Sprouts are SUCH a yummy addition to any savory meal.
Not only do they bring a delicate freshness to the dish, they help metabolize excess hormones, detoxify the liver and restore balance to your body at the same time.
So next time your loading up with fellow cruciferous veggies like arugula, broccoli and brussel sprouts… remember to go for the sprouts!
Even though they’re small, they are POWERFUL –
Sprouts can be up to 120 times more nutrient-dense than their full grown counterpart.
Adding in 2-3 tablespoons of this superfood can reduce symptoms of PCOS and help restore hormonal balance.

Broccoli Sprouts for Metabolizing Excess Estrogen & Restoring Balance
One of our favorite sprouts, though we love them all, is broccoli sprouts.
Broccoli sprouts contain a high amount of sulfornphane which supports the metabolization of estrogen.
Often women with PCOS struggle with estrogen dominance or poor metabolization of estrogen – Sulfornphane helps metabolize “bad” estrogen in the body into “good” estrogen that the body can then use or get rid of.
Another super power of broccoli sprouts is its’ ability to aide in liver detoxification.
Removing excess toxins from your liver can help with better digestion, absorption of nutrients and lower over all toxic load.
The addition of 2-3 tbsp of sprouts per day can effectively help remove toxins within just a few days.
They come in endless verities and can last in your fridge for up to a week.
Sprouts are also extremely easy to grow at home too!
