Source Naturals Broccoli Sprouts Extract is a great way to get the nutrition for the superfood without having to grow your own sprouts or buy them at the store.
Compared to fresh sprouts, these tablets are very convenient – especially if you travel a lot. As you probably know, the tiny sprouts don’t stay fresh long, and therefore need to be consumed quickly after purchase – or when they have finished growing on your kitchen counter. With tablets, you don’t need to worry about this.
A single serving consists of 2 tablets, which provides the same nutrition you would get from eating 1 pound of broccoli. Each bottle has 60 tablets (or 30 servings) and it comes in a pack of 2, which cuts the cost down.
That said, these tablets are cheap compared to buying and eating 1 pound of broccoli everyday for a month…. LOL

They base their formulations on the concept that our bodies are constantly striving to maintain a healthy balance – and therefore the nutrient combinations and potency are designed to aid in achieving that balance, naturally.

Broccoli sprouts are nature’s miracle food. There simply isn’t a more powerful way to nourish your body at the cellular level than consuming fresh broccoli sprouts.
A Johns Hopkins study in 1992 discovered a highly concentrated source of the compound that helps mobilize the body’s natural cancer fighting resources. The name of this compound is sulforaphane. They found that three-day-old broccoli sprouts contain 20 to 50 times the amount of protective compounds than those found in mature broccoli. Broccoli sprouts were shown to reduce the risk of getting breast and colon cancer.
In the study they injected rats with radioactive material and those rats that were fed a consistent regimen of broccoli sprouts received a significantly reduced number of incidences of cancer cells and tumors.
Did you know that one ounce of broccoli sprouts contain 4% of the recommended daily value of dietary fiber. Broccoli sprouts also contain 15% of the recommended amount of vitamin C and 2% of the recommended intake of calcium.
Broccoli sprouts also act as an anti-bacterial agent against H. pylori. An organism associated with causing stomach ulcers.
Broccoli sprouts also help combat against free radicals. Free radicals are unstable chemical byproducts of metabolism and these damage cell molecules and lead to cardiovascular disease. Broccoli sprouts contain high levels of glucoraphanin which prevents the damage caused by free radicals.
And guess what, it’s easy to grow broccoli sprouts. The seeds are inexpensive and very easy to grow.
