Benefits of Brussel
Can help us avoid chronic
Brussels sprouts can help us avoid chronic, excessive inflammation through a variety of nutrient benefits. First is their rich glucosinolate content. In addition to the detox supportive properties mentioned earlier, glucosinolates found in Brussels sprouts help to regulate the body s inflammatory/anti inflammatory system and prevent unwanted inflammation. Particularly well studied in this context is the glucosinolate called glucobrassicin. The glucobrassicin found in Brussels sprouts can get converted into an isothiocyanate molecule called ITC, or indole 3 carbinol. I3C is an anti inflammatory compound that can actually operate at the genetic level, and by doing so, prevent the initiation of inflammatory responses at a very early stage.
