Sulforaphane is an anti-cancer compound in cruciferous vegetables, most commonly credited to Broccoli. It appears to have general but potent antioxidant and possible anti-inflammatory actions, with the former similar to curcumin.
Sulforaphane is most often used for
- Broccoli extract
- Diindoylmethane (Another broccoli component)
Although an ideal dosage is not known, supplementation of 0.1-0.5mg/kg sulforaphane to rats has been noted to be bioactive. This is an estimated human dose of:
- 1.1-5.5 mg for a 150lb person
- 1.5-7.2 mg for a 200lb person
- 1.7-9.1 mg for a 250lb person
These low quantities are likely attainable via raw broccoli or cruciferious vegetable products, while higher doses may be further beneficial. The optimal supplemental dose of sulforaphane is unknown.
