Have you guys heard of sulforaphane?

I was just poking around on the PubMed site (as I often do, I know, I should get a life)

I happened across an article where they were testing how you could increase the anticancer activity of 5-FU by adding in sulforaphane, which is a naturally occurring compound in broccoli and other members of that family (but found up to 200% higher concentrations in broccoli microgreens) 

Basically, the article is saying that the combination of the compound caused the 5-FU to be effective even at lower dosages, so that might be something to consider if you are having trouble with the 5-FU. 

 

I think I will be adding some broccoli microgreens to my juicing!

 

The full article is here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6278648/

 

Have an excellent day!

    Go For The Broccoli “Sprouts” sulp

    So glad to see someone checking this out! Broccoli sprouts are where you will get the mother load of sulphurophane. I add the sprouts to salads or anything .. they are packed with it and it is sooooo good for you. Good luck with your supplement plan!!...M

    Brocco Max

    There is also a supplement called Broccomax that I sometimes take in addition to eating liberal amounts of broccoli.
