Interesting question. Some references state improperly (according to some researchers) thatsulforaphane is activated by myrosinase. It is more correct to say that the precursorto sulforaphane, glucoraphanin is activated by contact with myrosinase to getthe active compound sulfoaphane. Also the human microbiome contains myrosinase(from what I read) so you shouldn’t need to supplement it anyway.
Also consider that sulforaphane is listed in over 2000 studieson pubmed without much mention of myrosinase in that process. Sometimes thestudies are using supplements and sometimes broccoli itself.
It seems safe to conclude that taking sulforaphane without myrosinase is prudent. I would still eat my broccoli a few times a week along with taking your sulforaphane supplement.
