1 tablespoon grated ginger, to taste

By adding this liquid broccoli extract to their daily nutrition regimen, people can get a concentrated dose of
sulforaphane glucosinolate (from a natural source). This compound supports antioxidant functions in the body, plus it supplies vitamin A, selenium and beta-carotene.
As more research comes out (including studies on skin cancer and autism treatment), we are seeing broccoli sprout supplements (and fresh sprouts of course) becoming more popular among people looking to slow down the aging process and stay healthy. Sulforaphane has been studied for its ability to decreasing inflammation in the body by helping to combat oxidative stress in cells.
