Description

We use pure broccoli powder from controlled organic cultivation, carefully processed to obtain the maximum amount of ingredients for our capsules. By using the whole plant, without extracts or isolated substances, the ingredients are as bioavailable as possible.


Sulforaphane is a secondary plant substance that is only found in certain vegetables. Sulforaphane is particularly abundant in broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower.

The superfood effect of broccoli is said to be good for your health due to the combination of different ingredients. The namely contains the following healthy active ingredients:

Zinc, manganese, folic acid, iron, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamins B1, B2 and B6 and magnesium.


Broccoli powder also contains many so-called secondary plant substances such as glucosinolates and flavonoids.

Sulforaphane - the power substance from broccoli

Sulforaphane is a secondary plant substance from the isothiocyanate family (also called mustard oils or mustard oil glycosides).

Mustard oil glycosides are found in particular in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, radishes, white cabbage, red cabbage, kohlrabi, horseradish, rocket, cress and mustard and give these vegetables their characteristic pungent taste.

Sulforaphane - clever strategist in the fight against free radicals

Whereas vitamin C or vitamin E are kamikaze in the fight against free radicals, sulforaphane acts strategically from the background and activates the body's own detoxification enzymes in the liver - the so-called phase II detoxification enzymes.

Since sulforaphane works indirectly here, it is not consumed itself and is highly active throughout the body - for four to five days.

Besides sulforaphane, broccoli contains many vitamins and minerals:

  • Vitamins B1, B2
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A
  • Potassium
  • Phosphorus
  • Calcium
  • Iron

When broccoli is prepared by steaming or boiling, the content is considerably reduced.

Broccoli is the most important source of sulforaphane glucosinate, which is found in particularly high concentration in the flower sprouts. These are harvested when they are about 10 cm long, before the flowers open. Sulforaphane acts as a phase 2 protein inducer. Thus, this natural ingredient of broccoli acts nutritionally as a powerful antioxidant, which studies have shown. Oxidants are inhibited or intercepted from their formation. Eating broccoli is a contribution to cellular health.

Hints:

Organic broccoli powder is a natural product and may therefore be subject to variations in appearance, smell, colour and/or taste. However, these do not affect the quality in any way. We are also convinced that we do not use separating agents such as magnesium salts, as these can reduce bioavailability. Our capsules are also free of colourings and preservatives, any animal ingredients, lactose and gluten, yeast and flavourings as well as any kind of additives.

We recommend taking 1 x 3 capsules per day (1200mg ). The capsules should be taken unchewed and also with sufficient liquid in the morning or evening with meals.


Our broccoli capsules are a food supplement and are suitable for adults aged 18 and over. Food supplements are not intended as a substitute for a balanced and varied diet or a healthy lifestyle. Do not exceed the recommended daily intake. Store in a cool, dry place out of the reach of children.

Sulforaphane - the power substance from broccoli

First it makes its mark in cancer prophylaxis, then even in cancer therapy. Its potential is discovered in the area of arthritic diseases and finally it is shown that it can also be helpful in respiratory diseases such as asthma and hay fever.

We are talking about sulforaphane, a secondary plant substance from the isothiocyanate family (also called mustard oils or mustard oil glycosides).

Mustard oil glycosides are found in particular in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, radishes, white cabbage, red cabbage, kohlrabi, horseradish, rocket, cress and mustard and give these vegetables their characteristic pungent taste.


But what exactly is sulforaphane?

The secondary plant substance is only found in certain types of vegetables. It is particularly concentrated in broccoli and Brussels sprouts. It is said to have various effects, for example on cancer, arthritis and respiratory diseases.

The consumption of certain vegetables alone is of course not suitable as a treatment for a (serious) disease. Sulforaphane can, however, positively support the therapy.

Sulforaphane is said to have a strong antioxidant effect. Background: In 1992, the secondary plant substance was isolated for the first time by the scientist Paul Talalay from John Hopkins University. Unlike vitamin E or vitamin C, for example, sulforaphane does not "die" in the body's fight against free radicals. It is reported to activate certain detoxification enzymes in the liver. These are also called phase II detoxification enzymes.

These enzymes are then supposed to destroy free radicals so effectively that they can no longer damage the cells. Sulforaphane is therefore only supposed to work indirectly and thus be available to the body for longer.

Broccoli also contains minerals and trace elements such as calcium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc and iron. Vitamins B1, B2, B6 and E. Ascorbic acid and carotene (better known as provitamin A).

We are often asked why sulforaphane is not packed in the capsules, why it is better to take its precursor, glucoraphanin, in combination with myrosinase, which occurs naturally in broccoli. Some suppliers simply offer dried sulforaphane instead of glucoraphanin. Disadvantage: Sulforaphane extract is usually not very stable. It is better for the effect to combine glucoraphanin with the enzyme myrosinase. After consumption, one part is then quickly broken down into the active component sulforaphane and another part is broken down more slowly in the intestine by the intestinal bacteria. This makes the sulforaphane available to the body in a very fresh form.
