Snapshot Science – Broccoli Sprouts to Aid Schizophrenia

John Hopkins Medicine have shared studies describing how a chemical found in abundance in broccoli sprouts can potentially assist in restoring imbalanced brain chemistry associated with Schizophrenia.

The chemical, sulforaphane, has been known to have many health benefits. It is found in several cruciferous vegetables however it is destroyed by heat so must be eaten raw.

This can be combated by mixing the cooked cruciferous vegetables with mustard seed powder, which helps restore the sulforaphane.
