Sulforaphane, which is high in broccoli sprouts, clears away brain amyloid plaques and tau tangles and ameliorated memory defects in mice engineered to get Alzheimer’s disease.
The sulforaphane also increased heat shock proteins in the brain. Heat shock proteins play a role in disaggregating protein aggregates.
The precursor to sulforaphane is found in cruciferous vegetables but is highest in broccoli sprouts which can contain up to 100 times more than mature broccoli.
