Spice up your broccoli to fight cancer. Sounds strange but it seems to be true. A University of Illinois study has found that spicying up fresh broccoli with a spicy food that contains myrosinase significantly enhances each food's individual cancer-fighting power and ensures that absorption takes place in the upper part of the digestive system where you'll get the maximum health benefit.
Suggestions for spicying up include broccoli powder, mustard, horseradish, or wasabi. The spicier, the better.
In the study, when fresh broccoli sprouts were eaten with broccoli powder, the scientists were able to measure bioactive compounds in the blood 30 minutes later. When these peaked at three hours, they were much higher than when the foods were eaten alone.
Other foods that will boost broccoli's benefits if they are paired together include radishes, cabbage, arugula, watercress, and brussels sprouts.
