Cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli, are well known for their health benefits. Some of these health benefits include cardiovascular support and a reduced risk of cancer. The active ingredients that contribute to these benefits are glucosinolates, including sulforaphane glucosinolate.
Broccoli Blend contains a combination of broccoli seed extract and broccoli sprout concentrate to provide sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) and the myrosinase (MYR) enzyme for maximal conversion to sulforaphane (SFN). This results in maximum bioavailability and absorption, and optimal beneficial properties.
Support detoxification, antioxidant capacity, cellular health, and cardiovascular protection with Broccoli Blend.† Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable that has been studied to possibly possess anti-cancer, cardiovascular health, and antioxidant properties. However, unfortunately, many people do not consume enough cruciferous vegetables in their everyday diet. Broccoli Blend can assist with supplying these nutrients in a convenient, easy to use capsule.†
This nutraceutical supports the nutritional focus of the 5 Essentials®.

|Contains the myrosinase enzyme, which aids in maximal conversion of SGS to SFN.||Does not contain this enzyme.|
|MYR catalyzes SGS to SFN conversion at a rate of approximately 80%.||SGS is absorbed into the bloodstream unchanged, reducing the amount available for conversion in the lower GI.|
|As a pure supplement, MaxLiving Broccoli Blend is free of GMOs, gluten, shellfish, dairy, sugar, salt, eggs, peanuts, artificial sweeteners, and toxins so you can be confident no harmful substances are being carried into sensitive areas of the body. It is ideal for individuals who are sensitive to common allergens.||Many other broccoli supplements contain added fillers, preservatives, dyes, and sugars, like bovine Gelatin, FD&C colors, sucralose, or contain common allergens.|
|An optimized blend of broccoli seed extract and broccoli sprout concentrate, providing sulforaphane glucosinolate and the myrosinase enzyme for maximal conversion to sulforaphane.|
The health benefits of cruciferous vegetables is linked to the sulphur-rich compound, sulforaphane. In these vegetables, sulforaphane is found in its inactive form, sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS). In order for conversion to occur, it has to be hydrolyzed by myrosinase, an enzyme that is released when a cruciferous vegetable is broken down, such as my chewing or cutting.
This process occurs when cruciferous vegetables are eaten, however a large amount of cruciferous vegetables would need to be eaten in order to equal the amount of SGS contained in Broccoli Blend.
- One capsule of Broccoli Blend contains 32mg of SGS and 4 enzyme units of myrosinase enzyme. One would require consuming about ½ cup-¾ cup of raw, fresh broccoli per day to equal that same amount.
- One study stated that when vegetables are cooked, SGS content is lost by about 36%. Unfortunately, many people prefer to consume broccoli cooked, therefore it is difficult to consume adequate amounts of SGS solely from foods. Broccoli Blend can provide these nutrients consistently in an easy-to-use capsule.
- One study stated that glucosinolates found in cruciferous vegetables and MaxLiving Broccoli Blend have the ability to modulate carcinogen-metabolising enzyme systems by deactivating CYP 450, which may help to prevent certain cancers.
- Modern research suggests that due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant characteristics, sulforaphane helps to prevent against cardiovascular disease.
- Broccoli Sprout extract may help to improve glucose levels and type 2 diabetes. One study stated that supplementation with broccoli sprout extract significantly reduced blood glucose levels in patients with type 2 diabetes.
- Broccoli Sprout has also been found to induce detoxification and glutathione production.
- Sulforaphane has been found to induce both Phase II (detoxification) and AO (antioxidant) enzymes in the body.

Can I get sufficient amounts of sulforaphane from food?
Cruciferous vegetables do contain SGS that can be converted to sulforaphane, however, large quantities per day would need to be eaten in order to receive maximum benefits. A more practical approach to receive optimal amounts is supplementation with Broccoli Blend along with consuming cruciferous vegetables in daily diet.
