New BroccoPlus™ combines glucosinolates and sulforaphane for potent protection
IRVINE, CA – It appears that Cyvex Nutrition continues its trend-leading propensity with its official launch of BroccoPlus™, a novel dietary supplement containing broccoli sprouts shown in studies to be powerful antioxidants.
BroccoPlus™ is a nutraceutical ingredient designed to deliver the two most potent health-promoting compounds found in broccoli – glucosinolates and sulforaphane – in one convenient concentrated powder. BroccoPlus™ joins BroccoPhane™ and BroccoSinolate™ in the company’s novel antioxidant green team portfolio.
Glucosinolates are naturally occurring in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and are higher in concentration in broccoli sprouts. Glucosinolates have been shown to influence important enzymes of the liver and intestines, which are involved in detoxification and excretion of carcinogenic chemicals.
Sulforaphane, an isothionate found abundantly in broccoli sprouts, has been shown to increase the activity of Phase II enzymes, such as quinine reductase and glutathione transferase, that inactivate carcinogens in the body. Sulforaphane is also a potential bacteriocide against Helicobacter pylori, a pathogenic bacterium known to cause gastric and peptic ulcers.
“BroccoPlus™, which combines 6% glucosinolates with sulforaphane, is a potent solution for fortifying the body’s complex defense system to protect against pathogenic bacteria, harmful free radicals and carcinogenic compounds,” says Charlene Lee, MBA, marketing director for Cyvex Nutrition. “Both glucosinolates and sulforaphane offer formulators tremendous value in antioxidant formulas, and our Green Team of antioxidants is unsurpassed in this category.”
