The Many Exciting Benefits of Sulforaphane, Part 1
August 29, 2017
Sulforaphane is one of the most exciting nutrients in the integrative medicine armamentarium, harnessing the chemo-preventive benefits of cruciferous vegetables. It is no mere passing fad—its value is substantiated by numerous scientific studies. Today we talk to an expert on sulforaphane, Dr. David Haase, Chief Medical and Innovation Director for XYMOGEN, a maker of high-quality nutraceuticals dispensed by health professionals. Sulforaphane is chemopreventive; it has exhibited activity against a wide range of cancers. In addition, it is neuroprotective; it may slow neurodegenerative processes in the brain, hence its application to Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease, and even autism, where a recent study showed it improved speech and behavior. Animal research suggests it might even be an adjunct to weight loss. And it is a strong detoxifier, which explains its role in ameliorating allergies. How best to harness the benefits of sulforaphane from food? What if you can't stand the taste of cruciferous vegetables? Will supplements deliver equivalent sulforaphane benefits? What supplements are backed by research? Is there a danger of suppressing thyroid function due to goitrogenic effects of compounds in cruciferous vegetables? Sulforaphane and Sulforaphane ES are now available online from Dr. Hoffman's supplement store at Fullscript. Click HERE for part 2.
