Another great reason to grow sprouts

The proven cancer preventer, sulforaphane is present at extraordinary levels in Broccoli Sprouts.

Sulforaphane is an antioxidant that protects our cells from harmful free radicals associated with cancer and heart disease. Sulforaphane is present in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and kale.

The highest concentrations are found in Broccoli sprouts. They contain 20-50 times more Sulforaphane then a serving of regular broccoli.

Growing Sprouts

Many people do not attempt to grow sprouts because they think it is difficult or time-consuming.  Growing sprouts is very easy to do. Just add water to the seeds and watch them grow.  We always have fresh sprouts growing at home and even take them backpacking with us.  You can also grow sprouts while backpacking if you are planning to be out several days.
