An interesting little knowledge, a cup of chopped raw broccoli has only 31 calories, but it contains more than 2 grams of protein and 15 mg of sulforaphane.
Broccoli seed extract has a good performance in anti-cancer, promoting detoxification and long-lasting anti-oxidation. This is derived from broccoli seed extract, glucoraphanin. Glucoraphanin is absorbed by the human body and interacts with myrosinase to produce sulforaphane. Sulforaphane not only has a strong anti-cancer activity, but also has a strong antioxidant capacity. It is an inducer of the body's natural detoxification system. It is used in the beauty and medical industry. However, in the epidemic era, sulforaphane was found to have immune effects. Ingestion of broccoli bud homogenate can enhance the defense response of the antiviral host. This is because the sulforaphane in broccoli is an effective pathway activator of the body's own immune system (Nrf2). In addition, sulforaphane can also affect immune cells, including enhancing the clearing effect of alveolar macrophages on bacteria and enhancing the lysis activity of natural killer cells.
Studies have found that the content of glucoraphanin in broccoli seeds is the highest. As the seeds germinate and grow, the content of glucoraphanin will decrease.
At present, broccoli seed extract has been widely used in health food as a functional raw material. YTBiochem has several years of experience in the field of natural food ingredients.
