Not all broccoli supplements are created equal…
Research shows 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
BroccoRaphanin™ is a proprietary and patented variety of broccoli (Brassica oleracea italica) and is particularly rich in glucoraphanin -better known as sulforaphane glucosinolate. Sulforaphane glucosinolate is the direct precursor to sulforaphane.
How does sulforaphane work?
The dietary isothiocynate sulforaphane targets numerous biological enzyme pathways that are present in all cells.
Once inside the cells, sulforaphane 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: sulforaphane’s ability to produce (1) the antioxidants that quench harmful free radicals and (2) detoxification enzymes to break down toxins.
