Broccoli sprouts have just recently become popular after it was discovered that they abound with sulforaphane, an amazing cancer-fighting phytochemical. This delivery of powerful, disease-fighting phytonutrients is what really gives these organic heirloom broccoli sprouts seeds their power!
This means that with broccoli sprouts, you can get a therapeutic dose of phytonutrients in a whole food form from eating 1-2 cups blended per day one hour before any meal is consumed and you can take it in combo with our Super Immune Activator© with Raw Milk Kefir and GcMAF.
Our cells must first receive vitamin D in order for it to be biologically active (or bioavailable) in the body. The way that cells receive vitamin D is through the vitamin D receptor and the Broccoli Sprouts liquified in a blender will provide you the sulforaphane you require to actively receive the D Vitamin that allows the Super Immune Activator© with Raw Milk Kefir and GcMAF to do its function of restoring your ability to absorbed GcMAF.
So, why is sulforaphane so important?
It controls your genes!!!
Sulforaphane is the most powerful activator of a genetic pathway that regulates over 200 genes! These genes are largely responsible for directing detoxification pathwaysand as a result up regulates the activation of antioxidant genes, deactivates inflammatory genes, deactivates carcinogen’s and increases their excretion, and reduces cellular aging and damage by decreasing the oxidative burden of reactive oxygen species.
These genetic changes work together to powerfully change the health of our cellular environment! Read on for specific pathways and systems that are impacted by the potent phytochemicals in these nutritional gems.
Sulforophane has been shown to cross the blood brain barrier where it has potent anti-inflammatory effects, which support mood and cognition, and can reduce cerebral edema.
Positive effects of sulforophane have been documented on cancers of the prostate, breast, and ovaries. A 2010 study showed that sulforaphane targets breast cancer stem cells and down-regulates cancer cell renewal. Sulforaphane has also been shown in clinical trials to slow the growth of prostate cancer.
Cruciferous vegetables contain another molecule, indole-3-carbinol, which is an important compound that helps deactivate potent estrogens that promote tumor growth and are an important intervention for all estrogen sensitive cancers.
Detoxification plays an important role in all degenerative conditions, including all cancers. Sulforaphane approaches detoxification at the genetic level. It increases production of glutathione, which is the most powerful, free radical-scavenging antioxidant made in the human body. It also increases clearance of harmful substances we encounter, by genetically up regulating phase 2 of liver detoxification, which is where toxic substances are neutralized and excreted from the body.
How Much Should I Eat?
The recommended serving size of 1 cup of broccoli sprouts contains about 30 mg of sulforaphane. The sulforaphane is created when the sprouts are masticated, so it is important to chew them well, blend, or juice.
