Broccoprotect dietary supplement capsules by Designs for Health
OncoSGS contains a specially cultivated form of broccoli seed known as BroccoRaphanin. This proprietary and patented variety of broccoli, Brassica Oleracea italica, is particularly rich in glucoraphanin (better known as sulforaphane glucosinolate). Sulforaphane glucosinolate is the direct precursor to sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is part of a family of compounds collectively known as isothiocyanates. Sulforaphane was isolated and identified by researchers in 1992.
There are currently over 500 journal publications, as well as documented epidemiological evidence, showing that diets rich in broccoli and broccoli sprouts are chemoprotective and may reduce the risk of many forms of cancer. Scientists also believe that sulforaphane glucosinolate may boost the body�s own antioxidant defense system, including the upregulation of phase 2 detoxification enzymes. For this reason, it is often referred to as an �indirect antioxidant�. The phase 2 enzymes that are induced demonstrate broad-spectrum antioxidant ability, which may remain active in the body for as long as 96 hours. Sulforaphane glucosinolate is also particularly useful in the fact that it upregulates phase 2 enzymes without upregulating the potentially pro-carcinogen-producing phase 1 enzymes.There are other choices available, but consider the BroccoProtect benefits not found in any other sulforaphane product:
- All natural, vegetable concentrate
- Supercritical CO2 extraction of broccoli seed - no chemical solvents are used in the extraction
- Unmatched stability
- Free of maltodextrin coating
The dietary isothiocynate Sulforaphane targets numerous biological pathways that (1) modulate Phase I enzymes and (2) elevate Phase II enzymes that are present in all cells.
Once inside the cells, it 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 genes activity towards normal cell progression. Cells are naturally equipped with their own internal defense system. Much of the cells ability to defend itself is due to two main factors, focusing on sulforaphanes ability to produce:
- The antioxidants that quench harmful free radicals
- Detoxification enzymes to break down toxins.
