Jed Fahey, Sc.D. on Isothiocyanates, the Nrf2 Pathway, Moringa & Sulforaphane Supplementation

Posted on January 19th 2017 (over 1 year)

Dr. Jed W. Fahey is a nutritional biochemist with broad training and extensive background in plant physiology, human nutrition, phytochemistry and nutritional biochemistry. He is the director of the Cullman Chemoprotection Center at Johns Hopkins.

Dr. Fahey has been researching isothiocyanates like sulforaphane for over 20 years and is an exceptional expert in this arena. He and his colleagues have been, in a big way, at the absolute center of what is a staggering amount of research on these very powerful compounds.

There is hardly a topic which we can discuss in which he doesn't have an anecdote about a study he was involved in, or, in some cases, "tribal knowledge" that may not even be published but is nonetheless interesting and an important part of the story that is unique to his particular vantage point.

"So we started growing them in incubators in the labs starting from seeds. And lo and behold, it turns out that broccoli sprouts had much higher levels of the precursor of sulforaphane, glucoraphanin, than did the mature plants." - Jed. W Fahey Click To Tweet
