Broccoli Sprout Powder Significantly Lowers Levels Of Oxidative Stress Biomarkers

May 11, 2011: 08:23 AM EST
Researchers in Iran have found that consuming five to ten grams of broccoli sprout powder increased the total plasma antioxidant levels and reduced levels of a reactive carbonyl compound that is a marker of oxidative stress. The findings from a randomized clinical trial suggest the possibility that broccoli could reduce oxidative stress in diabetics. The eighty-one diabetics who participated in the study were divided into two groups that received either five or 10grams of broccoli sprout powder or a placebo each day for four weeks. Both broccoli groups showed lower levels of two oxidative stress markers: malondialdehyde (MDA) and oxidized LDL cholesterol. The researchers, who acknowledged that the ideal dose of broccoli sprout powder is still unknown, recommended further studies.
