Nrf2 activators, Sulforaphane being the most potent AFAIK, cause a host of cellular defense responses. Nrf2 is also triggered during fasting.


But do we know if they should be taken daily, or perhaps cycled weekly? Do you take 25 mg/day or 175 mg once a week?

Let me know if you've seen any evidence to imply one is better than the other.

i was reading about Nrf activators possibly being detrimental for general health long term. im pretty sure regular high dose long term use of sulforaphane is not a good idea. i have personally being using it for a while now, and i do feel strange at times, kind of very tired when going to sleep and waking up next day. reminds me of fasting a bit, which also causes nrf activation. i would suggest to be careful with this stuff as i do not feel any much better than when i first started 3 months ago.
