Has anyone ever taken sulforaphane (broccoli sprout extract large quantaty)?

I usually watch Dr Berg videos for health advice anyway so imagine my surprise when this came up

I have heard these claims about sulforaphane before, anyone who's taken it notice any benefits? ... lzbQ%3D%3D

Sulforaphane is a chemical that is made when chewing cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and broccoli sprouts.

A chemical in these vegetables called glucoraphanin mixes with an enzyme in humans called myrosinase, which produces sulforaphane.  Sulforaphane might increase the death of cancer cells and also reduce swelling.

People use sulforaphane for prostate cancer.  It is also used for hay fever, autism, asthma, liver disease, sunburn, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these other uses.

Don't confuse sulforaphane with broccoli or broccoli sprout.  These are not the same.

Although there has been some basic research on how sulforaphane might have effects in vivo, there is no clinical evidence that consuming cruciferous vegetables and sulforaphane affects the risk of cancer or any other disease.
