What is Broccoli extract?
Broccoli extract is material concentrated so as to achieve maximum concentrations of the active substances found in broccoli.
Among the substances responsible for the health-promoting activity of broccoli, there are, for example, glucosinolates, the most popular being sulphoraphane and indole-3-carbinol as well as its derivative, diindolylmethane. Those components help to optimise oestrogen metabolism by inhibiting the pathways that lead to the synthesis of carcinogenic forms and reducing the activity of the enzyme aromatase, which reduces androgen conversion to oestrogenic hormones. The content of carotenoids, such as lutein and zeaxanthin, helps to support the functioning of the eyes and allows a potential vision improvement. The plant’s general anti-inflammatory and antioxidant potential, on the other hand, helps to enhance the overall health of the organism.
