HEALTH TIP from Dr. Vliet – TruGlucoraphanin

Our grandmothers always said “Eat your vegetables!” So you have likely heard for years that broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables are great sources of nutritional benefits for all kinds of medical disorders including cancer. Broccoli is a “superfood” when it comes to food sources that support the immune system, provides antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions, helps with detoxification at the cellular level, supports cellular metabolism, and cell-life regulation. These benefits are found with all cruciferous vegetables and are attributed to their naturally occurring phytochemical – glucoraphanin. Glucoraphanin is also known as sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS), a precursor building block for the biologically active, yet highly reactive and unstable compound, isothiocyanate sulforaphane, more commonly called just sulforaphane (SFN).

But more recent research has led scientists to understand the crucial role of the enzyme myrosinase (from mustard seeds) added to glucoraphanin, which actually enhances the bioavailability of sulforaphane 3-4 fold. Scientists have also identified Vitamin C as a strong activator for myrosinase enzyme activity.

That brings us to the new product in our Truth for Health nutraceutical lineup: TruGlucoraphanin™ which has been uniquely formulated to provide the optimal 4:1 ratio of glucoraphanin to myrosinase, with vitamin C included for maximum bioavailability. If you are taking sulforaphane or glucoraphanin supplements, consider changing to our exclusive professional formula that contains these important cofactors—myrosinase and vitamin C—for maximum bioavailability and effectiveness.

If you are not taking sulforaphane or glucoraphanin supplements and not eating enough broccoli and other cruciferous veggies, there are many reasons to consider adding TruGlucoraphanin™:

1) Antioxidant and Detoxification Support:
• Sulforaphane is an effective, long-acting, indirect antioxidant and significant inducer of phase II detoxification enzymes that make substances produced during our body’s metabolism and chemical processes more soluble in water, as well as less reactive towards cell components and easier to be eliminated in the urine.
• Sulforaphane stimulates the expression of critical enzymes (via the KEAP1/Nrf2/ARE pathways) that support antioxidant activity, redox cycling, and phase II detoxification.
• The activation of transcription factor Nrf2 results in increased output of enzymes (primarily glutathione and superoxide dismutase) that can extend antioxidant activity longer than direct antioxidants, such as vitamins C, E, and beta-carotene.

2) Support for Cellular Health and Cell-Life Cycles:
• Sulforaphane has a multiple protective roles for our cells to help maintain cellular health, support healthy cell-life cycles, and promote a healthy inflammatory response. For these reasons, sulforaphane helps decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease, helps prevent cancer, and helps autism and osteoporosis.
• Sulforaphane’s protective mechanisms include an inhibitory effect on certain phase I enzymes and the induction of phase II enzymes and their effect on Nrf2 pathways.
• Sulforaphane is also protective in animal models of diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, and other inflammatory processes, likely reflecting additional actions of Nrf2 and interactions with other signaling pathways.
• These protective effects are cause for extensive research in the use of sulforaphane in cancer prevention and as a complement to cancer therapy. (Pioneered by Dr. Paul Talalay of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine over 30 years ago).

I really believe in the major health benefits we can achieve from eating a diet rich in colorful fruits and vegetables on a regular and consistent basis. But sometimes life gets in the way of optimal nutrition every day, and it may be necessary to fortify these important nutrients and phytochemicals with well-chosen supplements from a trusted source. That is where our TruGlucoraphanin™ formulation is really useful.

For optimal antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and immune-boosting benefits, definitely chop and chew your broccoli, kale, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage, and add a sprinkle of mustard seeds. You can add extra “health insurance” with our exciting new supplement with TruGlucoraphanin™ for maximum benefit.

To your improving health!
