Good News about Broccoli Sprouts
Sulforaphane, a natural product found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli sprouts, has been shown to have numerous beneficial health effects. Paul Talalay, who identified sulforaphane more than 15 years ago, now has found one more. Studies in both mice and human volunteers demonstrate that a topical application of broccoli sprout extracts can protect the skin from the redness and inflammation caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The sulforaphane extract works by boosting the production of a network of protective enzymes that defend against UV damage, resulting in protection that can last for several days, even after the extract is no longer present on or in the skin.
