KINGS PARK, NY, February 22, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- There are hundreds of studies that now show something in cruciferous vegetables that protects animals from cancer. In 1992, scientists from Johns Hopkins University first identified the active component called Sulforaphane.
Where is Sulforaphane most prevalent? Mom was right! Eat your broccoli! Broccoli contains more of this chemical than any other cruciferous vegetable, but research has demonstrated that the Sulforaphane content of mature broccoli is highly variable and that it is present at a much higher concentration in broccoli seeds. Specifically, the content in 200mg of broccoli seed extract or one ounce of broccoli sprouts is equivalent to the amount present in 20 oz. of full-grown broccoli.
Although eating broccoli has much to offer, one must admit eating that much broccoli can cause much discomfort. Amazingly, Xymogen has developed a better way to get your Sulforaphane. It is found in their remarkable product Oncoplex. Taking just 1 capsule of Oncoplex would be like eating the equivalent of 3 3/4 lbs. of mature broccoli.
What is the effect of using Oncoplex? It appears as if Sulforaphane in Oncoplex is chemo-protective. According to Dr. Talay, Chief Researcher at Johns Hopkins University Chemo-protection may lower a persons risk for developing cancer by building up the body's own defense Chemo-protection takes advantage of the body's phase 2 detoxification enzymes. These enzymes help neutralize cancer-causing chemicals and free radicals before they can damage DNA and initiate the start of cancer.
The benefits of Oncoplex are not only Chemo-protective but include:
- Supports Phase 2 Detoxification Enzymes in the Presence of Carcinogens
- Supports Extended Antioxidant Activity (up to 72 hours)
- Supports Healthy Gastric Mucosa
- Supports Healthy Macula
- Supports Healthy Blood Pressure and Blood Vessels
- Supports Healthy Joints
Oncoplex is a great solution to protect us from a toxic world.
