We are excited to announce our new and incredibly potent: organic broccoli cruciferous sprout. Our Glucosinolates & Sulforaphanes is a powerhouse, providing a four fold increase in the phase 2 enzymes inducing and cancer preventing molecules for which it is named.
Notice that the label above guarantees a Glucosinolate level of 15,000 ppm, a Glucoraphanin level of 10,000 ppm and a Sulforaphane potential of 4,000 ppm. However, as you can see in the Certificate of Analysis below, the actual levels of these three most important ingredients are much higher, with the Glucosinolates at 21,359 ppm, the Glucoraphanins at 19,407 ppm, and the Sulforaphane yield at 8,733 ppm. Our old beloved Cruciferous Sprouts product offered a 1500 ppm sulforaphane potential yield.
Recommended dose: one to two capsules daily. Excellent before bed for liver detox.
Sulforaphane (SF) is a phytochemical that displays both anticarcinogenic and anticancer activity. SF modulates many cancer‐related events, including susceptibility to carcinogens, cell death, cell cycle, angiogenesis, invasion and metastasis. Zhang and Tang (2007) review its discovery and development as a cancer chemopreventive agent.
The preponderance of evidence available from in vitro, animal, and human studies supports the association of sulforaphane with phase II enzyme inductions. Broccoli sprouts are the richest source of glucoraphanin which is the direct precursor to sulforaphane. Since broccoli sulforaphane is one of the most potent inducers of phase II enzymes, exploration into broccoli’s impact on other areas of human health, such as cardiovasucular health and upper airway immunity, has been suggested (James et al., 2012).
In Qidong, China, a region where exposures to food-and air-borne carcinogens has been considerable, clinical trials indicate that interventions with well characterized preparations of broccoli sprouts may enhance the detoxication of aflatoxins and air-borne toxins, which may in turn attenuate their associated health risks including cancer in exposed individuals (Kensler et al., 2012).
We will continue to discuss this powerhouse product in our next email.
