1. BROQ BASICS

What is BROQ?


BROQ is a natural supplement that delivers a powerful compound called sulforaphane, which has many benefits for your health, body and brain. BROQ delivers more than double the amount of bioactive sulforaphane per serving of any other product you can buy. ( See how it compares.) BROQ is one of only two supplements in existence that contain sulforaphane. (Other supplements contain substances that your body can convert into sulforaphane.) BROQ is the brand name in North America for the French product Prostaphane, which has been tested extensively in clinical trials.




Is BROQ really different from other sulforaphane supplements?


Yes. See how it compares.




How do you pronounce BROQ?


It rhymes with "rock"!




What is sulforaphane?


Sulforaphane is the compound in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables that is responsible for their many health benefits. There's been an explosion of research about sulforaphane in the past ten years. For more, check out The science of BROQ.




Can I get my sulforaphane from broccoli?


The short answer is: yes, but not nearly the level of sulforaphane that's in BROQ. You'd have to eat approximately three pounds of raw broccoli a day to get the equivalent of one daily serving of BROQ. (Cooking greatly reduces the amount of sulforaphane.) And, even then, you won't know how much you're getting, as there's a lot of variability due to freshness and growing conditions.




How about broccoli sprouts?


If you're prepared to do the work, yes, you can get as much sulforaphane as in a daily serving of BROQ. But you'd need to grow and eat about this much raw broccoli sprouts each day:




Do you have a fun 5-minute video that tells me the story of BROQ?


Thank you for asking! Yes, we do!! 😀 Here it is:





2. BROQ BENEFITS

Where can I find out more about the potential health benefits of BROQ?


The FDA limits the types of scientific results we can share with you and the language we can use. We encourage you to do your own research about sulforaphane: Visit www.sulforaphane.science Search for sulforaphane on Pubmed Search for sulforaphane on Google Scholar Search for sulforaphane on YouTube These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.




Why is NRF2 so important?


Sulforaphane is the most potent naturally occurring molecule that activates the NRF2 genetic pathway, which regulates over 200 genes. Many of these genes are associated with keeping us healthy—by fighting oxidative stress and inflammation—and by inactivating harmful compounds we are exposed to on a daily basis.

Will I feel the effects of taking BROQ?


Probably not. And, if you do, it will be a gradual, slow change. This is true of any supplement or vitamin that affects your overall health. Any change that takes place happens too gradually to be noticed. You might want to ask your doctor whether there are any tests that could be performed before you start taking BROQ—and then again, say, six months after taking it daily. (Give them a link to our site!) If you do that, we'd love to hear what you find!! These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.




Can BROQ slow or reverse aging?


We wouldn't state it in such bold terms. The Fountain of Youth has not yet been discovered. However, the high level of sulforaphane in BROQ does affect factors closely tied to aging: (1) Oxidative stress is strongly associated with aging. ( Source) Sulforaphane is the most potent natural molecule that actives NRF2, which reduces oxidative stress. ( Source) (2) Inflammation is the single most important driver of human aging. Virtually all people who live to be 100 have very low inflammation.​ Sulforaphane has been shown, in multiple studies, to significantly reduce markers of inflammation, such as C-reactive protein and IL-6. (See sources here.) (3) Autophagy is the body’s way of cleaning out damaged cells to make way for new ones.​ “Auto” means self and “phagy” means eat; so, literally, the word describes cells eating themselves. ​Autophagy is the primary source of the many health benefits of fasting.​ Sulforaphane has been shown to promote autophagy (without fasting). (See sources here.) These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.




How actively is sulforaphane being studied by scientists around the world?


Scientific interest in sulforaphane has exploded in recent years, as shown in the chart below (Pubmed articles about sulforaphane, by year) Sulforaphane is now one of the most actively studied dietary compounds in existence. New findings about sulforaphane are being published regularly.





 

3. BROQ USAGE

How much BROQ do I take each day?


One serving of BROQ is two capsules, which contain a total of 20mg of sulforaphane. Many studies have found significant benefits from this amount of sulforaphane. A number of studies used a daily dosage of 60mg of sulforaphane, the equivalent of six capsules of BROQ. Those studies found substantial benefits without any notable adverse effects.




When do I take BROQ?


We recommend taking BROQ with meals, to avoid minor stomach discomfort that might occur otherwise. If you're taking more than two capsules daily, split the dosage across meals. Time of day is not important.




How do I store BROQ?


BROQ contains highly bioactive sulforaphane. (The word "bioactive" simply means that the sulforaphane will enter circulation in your body.) To maintain full potency, keep refrigerated after opening. Keep BROQ away from heat sources and prolonged direct sunlight.
