We know all about the health benefits of green veggies, but there’s a reason you should be opting specifically for broccoli (and broccoli sprouts!): a little-known nutrient called sulforaphane.

Etymologically-minded readers might have already noticed the link between the sulfury smell of the crucifer and this important phytonutrient. But sulforaphane isn’t just what made that overcooked cafeteria broccoli so, uh, unappetizing (or, as our sixth-grade selves said… farty.) Sulforaphane promotes and induces your body’s natural detoxing capabilities, and it also supports your immune system. Plus, it’s anti-inflammatory to boot.
