In 2010, a rat model of Shiraz Medical University in Iran showed that broccoli sprouts rich in sulforaphane strongly protected the rat heart from oxidative stress and cell death induced by ischemia-reperfusion

In 2013, a clinical trial conducted by Hopkins University School of Medicine (NCT: 01845220) found that sulforaphane can improve alcohol intolerance related to aldehyde dehydrogenase.

In 2017, a clinical trial of Tokai University in Japan showed that sulforaphane can effectively improve the liver function of male patients with fatty liver and reduce the serum ALT / GTP (liver function test value)。
