We know that cruciferous vegetables are good for us. But most of us cook those vegetables first, which breaks down important nutrients such as myrosinase and glucosinolate. Rather than try to get everyone to eat their cruciferous vegetables raw, we’ve created our new Optimized Broccoli formula to give you the cell-protective and health-promoting benefits, without the leafy greens.
The (healthy) biology of broccoli
No one thinks broccoli is cool. But broccoli’s biochemistry is actually pretty interesting. Broccoli contains several health-promoting compounds. Glucoraphanin, myrosinase and sulforaphane are the ones that protect cell health and encourage healthy cell function.
Myrosinase actually helps turn glucoraphanin into cell-health-promoting sulforaphane. What’s interesting is that broccoli’s physical makeup separates glucoraphanin and myrosinase compounds from each other. That’s why chopped raw broccoli has greater benefits than whole sprouts.
Innovative partitioned encapsulation technique
So why not just pack a softgel full of sulforaphane? Because the compound is unstable. To enjoy the cellular health benefits of broccoli, you have to get the active compounds in broccoli to metabolize into as much sulforaphane as possible, and do so inside your digestive system.
Life Extension has separated myrosinase from glucoraphanin in a dual-layered tablet to optimize glucoraphanin-to-sulforaphane conversion. By keeping the two apart until they’re in your stomach, we’ve optimized the amount of sulforaphane you can get from a broccoli extract supplement. We also added additional myrosinase to help boost sulforaphane production even further.
Watercress, rosemary and more
In addition to broccoli, plants like watercress and rosemary provide phytonutrients such as glucosinolates, isothiocyanates, carnosic acid and carnosol—active compounds that promote healthy estrogen metabolism and cell division. Cabbage extract packed with benzyl isothiocyanate (BITC) also helps maintain cell health.
Lastly, this formula contains DIM (diindolylmethane), a compound shown to favorably modulate estrogen metabolism and encourage healthy liver enzymes that help inhibit estrogen metabolites and xenoestrogens (estrogen-like environmental compounds).
