Broccoli has been reinvented as a tender-stem, purple sprouting nutritional powerhouse. This tasty vegetable is packed with vitamins, minerals and superantioxidants. Raw broccoli is one of the best natural sources of the phytonutrient glucoraphanin (GR) – a long lasting antioxidant that boosts the body’s natural defenses against pollutants and toxins.
Benefits of glucoraphanin last up to 3 days while other antioxidants last only up to 3 hours. [1,2] Glucoraphanin , when consumed, converts to a potent antioxidant and cellular protector called sulforaphane .
