Not all Broccoli Supplements are Created Equal…
There are currently over 500 journal publications, as well as documented epidemiological evidence, showing that diets rich in broccoli:
- are chemoprotective and may reduce the risk of many forms of cancer.
- promote reduction of PSA levels
- possess anti-inflammatory properties
The BroccoProtect Advantage
BroccoProtect contains a specially cultivated form of broccoli seed known as BroccoRaphanin?. This proprietary and patented variety of broccoli, Brassica oleracea Hopkins, is particularly rich in glucoraphanin (better known as sulforaphane glucosinolate). Sulforaphane glucosinolate is the direct precursor to sulforaphane.
You would have to consume 500 grams of Fresh Broccoli or 100 grams of sprouts to acquire the same level of sulforaphane that you can get from one capsule of BroccoProtect containing 500mg BroccoRaphanin!
There are other choices available, but consider the BroccoProtect? benefits not found in any other sulforaphane product:
- all natural, vegetable concentrate
- Supercritical CO2 extraction of broccoli seed ? no chemical solvents are used in the extraction
- unmatched stability
- free of maltodextrin coating
How does sulforaphane work?
The dietary isothiocynate Sulforaphane targets numerous biological pathways that (1) modulate Phase I enzymes and (2) elevate Phase II enzymes that are present in all cells.
Once inside the cells, it sends a signal to individual cellular enzymes that turns on the natural cellular defenses housed in all cells. In some cases, sulforaphane is capable of restoring the gene’s activity towards normal cell progression. Cells are naturally equipped with their own internal defense system. Much of the cell?s ability to defend itself is due to two main factors, focusing on sulforaphane’s ability to produce:
- the antioxidants that quench harmful free radicals
- detoxification enzymes to break down toxins.
