BroccoProtect is a synergistic blend of specially cultivated broccoli seed extract and broccoli sprout concentrate, providing sulforaphane glucosinolate and myrosinase enzyme for maximal conversion to broccoli’s beneficial compound, sulforaphane. It is offered in a delayed release capsule in order to further optimize this conversion and maximize bioavailability. BroccoProtect™ is designed to help support detoxification, antioxidant status and cellular health, as well as offer cardiovascular and neuronal protection.
As more people turn to nutrition to boost overall health, we have discovered that fruits and vegetables are among the most protective foods in our diet. Specifically, diets rich in broccoli and related cruciferous vegetables promote a wide range of health benefits, as confirmed in over 500 scientific papers. BroccoProtect contains a specially cultivated form of broccoli seed which is naturally rich in the compound sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS). This compound targets biological pathways that both modulate Phase I enzymes and elevate Phase II enzymes, allowing for full and proper detoxification of unsafe compounds. In addition to helping aid in the body’s detoxification, sulforaphane has been shown to have long-lasting antioxidant effects, offering protection from oxidizing free radicals. The enzyme myrosinase is required to convert SGS into its active form, sulforaphane, which is responsible for these beneficial effects. Some people’s bodies don’t make this conversion effectively, leaving them with less sulforaphane. The BroccoProtect formula includes myrosinase to ensure the full potency of sulforaphane.
Highlights of BroccoProtect:
- Contains a specially cultivated, proprietary form of broccoli seed grown and processed in North America; it is extracted using a clean, non-toxic process, resulting in an all-natural final product with no remaining solvent residue.
- Includes only 1.5 mcg of vitamin K (the equivalent of the amount contained in one potato) per two capsules, making this product safe for most people taking blood thinners under medical supervision.
- Unlike cruciferous veggies, it does not contain goitrogens, which are naturally occurring compounds that may block the uptake of iodine by the thyroid gland.
- Added myrosinase — many commercially available broccoli seed extract products do not contain myrosinase; BroccoProtect goes the extra mile to facilitate the conversion to active sulforaphane, and also includes preformed sulforaphane to ensure maximal efficacy.
