What if you could grow one of the most potent sources of an apoptosis (cancer cell suicide) inducing compound right in your own kitchen? You can! And this can be accomplished easily in 5-7 days. I’m referring to broccoli sprouts, the most potent source of sulforaphane we know. Stalks of broccoli are a great source of sulforaphane, but broccoli seeds grown into sprouts have been shown to have an impressive 50 to 100 times more of this important compound. As if that weren’t enough, they actually taste good and can be used in smoothies, on salads, sandwiches, or a topping on pretty much any dish. These sprouts can be grown in a few easy steps. Broccoli seeds can be purchased at your local health food store or online. The first step is to take a 1/2 cup of seeds and soak them overnight. Using a strainer or jar with a mesh screen they can be rinsed and then allowed to sit somewhere in your kitchen. It’s important that the seeds stay moist throughout the process and are not placed in direct sunlight until the very end of the process. Continue the rinsing step 2 or 3 times a day over the next 3-5 days. Again, the key is to keep the seeds moist. On the 3rd or 4th day they will start sprouting. Once they have had a day or two to sprout they can be placed near a window or outside to receive some direct sunlight. This will help them green up and be ready to be eaten. Enjoy!
