Solaray Activated Broccoli Seed Extract Description
Brassica oleracea italica
10% Sulforaphane Glucosinolates
Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable in the brassica family. Broccoli contains a unique class of phytochemicals known as glucosinolates, including glucoraphanin. When broccoli is consumed, chewing breaks down the glucoraphanin with the support of an enzyme called myrosinase. When glucoraphanin and myrosinase are mixed together, the compound known as sulforaphane is produced. Solaray® Activated Broccoli Seed Extract supplies the myrosinase enzyme to support this process. Freeze-dried broccoli sprouts are added to this formula because they contain both glucosinolates and myrosinase enzymes.
