Grocery shoppers be prepared! This fall you will find broccoli in your favorite supermarket under the brand name, Beneforte. British scientists have spent 14 years hybridizing this variety to contain 2-3 times the glucoraphanin of the ordinary variety. Glucoraphanin is a naturally occuring antioxidant that is believed to have significant health benefits. You can bet you will pay a premium for Beneforte, though. Studies are currently underway to test if this new variety is really better than the traditional ones.
PositiveTip: Beneforte or not, the evidence is strong that eating plenty of broccoli and other vegetables enhances your health.
