Broccoli has come under the spotlight as one of the healthiest vegetables thanks to a profile of powerful antioxidants, and a spate of studies investigating its potential to protect against diseases, including some cancers. It''s ability to fight Helicobacteri pylori, the bacterium responsible for most stomach cancers, has been demonstrated in a human study for the first time by Japanese researchers. Vegetables like broccoli and cabbage, known as "cruciferous" vegetables after the cross-shape that their flowers grow in, contain glucosinolate. This is broken down into active sulforaphane compounds when the plant is cut or chewed. In 2002, Dr Jed Fahey and his team demonstrated in a mouse model that sulforaphane can inhibit Helicobacter infections and block the formation of gastric tumors.
Broccoli & Cruciferous vegetables are proven cancer-fighters, powerful antioxidants, and nutritionally sound! We heartily recommend supplementation with a Broccoli/Cruciferous Extract every day.
