Sulforaphane, which is high in broccoli sprouts, clears away brain amyloid plaques and tau tangles and ameliorated memory defects in mice engineered to get Alzheimer’s disease.

The sulforaphane also increased heat shock proteins in the brain. Heat shock proteins play a role in disaggregating protein aggregates.

The precursor to sulforaphane is found in cruciferous vegetables but is highest in broccoli sprouts which can contain up to 100 times more than mature broccoli.

To learn more about the role sulforaphane plays in human health, check out my comprehensive video and the podcast I did with sulforaphane expert Dr. Jed Fahey.

    Hi Rhonda, Would it be ok to chop/blend broccoli sprouts with other ingredients, then freeze them? Or do they need to be consumed immediately after breaking the cells? Also, is it fine to freeze (just to store) then later, thaw and heat for 10 mins at 60 degrees? thanks john
