I have found this on but I'm not sure about how effective this is

What is it?

BroccoMax (17.5 mg) is nothing more than Sulforaphane Glucosinolate (SGS).

Sulforaphane isΒ a sulfur-rich compound found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, bok choy, and cabbage.

In these foods, it's in the inactive form glucoraphanin that belongs to the glucosinolate family of plant compounds.

Sulforaphane is activated when glucoraphanin comes into contact with myrosinase, a family of enzymes that play a role in the defense response of plants.

Myrosinase enzymes are only released and activated when a plant is damaged. Therefore, cruciferous vegetables must be cut, chopped, or chewed to release myrosinase and activate sulforaphane (1).

Raw vegetablesΒ have the highest levels of sulforaphane. One study found that raw broccoli had ten times more sulforaphane than cooked broccoli (2).

Steaming vegetables for one to three minutes may be the best way to optimize sulforaphane levels when cooking (3).

It’s best to cook the vegetables below 284˚F (140˚C), as exceeding this temperature results in a loss of glucosinolates like glucoraphanin (4).
