Scientists have identified specific extracts from cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprout that help maintain healthy hormone levels. Maintaining optimal hormone balance is essential to any antiaging strategy. Triple-Action Cruciferous Vegetable Extract combines these plant extracts into the most comprehensive food-based plant compilation for cell protection yet.
I3C (indole-3-carbinol) and DIM (di-indolyl-methane) favorably modulate estrogen metabolism and induce liver detoxification enzymes to help neutralize potentially harmful estrogen metabolites and xenoestrogens (potentially toxic, estrogen-like environmental chemicals).
1-4 Extracts of broccoli, watercress, and rosemary provide glucosinolates, isothiocyanates, carnosic acid, and carnosol—bioactive compounds that have a multitude of favorable effects on estrogen metabolism and cell division.5-8 Apigenin, a powerful plant flavonoid found in plants such as parsley and celery, is also added to the formula to boost cell protection,9 while 25 milligrams of cabbage extract, a natural source of benzyl isothiocyanate (BITC), are included to maintain cell health.10
