Cancer Fighting Components Lost In Frozen Broccoli
Sprouting Your Own Broccoli Provides Cancer Fighting Benefits
Sulforaphane, which is prevalent in broccoli sprouts, has shown to not only help prevent cancer, but also reduce insulin resistance and may assist with blood-sugar control in people with type 2 diabetes. Sulforaphane can only be produced in broccoli when glucoraphanin and myrosinase come in contact when the vegetable is chewed or chopped. When broccoli is frozen, it is first blanched at high temperatures which eliminates most of the myrosinase in the broccoli, therefore destroying the health benefits. The only way to gain the health benefits in broccoli is to eat it fresh, and what better way to do that than grow your own.
There has been a sizable trend lately showing many people growing their own organic broccoli sprouts in order to reap the most health benefits possible. A study conducted by Johns Hopkins University scientists found that the SGS concentration in three- to four-day old broccoli sprouts is 20 times higher than the concentration in full-grown broccoli plants.
By growing your own sprouts, you know exactly what you're eating and where it came from. Todd Snively from Todd's Seeds prides himself in supplying every day people with non-GMO, organic broccoli sprouting seeds, and many other sprouting seeds. Not only that, but there is also constant germination testing so that you receive the highest yield possible from your seeds. Todd states, "We want to make sure that your health and the health of this planet we all live on is first and foremost when choosing what seeds we sell." H went on further to state, "Growing your own sprouts is becoming more popular every day and it's really not surprising why once you realize the benefits and cost savings. Many of our customers sprout because they are fighting health issues, like cancer, and others want to maintain or improve the good health they already have.".
Beyond their cancer fighting abilities, broccoli sprouts also have many other health benefits. Sprouts contain large amounts of dietary fiber, B complex vitamins, 1.4 g of protein and only 16 calories per 1/2 cup serving. If that isn't enough for you, broccoli sprouts also contain vitamins A, C, and E, along with calcium. So next time you walk down the frozen food isle, consider the benefits you're compromising when you choose frozen over fresh.
