The ingredients provided in one BroccoMax delayed release capsule have been demonstrated in vitro to yield approximately 8 mg of actual sulforaphane.

BroccoMax contains a standardized amount of SGS, Sulforaphane Glucosinolate (a.k.a. Glucoraphanin), and uses a patented process that preserves myrosinase, the enzyme in broccoli that metabolizes SGS in the small intestine to the organosulfur isothiocyanate compound sulforaphane.

Sulforaphane is a potent inducer of Phase 2 detoxifying enzymes and helps protect DNA. Detoxification enzymes activated by sulforaphane are active as antioxidants and free radical scavengers in the tissues.

Suggested Use

Take 1 to 3 Delayed Release Capsules (DRcaps) per day with food, dividing the capsules evenly among meals or as directed by your qualified healthcare professional.

Other Ingredients

Maltodextrin, silicon dioxide and calcium ascorbate. DRCaps consist of hydroxypropylmethylcellulose.

No wheat, no gluten, no soybeans, no dairy, no egg, no fish/shellfish, no peanuts/tree nuts.

Warnings

Note: If you have a medical condition, are pregnant, lactating, trying to conceive, under the age of 18, or taking medications, consult your healthcare professional before using this product.

Keep out of the reach of children.

BroccoMax, a probable waste of money
I was a regular user of this product because I don't care for the taste of broccoli, but want to get the considerable health benefits offered by sulforaphane. However, I came across a recent independent study that compared the release of sulforaphane derived from fresh broccoli to a broccoli extract supplement, which happened to be Jarrow BroccoMax, the same supplement that I was using. In the study, the subjects ingested 6 capsules of BroccoMax daily, which was 3-times the dose that I used.The study found that sulforphane release from broccoli depended on the presence of an enzyme in broccoli called myrosinase, that is released when the broccoli is chewed. This enzyme converts the precursor for sulforaphane in broccoli into active sulforaphane. But without the presence of myrosinase, the conversion to active sulforaphane is negligible. There is some conversion in the colon through the action of intestinal bacteria, but the amount of sulforaphane absorbed from this route is thought to be very low, and may not occur at all in some people. The point here is that BroccoMax doesn't actually contain sulforaphane, but rather the inactive precursor to sulforaphane, which must be converted by myrosinase into active sulforaphane. And there is no myrosinase in BroccoMax. I wrote to the company that produces this ingredient in BroccoMax(not Jarrow), and they refused to answer me when I asked them about the activity of the product. As such, it appears that BroccoMax is useless, and does not provide any significant sulforaphane activity. It's a complete waste of money, and I won't be using it anymore.

Broccoli very concentrated!

Posted by 5759480097669834289 on Feb 25, 2015

R3eally good product . . . strength is quite high. ALL of these products (in spite of the AU$ falling) are STILL cheaper than anything you can buy here in Australia.

hPylori killer!

Posted by Reviewer2158908 on Feb 16, 2015

I took this product in combination with other supplements to kill hPylori, when I couldn't (and didn't want to) take antibiotics. The biopsy of stomach lining a few months later showed NEGATIVE for hPylory! So glad for that result and for Broccomax availability!

for someone that is a smoker

Posted by 5336560690181242599 on Mar 17, 2014

I got this for my mother who doesn't want to give up smoking. She takes this and Olive leaf extract and finds it helps with energy and reduce symptoms of colds. She's in her late 60's so its hard for her to quit smoking.
