WHY IS SULFORAPHANE GETTING SO MUCH ATTENTION?

The level of excitement about sulforaphane among scientists across the world has been rising steadily year by year, and it's now higher than ever.

The FDA limits the types of scientific results we can share with you and the language we can use.

Below are some of the most exciting facts about sulforaphane that we are permitted to share.

We encourage you to do your own research about sulforaphane:

EACH SERVING OF BROQ DELIVERS MORE THAN DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF SULFORAPHANE OF ANY OTHER SUPPLEMENT

THE POWER OF NRF2

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.

Studies have found beneficial effects related to NRF2 from daily doses of sulforaphane between 20mg and 40mg.

10 BENEFITS OF BROQ,

BACKED BY SCIENCE

 

1. HELPS FIGHT INFLAMMATION

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.

These markers are known to have profound effects on overall health, energy level and cognition.

Individual results may vary, and not everyone may achieve these results.

2. HELPS THE BODY ELIMINATE TOXINS

Sulforaphane has been robustly shown to increase Phase 2 detoxification enzymes.

These enzymes are known to help the body eliminate carcinogens and other toxins, such as those found in pesticides.

One of the worst—and most common—toxins we are all exposed to is benzene, which is in car exhaust and second-hand smoke.

Sulforaphane has been shown to increase the body’s ability to eliminate benzene by 60% or more.

Individual results may vary, and not everyone may achieve these results.

3. HELPS MAINTAIN HEALTHY CHOLESTEROL LEVELS

Multiple studies have shown that sulforaphane helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

Individual results may vary, and not everyone may achieve these results. 

This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

 

4. HELPS MAINTAIN A HEALTHY HEART

Multiple studies have shown that sulforaphane helps support cardiovascular health. 

 

This is not surprising, as sulforaphane has been shown to help fight inflammation and to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, both of which are important to cardiovascular health.

Individual results may vary, and not everyone may achieve these results. 

This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

 

5. HELPS MAINTAIN PROPER IMMUNE FUNCTION

Through its effect on the NRF2 pathway, sulforaphane helps maintain proper immune function.

Individual results may vary, and not everyone may achieve these results. 

This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

 

6. PROMOTES AUTOPHAGY, WHICH SUPPORTS HEALTHY AGING

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).

Individual results may vary, and not everyone may achieve these results.

7. SUPPORTS BRAIN HEALTH AND COGNITIVE FUNCTION

Sulforaphane readily crosses the blood-brain barrier, and it has been shown to increase BDNF (brain derived neurotropic factor), which protects existing brain cells and promotes the growth of new ones—as well as increased connectivity among brain cells.

In addition, NRF2 has been shown to support brain health and cognitive function, and sulforaphane is a potent activator of NRF2.

Individual results may vary, and not everyone may achieve these results.

8. SUPPORTS HEALTHY JOINTS AND MOBILITY

Individual results may vary, and not everyone may achieve these results. 

This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Sulforaphane has been shown to reduce the production of enzymes that break down the protective cartilage that keeps joints working smoothly.

Sulforaphane also supports joint health via its activation of NRF2.

 

9. HELPS MAINTAIN HEALTHY BODY WEIGHT

Individual results may vary, and not everyone may achieve these results. 

This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Sulforaphane has robustly been shown to increase brown adipose tissue ("brown fat"), which helps maintain healthy body weight.

Sulforaphane has also been shown to increase leptin responsiveness, which decreases hunger.

 

10. HELPS MAINTAIN POSITIVE MOOD

Individual results may vary, and not everyone may achieve these results. 

This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Sulforaphane has been shown to help maintain positive mood.

Biomarkers for inflammation, such as IL-6, are associated with persistent negative mood, and sulforaphane reduces IL-6.
