Thorne Research Crucera-SGS®, 60 capsules
Each capsule of CRUCERA-SGS contains 50 mg of sulforaphane glucosinolate – equivalent to eating 2 lbs. of cooked broccoli.
CRUCERA-SGS is an advanced antioxidant formula that harnesses the chemoprotective properties of sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) – a natural substance from the seeds and sprouts of select broccoli varietals – for effective up-regulation of the body's natural phase II detoxification enzymes.* SGS is an indirect antioxidant that provides long-lasting cell protection from free radical damage for days after being consumed.*
When CRUCERA-SGS is ingested and begins breaking down in the gut, it releases sulforaphane, thereby activating the body's natural detoxification and antioxidant enzymes and protecting cells from free radical damage.*
Sulforaphane was identified in 1992 by researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and is thought to be the key factor behind the many health benefits attributed to cruciferous vegetables.* The research has produced more than 500 journal publications over the past two decades.
Typical antioxidants, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, or beta carotene, work "directly" to neutralize free radicals and are usually only effective for approximately three hours after ingestion. As an "indirect" antioxidant, CRUCERA-SGS induces the activity of phase II detoxification enzymes, which then triggers broad-spectrum antioxidant activity that can last for several days – long after CRUCERA-SGS has been consumed.*
