This podcast is about one of the most important biological pathways you could possibly take the time to learn about: the NRF2 pathway.

The most potent naturally-occurring inducer of this pathway, a plant compound known as sulforaphane, may be one of the most potent health-enhancing compounds at our disposal and yet... no one is keeping it out of your hands! No $1,000 per pill markup is keeping it out of your hands -- it’s available to anyone willing to take the little bit of time it takes each week to produce broccoli sprouts.

In some respects, broccoli sprouts may even be a great equalizer in a way... while it’s true that healthy food can often be expensive, it’s even reasonably possible for a person to take $20 worth of seeds and feed their whole family some of the most healthful greens you could get your hands on. This video will tell you why.

Here are a few of the more salient points surrounding sulforaphane that are discussed in this podcast...

  • Profound changes in lipid biomarkers, reducing heart disease risk by as much as 50% in humans.
  • Massive reductions in cancer risk in humans and also highly effective as a cancer intervention, particularly prostate and breast but also many others.
  • Steep reductions in inflammation in humans.
  • Shown in mice to be as effective as prozac as an anti-depressant.
  • Steep behavioral changes in humans with respect to certain neurological disorders, such as autism.
  • Causes dramatic boosts in the excretion of air pollutants (up to 60%) in humans.

00:21:56 - Aging
00:29:37 - Brain and behavior
00:41:33 - Final recap
00:44:18 - Dose

NOTE: If you enjoy this podcast, you'll enjoy the YouTube video more since it shows all of the figures and citations
