Glucosinolates are natural sulfur-containing compounds found in broccoli. Upon cooking/crushing, glucosinolates release isothiocyanates, powerful antioxidants such as sulforaphane. Clinical studies suggest that sulforaphane increases the activity of Phase II enzymes that inactivate harmful chemicals and increase the body’s natural defense against harmful free radicals. These enzymes may afford protection against certain carcinogens.
Astaxanthin is a member of carotenoids which has ability to neutralize reactive oxygen species. It is far more effective than other carotenoids at “singlet oxygen quenching,” which is a particular type of oxidation. Thanks to that, astaxanthin is a strong antioxidant and antiinflamatory agent with immunoprotective effect.
Selenium, zinc and vitamin E are essential nutrients for humans. Selenium is involved in the development and maintenance of immunocompetence and as an antioxidant to prevent oxidative stress. Zinc has a wide range of biological roles. It is vital for a variety of host immune defenses.
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin with antioxidant activity which acts synergistically with selenium. Vitamin C is the most important water-soluble biological antioxidant.
STRONG NATURE IMMUNO PROTECT is a dietary supplement based on BroccoPlus™, astaxanthin, vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium and zinc.
BroccoPlus™ is a Broccoli Sprout Extract, standardized for a combination of 0,3% sulforaphane and 6% glucosinolates.
