In this series we look at the ingredients in our Perfect Liver Detox Support supplement. If you are new to detox programs, you can start with our article on the Dangers of Toxins.

Broccoli Sprout Powder

Broccoli is a well-known cruciferous vegetable superfood, and the sprouts are 20 – 150 times more nutrient dense than the full grown plant. Research demonstrates that sulforaphane from broccoli has many profound health benefits, above and beyond helping the body with detoxification.

Sulforaphane speeds up the body’s ability to detoxify pollutants. Recent research from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health demonstrates that participants in the Jiangsu Province of China who drank a mixture containing dissolved freeze dried broccoli sprout powder increased the excretion rate of two carcinogenic air pollutants, benzene (by 61%) and acrolein (by 23%). Research suggests that sulforaphane in broccoli sprouts may elevate the capacity of cells to adapt and survive a broad range of environmental toxins.

Broccoli Sprout Powder:

  • Stimulates Phase 2 liver detoxification pathways
  • Enhances the body’s ability to detoxify pollutants
  • Increases glutathione, a natural antioxidant

Perfect Liver Detox Support contains 400mcg of Sulfurophane (the active constituent of broccoli sprouts) per serving and it is recommended to take 2-3 servings per day (800-1200mcg of Sulfurophane in a daily dose).

Why We Include This Dosage of Sulfurophane

Taking between 100-300mg of broccoli sprouts powder (yielding 800-1200mcg of Sulfurophane) per day has been scientifically shown to aide in both phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification pathways. Perfect Liver Detox Support provides the necessary 100-300mg of broccoli sprouts powder in a daily dose (2-3 servings).
