Where to Buy Broccoli Sprout Benefits in a Capsule:
Broccoli sprout capsules are essentially broccoli (Brassica oleracea) sprout extract in the form of easy to swallow capsules.
The sprouts are 3-5 day old broccoli plants and are known for the high amount of phytochemicals that they contain. Whereas mature broccoli plants have a higher amount of vitamins and minerals than the sprouts, the young sprouts contain high levels of sulforaphane and glucosinolates.
The capsule form is a convenient alternative to growing your own sprouts, easting a daily dose of fresh broccoli sprouts or consuming broccoli at each meal. Read labels when purchasing packaged supplements, since products vary by ingredients, product processing, serving amount and of course cost.
Some features to look for:
- Contains sulforaphane glucosinolate
- Vege-caps, gluten-free or capsules that contain no fillers
- Freeze drying vs heat processing or extracted without solvents
