• A source of antioxidants
There are over 500 journal publications, as well as documented epidemiological evidence, showing that diets rich in broccoli promote a wide range of health benefits. BroccoProtect™ contains a specially cultivated form of broccoli seed known as BroccoRaphanin™, which is standardized to contain 10% Sulforaphane glucosinolate, the direct precursor to sulforaphane. Designs for Health chose this superior standardized extract because it supplies a large amount of beneficial components from high quality broccoli.
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 500 mg of BroccoRaphanin™!
Research shows that diets rich in broccoli are chemoprotective, promote reduction of PSA levels, and possess anti-inammatory properties.
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. The dietary isothiocynate sulforaphane targets numerous biological pathways that modulate Phase I enzymes and elevate Phase II enzymes 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. 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 the antioxidants that quench harmful free radicals and detoxication enzymes to break down toxins.
