  • Comvita® Broccoli Extract Capsules - kick starts your body's own defence mechanism to neutralise harmful free radicals.

    Power of Broccoli – Broccoli is the most potent source  of Glucoraphanin which is converted into active Sulforaphane when digested.

    In 1992, research led by Dr. Paul Talalay, Director of the Laboratory for Molecular Pharmacology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (Baltimore, USA), identified a naturally occurring compound found in cruciferous vegetables (such as Broccoli) called Glucoraphanin.  Glucoraphanin appears to be the key natural compound responsible for the health benefits associated with Broccoli.

    While Broccoli is an excellent source of Glucoraphanin, the John Hopkins research team then went on to discover that the seeds of Broccoli contained up to 100 times the levels of Glucoraphanin when compared to the corresponding amount of Broccoli.  Glucoraphanin recharges our bodies own protective antioxidant defence enzymes, giving them the power to keep working.  This is especially important as a reduced defence enzyme level can lead to many chronic diseases.  

    The kick start effect of Glucoraphanin can last up to 72 hours.   This antioxidant booster effect lasts considerably longer than “normal” antioxidants, for example, vitamins E and C, which only work over a period of a few hours after ingestion.

    Glucoraphanin appears to be the key natural compound responsible for the health benefits associated with Broccoli.

    • Antioxidant Booster - Sulforaphane is thought to be one of the most potent naturally occurring inducers of the antioxidant defence enzymes.  It stimulates antioxidant activity to help neutralise the harmful free radicals that may cause damage to cells and tissues.
    • Guaranteed Dosage – the recommended daily dose is 2 capsules containing the equivalent to ½ head fresh broccoli or 30mg of Glucoraphanin.
    • Longer Lasting Protection - Sulforaphane works like a battery charger, recharging or kick-starting the antioxidant enzymes.  The ‘recharging’ effect of Sulforaphane can last up to 72 hours.   This ‘indirect’ antioxidant effect lasts longer than the ‘direct’ antioxidant effect.  For example Vitamins E and C only work over a period of a few hours after ingestion.
    • Protect Yourself – suitable for everyone wanting to maximise their health and have ongoing anti-oxidant protection.
  • Adults:  Take 2 capsules daily taken at meal times.

    WARNINGS:
    Pregnant or Lactating Women: Consult your healthcare practitioner before use.

    Feedback: I have recently been put onto Comvita Broccoli Extract to help with muscle recovery after major exercise.  I am a mountain biker who regularly rides 3-4 hours and in the past has suffered for 2-3 days after with sore leg/back muscles. I now take this product regularly and have seen a marked improvement in recovery times which allows me to ride a more regular routine. Overall i would highly recommend this product to those of you out there who exercise 2-4 times a week and push their bodies.
