Natural Sulforaphane Supplement
BSPROUT™ produces naturally Australian grown Broccoli Sprout Powder with the active beneficial compound Sulforaphane.
Broccoli Sprouts have been one the most studied plant-based foods on the planet, this is because of their natural ability to produce an excess of beneficial compounds known as Phytonutrients.
Some known facts about broccoli sprouts:
- Broccoli Sprouts were discovered in 1992 by the Johns Hopkins University to produce up to 100x more phytonutrients than fully mature broccoli.
- The compound known as Sulforaphane found in broccoli sprouts has been involved in over 5000+ Publish Studies all around the world.
Sulforaphane helps activate Antioxidants
The best known benefit of broccoli sprouts is their ability to produce a Sulfur based compound known as Sulforaphane.
Sulforaphane known benefits:
Phase II Detoxification
Sulforaphane is known to be a potent inducer of Phase ll detoxification enzymes, these enzymes are called glutathione transferases, epoxide hydrolase, NAD(P)H: quinone reductase, and glucuronosyl transferases. The role of these enzymes is to attach to harmful toxins & carcinogens and detox them from your body.
Oxidative Stress & Cancer
Sulforaphane inhibits carcinogenesis at multiple organ sites, including skin, lung, bladder, breast, colon and stomach. In many disease states, in addition to cancer, oxidative and/or inflammatory stress has a crucial role in pathogenesis, and often causes the mutation of DNA. NFE2-related factor 2 (NRF2) is able to suppress such stress (even the mutation of DNA) and thus prevent disease, so the ability of pharmacological agents to activate NRF2 is an essential component of their desirable actions.
Reduction of Inflammation
Sulforaphane activated Nrf2 contributes to the anti-inflammatory process by orchestrating the recruitment of inflammatory cells and regulating gene expression through the antioxidant response element (ARE). The Nrf2/ARE signaling pathway mainly regulates anti-inflammatory gene expression and inhibits the progression of inflammation.
