Broccoli is delicious and healthy. The small, green sprouts of the plant, however, have a lot more to offer than the full-grown vegetables. We’ll tell you what.
Broccoli sprouts grow from broccoli seeds, of course. Just a short time after planting, small stems emerge from the seed – the sprout. The sprouts are edible, have an intense, fresh taste and are suitable as an ingredient in a variety of dishes: in a salad dressing, with a little cream cheese on wholemeal bread or stirred into a herb quark.
But why do broccoli sprouts join the group of superfoods that not only cooks and food bloggers, but also fitness professionals and doctors swear by? The answer is a substance that the plant actually uses to protect itself from injury: sulforaphane. This substance has numerous positive properties.
It prevents cardiovascular diseases
Laboratory tests have shown that sulforaphane can protect you against a wide variety of heart and circulatory diseases. It lowers blood pressure, protects the heart from oxidative stress, protects cells from dying in the event of circulatory disorders such as ischemia, regulates blood clotting and thus prevents thromboses and embolisms and protects the heart from permanent damage after a heart attack.

It fights cancer cells
Sulforaphane is so efficient in the fight against deadly cancer that it is even used in chemotherapy. Studies have shown that this positive effect can be achieved through regular consumption of broccoli sprouts. Three to five servings per week reduce the risk of various types of cancer such as prostate cancer, breast cancer or liver cancer by up to 40 percent. The Heidelberg University Hospital reports that sulforaphane attacks aggressive tumor stem cells, making them sensitive to chemotherapy.
It helps with diabetes
Eaten regularly, broccoli sprouts can also help improve the blood counts of people with type II diabetes. Sulforaphane in particular makes the insulin value much more stable and tends to be in a healthy range.
It kills viruses and bacteria
Even nasty pathogens are not immune from the miracle substance. Sulforaphane actively kills viruses and bacteria in our body, supports our immune system and even does not stop at rapidly mutating viruses such as the insidious influenza.
It protects the skin
If you eat broccoli sprouts regularly, you will continue to have less worries about sunburn and prematurely aged skin. Because sulforaphane boosts the production of enzymes that protect you from dangerous UV radiation. This can reduce the risk of sunburn by up to 50 percent.
It helps you lose weight
Medical research has shown that sulforaphane helps the body produce digestive enzymes. As a result, he is able to process high-calorie food more effectively and lays down fewer fat reserves.
In fact, this list is far from over. Because scientists suspect that broccoli sprouts with their high content of sulforaphane can help us to fight numerous other diseases; including Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, and even depression. For our part, we are already completely convinced of the small, green superfood and wish you a healthy appetite!
