Sprout-Powered Sulforaphane Powder (100g)
What is sulforaphane & why is it special?
Sulforaphane is a naturally occurring compound found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and kale. The compound has been getting a lot of attention lately and rightly so! It has been linked to
- slow the growth of certain cancer cells
- helps strengthen and regrowth of bones, which may be beneficial to those living with or at risk of osteoporosis
- may help reduce chronic inflammatory disease
- manage symptoms of some mental health illnesses such as schizophrenia
- may help improve behavioural symptoms for children suffering from autism spectrum disorder
Why can't I just eat broccoli or kale?
Sulforaphane is sensitive to temperature and light. This means that cooked broccoli or kale has a negligible amount of sulforaphane. Our sprout powders are dried in low temperature to ensure that all the nutrients are retained.
Broccoli sprouts are shown to contain up to x10 more sulforaphane than mature broccoli.
Why sprout powders?
Apart from drying sprouts in low temperature, our sulforaphane blend has been formulated to be neutral-tasting, making them incredibly convenient and versatile. We'd added pumpkin seeds in our Sulforaphane blend to neutralise the sharp tastes of broccoli and kale sprouts. This makes our Sulforaphane blend a great addition to your breakfast smoothies or soups alike!
We also don't believe in adding any ingredients that we can't pronounce and therefore you won't find any cheap fillers or preservatives in our blends. 100% sprouts only!
Recommended intake of sulforaphane
There is no formal recommended dosage for sulforaphane but according to some preliminary research, some antioxidant activity was seen at 0.5 mg of sulforaphane per kg of bodyweight.
We recommend 2 tablespoons of Sprout powered Sulforaphane a day which contains 20.0mg minimum of sulforaphane.
