast, bladder, skin cancers

  • Benefit the heart

  • Support strong bones

  • Fight H. pylori infection

  • Detoxify the body

  • Improve respiratory function

  • Can be a part of a multiple sclerosis diet

  • Protect your brain
