Fermented broccoli and broccoli sprouts, by Dr. Mercola
Fermented broccoli sprouts contain fermented broccoli and broccoli sprouts, or Brassica oleracea of the finial family. Fresh broccoli and broccoli sprouts are the two healthiest foods you can eat. Both contain high concentrations of a wide range of sulfur-containing compounds called glucosinolates. Two of these compounds -- glucoraphanin and sulforaphane -- are now very well documented. They are involved in many essential processes throughout our body.

- Contains glucoraphanin, sulforaphane and myrosinase
- Clean, organic production
- Very good absorption in the body thanks to fermentation
- Contains no soy or gluten; GMO free
Fermented and organic
To acquire optimal amounts of glucoraphanin and sulforaphane, you should eat about 1 kilogram of broccoli per week. This powerful fermented Dr. Mercola formula offers a good alternative. Fermented broccoli sprouts contain both fermentation-activated and organic powder from broccoli sprouts and the whole plant. Because of this, the product contains standardized levels of the important beneficial compounds.
From glucoraphanin via myrosinase to sulforaphane
You would eat one kilogram of broccoli a week, though cooking largely destroys an important enzyme essential to convert the glucoraphanin in broccoli into the beneficial sulforaphane. In healthy people it can still be converted, in the intestine. Pre-fermenting the broccoli, as done in this formula, first converts the glucoraphanin to myrosinase and subsequently to sulforaphane. This allows your body to use not only the glucoraphanin and myrosinase but also directly the bioavailable sulforaphane.
A unique drying process
Each dose of fermented broccoli sprouts contains standardized amounts of 140 mcg of sulforaphane, 350 mcg of glucorafanin and 105 mcg of myrosinase. No use is made of extracts or corrosive extraction and processing methods. No solvents or chemicals are used either. This is because the product is processed through a special drying process at a low temperature. The result is a potent product of intact broccoli sprouts and whole powdered broccoli plants. Thanks to the essential myrosinase activity that is thus retained, with this product the high sulforaphane levels remain available to the body.
The benefits of fermentation
Dr. Mercola has extensive experience working with fermented ingredients. Fermentation optimizes the benefits of a plant substance and changes its nutritional value. For example, fermentation helps to pre-convert ingredients, increase certain nutrients, improve the bio-accessibility of minerals, increase the bioavailability of antioxidants and to create unique metabolites.
In addition to all the benefits discussed above, we like to emphasize that Dr. Mercola uses organic ingredients as much as possible. The broccoli sprouts are harvested at peak so that nutritional content is optimal. This clean formula contains no harsh chemicals, genetically engineered ingredients, pesticides or herbicides. The formula is optimized for daily use, but also perfectly fits a detoxification (detox) treatment.
