A new study from researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has shed light on the potent ability of broccoli sprouts to help detoxify the body of dangerous manmade pollutants. Specifically, the clinical trial involved nearly 300 men and women in a heavily polluted area who were given a broccoli sprout beverage in order to boost their levels of sulforaphane, a plant-compound that has been shown to have tremendous preventive properties in other studies. The participants displayed “rapid, significant and sustained higher levels of excretion of benzene, a known human carcinogen, and acrolein, a lung irritant.” To read the full article, please go here.
These results are truly extraordinary and significant for anyone who may be exposed to harmful pollutants, which unfortunately is all too many of us these days. Preventive measures that are as easy as consuming a particular food every day are certainly welcome news to us, and we are beyond happy that we can offer broccoli sprouts in an extremely convenient product that may help you rid the body of toxins.
