Broccoli - natural antioxidant and cell protection
Vegetables belonging to the cruciferous family like broccoli are associated with antioxidant and cell-protecting qualities. EnergyBalance Broccoli 14 Longlife contains a standardized concentration of sulforaphane glucosinolate extract from broccoli seeds. The body metabolizes sulforaphane glucosinolate, turning it into sulforaphane (iIsothiocyanate), a highly active antioxidant. Extensive studies show that sulforaphane strengthens the activity of detoxifying phase 2 enzymes and protect DNA.
Ideal antioxidant protection
The pomegranate is also referred to as "punica granatum"?in Latin. It is one of the oldest fruits eaten and used by people for medicinal purposes. Research on the pomegranate really began around seven years ago. Since then more than 200 papers have been published. Pomegranate juice has been proven to have conclusive antioxidant effects in clinical studies in vitro and in vivo. The latest research indicates that pomegranate polyphenols can also be used to prevent a number of common health problems.
Pomegranates contain ellagic acid, which is particularly effective when it comes to protecting cells
Ellagic acid is a polyphenol. Tests conducted at Hollings Cancer Center in South Carolina (MUSC) show that ellagic acid, which is a naturally occurring phytochemical, has a highly protective effect.
Dr. Daniel Nixon (MUSC) began researching ellagic acid in 1993. Ellagic acid is a naturally occurring polyphenol that can be found in high concentrations in certain types of fruits and nuts and particularly in pomegranates.
A study conducted by the Technion Institute in Haifa, Israel, found that eating pomegranates improves health. The research team, Prof. Jitzchak Neeman from the Faculty for Biotechnology and Food Engineering at the Technion Institute and Schai Schubert studied pomegranate wine and fresh pomegranate juice. Pomegranate juice is an effective antioxidant. Additional studies recommend drinking fresh pomegranate juice to prevent oxidation.
Pomegranate juice contains a variety of natural nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and flavanoid. Even the ancient Egyptians and other peoples living in the Middle East valued the pomegranate for its effectiveness against intestinal parasites. There's a reason why pomegranate juice is sold as a health drink.
