better product than Jarrow BroccoMax et al
There was a study performed using Jarrow's BroccoMax product evaluating whether Broccoli supplements achieve plasma and urine levels of Sulforaphane, the supposedly beneficial compound in cruciferous veges. The study concluded that BroccoMax is useless. The study which identified that the ingredient in BroccoMax is useless was reported in ScienceDaily on Jan 31, 2011. The following paragraph cystalises the crux of the issue: "Broccoli, prepared correctly, is an extremely potent cancer-fighting agent -- three to five servings a week are enough to have an effect. To get broccoli's benefits, though, the enzyme myrosinase has to be present; if it's not there, sulforaphane, broccoli's cancer-preventive and anti-inflammatory component, doesn't form," said Elizabeth Jeffery, a U of I professor of nutrition." The BroccoMax label advertises "Sulforaphane", but not "Myrosinase" which accoring to the science is crucial to "Sulforaphane" activity. But what do I know, since I'm just a dumb consumer. So I wrote to Jarrow asking about the Myrosinase content in BroccoMax. No reply. I wrote again. No reply. So I sent another email from another email address about a different subject. They replied same day. So I sent the original email questioning Myrosinase from the other email address they had just replied to. No reply. Obviously nothing was wrong with my original email address. This continued for 5 emails. They did not reply to one of them. So I called them. Put on hold. After hold was told that someone would call me back. No return call (of course). Do you ever wonder if supplments are just something devised by supplement companies as a means of making money, and in fact 99% are completely worthless junk which have no real benefit? After all, isn't this the pillar of Capitalism?.. peddling worthless junk which has no real use or benefit at absorbitant prices to gullible feeble human beings who have an innate compulsion to 'live in hope'? So, no more purchasing Jarrow products. **I did further product research and found that iHerb now stock an Eclectic Institute Whole Broccoli Sprouts product. All the research indicates that Sprouts are always more nutritionally dense than the whole plant. In terms of "gut feel", active compounds in isolation just don't sit right. Nutrition and health is about balance. Just consider all the adverse press concerning Alpha Tocopherol Vitamin E in isolation which was all the rage as a supplement throughout the 90's and 00's, though which is now considered to do more harm than good, due to displacing Gamma Tocopherol. Therefore I like the Eclectic product because it is a concentrated "Whole Food", which will inherently contain all the co-factor compounds naturally present. I wrote to Eclectic about the possibility of destroying the Myrosinase content in the course of their production process. Their reply: "According to scientific evaluations of broccoli constituents, myrosinase does not seem to break down until it reaches temperatures of 60 degrees Celsius; our freeze-dry process does not expose the broccoli sprouts to temperatures anywhere near as high as 60C."

Whole Broccoli Sprouts, Better Than Extracts!
Great whole sprout supplement, I take this instead of sulforaphane only extracts as you also get important enzymes like myrosinase as well as many other glucosinolates & isothiocyanates. Freeze drying as Eclectic does keeps all these components alive.
