All natural broccoli sprout formula with sulforaphane; 90 capsules; BroccoCapâ„˘ is a high potency, broccoli sprout formulation. However, it contains much more than JUST PLAIN broccoli sprouts! Through unique sprouting processes, this formula becomes concentrated with sulforaphane (broccoli). This means that the nutrient content of this formula surpasses those grown under regular conditions. ► What is sulforaphane?
It is the broccoli sprout, NOT the mature broccoli plant we eat, which exhibits the highest levels of sulforaphane. The sulforaphane levels of the mature broccoli plant are relatively non-existent. Pesticides and poor soil conditions effect the nutritional quality of our fruits and vegetables. Even organic produce varies greatly in nutritional content. Remember the old adage, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Eating right and taking nutritional supplements helps support general well being and immune health.
BroccoCapÂ® also contains indole-3-carbinols. What are indole-3-carbinols?
Indole-3-carbinol (C9H9NO) is produced by the breakdown of the glucosinolate glucobrassicin compound concentrated in high amounts in cruciferous vegetables, e.g. broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage. Indole-3-carbinols have been shown (in cellular and animal studies) to have benefits for prostate and breast health. Specifically for breast health, indole-3-carbinols alters estrogen metabolism (possible inactivation).
Who should consider this formula?
Individuals who are interested in increasing their intake of potent antioxidants, especially those who are over the age of 45. Anyone who feels they get an inadequate intake of vegetables or who are concerned about the remaining nutrient content of the vegetables they do consume.
