SGS broccoli seed extract is a natural source of glucoraphanin, a phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables. Glucoraphanin is the precursor to sulforaphane, a potent natural inducer of Phase 2 detoxification enzymes. These enzymes eliminate many types of free radicals and environmental pollutants and trigger ongoing antioxidant action that lasts for as much as three days.
“This is an important step in establishing the commercial value of SGS as the highest quality broccoli product available for broad consumer use to support health and wellness. Importantly, the panel did not just evaluate the safety of the finished broccoli extract, but extensively reviewed our manufacturing processes and controls to ensure that SGS meets the highest standards,” remarked Tony Talalay, CEO of BPP.
The acknowledgment from the independent expert panel, consisting of pharmacologists and toxicologists, comes after a comprehensive and critical review of available information and data on the safety of the use of aqueous broccoli seed extract powder in selected foods for the general population.
