Welcome to the next article in our Liver Detox 101 series! So far, we have covered the basics on how milk thistle, turmeric, artichoke leaf, and schisandra berry work to detoxify the liver. In this article, we are going to discuss how the next ingredient in Perfect Liver Detox, broccoli sprouts, work to detoxify the liver.
What are Broccoli Sprouts?
Broccoli is a well-known cruciferous vegetable superfood that you’ve probably eaten plenty of. Whether you love it or hate it, broccoli is really good for you, and the sprouts are 20 – 150 times more nutrient dense than the full grown plant! Broccoli sprouts contain all of the nutrients that are needed for the plant to reach full maturity, which is why they are so good for you! The main beneficial nutrient found in broccoli sprouts is sulforaphane. This important nutrient speeds up the body’s ability to detoxify pollutants.
The Health Benefits of Broccoli Sprouts

How Do Broccoli Sprouts Detoxify the Liver?
Research demonstrates that sulforaphane from broccoli has many profound health benefits, above and beyond helping the body with detoxification. Scientific evidence suggests that sulforaphane in broccoli sprouts may elevate the capacity of cells to adapt and survive a broad range of environmental toxins.
