Broccoli sprout extract eases pain of sunburn

Broccoli sprout extract eases pain of sunburn : “Scientists have found that applying broccoli sprout extract to the skin can reduce the redness of sunburn caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Their findings were published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.”

You would hope by now people have got the ultra violet safety, slip, slop, slap message. If broccoli sprouts reduce significantly the pain and inflammation of sunburn it could well mean the ingredient in broccoli sprouts would help salve burns and skin irritations in general. As a family, we have always used cucumber to take the inflammation and soreness out of burning. Cucumber for burns and onion for stings!
