Broccoli Sprouts and Brain Health

Dr. Ilene Ruhoy, a board-certified neurologist practicing pediatric and adult neurology in Seattle, Washington, opens her article with “‘Spouting’ Is The Healthiest (And Least Expensive) Thing You Can Do For Your Brain Health”.

Dr. Ruhoy is passionate about the power of sprouts to improve and maintain health. She puts a strong emphasis on broccoli sprouts because they contain sulforaphane, an antioxidant that stimulates the expression of cytoprotective genes in the brain.

Other sprouts Dr. Ruhoy finds particularly beneficial to your health are:  mung bean sprouts, chia seed, red clover sprouts, lentil sprouts (particularly important in vegan diets) and radish sprouts.
