The unique phytonutrients contained in broccoli sprouts may activate the body’s natural cellular detoxification processes and antioxidant defences. Scientific research indicates that selenium (an essential trace element in human nutrition) supports antioxidant activity in the body. When taken as directed, this product assists in the maintenance and improvement of general well being.

Very occasionally, gastro-intestinal adverse effects have been reported, and include nausea, gastro-abdominal discomfort and diarrhoea. Limited data available seem to indicate that such effects are limited to certain pre-existing gastro-intestinal conditions, in particular, those with dysbiosis. However, it has been observed that for those affected, the dose can be managed in a manner whereby the symptoms disappear and may not recur even after the consumption of larger doses.
