BrocAAHwhite

Broccoli is a specific group of plants in the species Brassica oleracea. Broccoli contains the constituent glucoraphanin which is converted into sulforaphane, a constituent that exerts anti-cancer and antimicrobial properties in experiments.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.
