You may know that broccoli is a great healthy vegetable that can help reduce inflammation. But, you might not know that broccoli sprouts are also good for you and make a great superfood for your brain.
Broccoli sprouts contain sulfurophane, a sulfur-rich molecule that can help prevent brain disease by decreasing oxidative stress. And the sprouts contain 10-100 times more than than a full-grown head of broccoli. A 1-ounce dose can contain up to 73 milligrams of sulfurophane glucosinate.
Protecting your body from oxidative stress will also help protect your DNA from mutations which can lead to diseases like cancer, heart disease and arteriosclerosis, as well as anxiety.
The chlorophyll present in broccoli sprouts includes magnesium, which also helps with anxiety and reduces inflammation.
