BroccoRaphanin® is an innovative broccoli raffinate produced from a special variety of raw materials to achieve a naturally high level of glucoraphanin, a phytochemical shown to promote cellular health.
The proprietary production process focuses on the conservation of broccoli’s essential bioactive components. When glucoraphanin is consumed it is converted to sulforaphane, an isothiocyanate, which is an inducer of the body’s natural detoxification system enzymes. These enzymes eliminate many types of free radicals and environmental pollutants and trigger antioxidant action.
BroccoRaphanin® supports health through the following actions:
The cellular mechanisms linked to the biological activity of BroccoRaphanin® include a protective effect attributed to sulforaphane. The protective effects of vegetables from the Brassica family, such as broccoli, are well documented. Scientific research shows the mechanism of action is derived from the conversion of the precursor glucoraphanin to sulforaphane by myrosinase, an enzyme present in the gut microflora.
