Broccoli sprout extract. My summary

The good effects snuck up on me inch by inch so I wasn’t sure it was doing anything. Now my bottle has run out and so I can see what it was doing.

  • Anxiety and mild distress have returned
  • Appetite has increased. I’m finding it difficult to stick to my 1900 calories a day
  • Worrying has returmed
  • My desire to take L-theanine to cope has come back as a result

Ive ordered more bottles from iherb.

It is supposedly for antioxidant effects on glutamate.
I have low expectations but it’s cheap so what the heck I’ll try it

Can I take it with L Theanine

Probably.
I started taking l theanine too

Yes. But I needed much less L-theanine while taking it.

Be careful taking it with beta alanine (if you take that). I experienced a pressure on my chest when I combined the two.

Tomorrow morning I’m going to the health food store to check if they have it. If they don’t, I’ll order from iHerb. Thanks

I was reading a study about this for schizophrenia, it said they took 2 capsules in the amount of 100 Micromoles.

I don’t know much about chemistry so I was scratching my head trying to figure out how many micrograms that is mcg or milligrams.

So I learned you need the molecular weight of the compound.

so the molecular weight of sulforaphane is - 177.29 daltons.
im not to sure what a dalton is but must be a measurement.

Then I read your suppose to divide the dalton measurement by the amount of micromoles.

so 177.29 / 100 = 1.7729 mg

so thats 1773 micro grams

Science people please let me know if thats right :smile:
@Azley did I convert it right?
sincerely
sir scientific de level :test_tube:

hah… don’t trust my answer… but it looks like a dalton is counted similarly to Avagadro’s constant.

http://www.unitconversion.org/weight/daltons-to-micrograms-conversion.html

is giving me this for 177 daltons

2.9391381e-16

which is .0000000000000002 ug

I’ve stopped taking it for now as I’m back on beta alanine. (If I take it with beta alanine I get a pressure in my chest).

How’s everyone else getting on with it ?

I just started it, I’ll see how it goes

I’ve been taking it for a few days. I do notice a decreased interest in food.

I’m back on the broccoli sprout bandwagon. I’m taking 1 pill instead of 2 with my beta alanine.

It takes the edge off the distress I sometimes feel and I’m not getting any pressure on my chest from just the 1 pill.

Hmm… Looks like I’m getting some chest pressure even with one pill and beta alanine. So it’s a thumbs down for that combination. At least with abilify anyway.
