Study Round Up: Sulforaphane + Immunity

Study Round Up: Sulforaphane + Immunity

In our fast-paced and ever-changing world, maintaining a robust immune system has become more crucial than ever. The immune system acts as a vigilant guardian, defending our bodies against harmful invaders and keeping us healthy. While various factors influence its efficiency, one promising compound that has gained considerable attention for its ability to stimulate our body's defence mechanisms is Sulforaphane.

Gladly, Sulforaphane is the active compound in Green+. By including FourHealth Green+ in your daily routine, you can harness the potential of Sulforaphane and optimise your immune system's functioning in the face of today's challenges.

Current potential health benefits of sulforaphane

EXCLI J. 2016; 15: 571–577.

Sulforaphane (SFN), the potent isothiocyanate compound derived from the breakdown of glucoraphanin by the enzyme myrosinase, has gained considerable attention in scientific research. SFN is one of the most frequently studied plant-derived isothiocyanate organosulfur compounds and has been reported to exhibit a wide range of biological effects.

In this study, an extensive review was conducted on the latest research concerning the biological and pharmacological activities of SFN.

Sulforaphane: Its “Coming of Age” as a Clinically Relevant Nutraceutical in the Prevention and Treatment of Chronic Disease

Oxid Med Cell Longev. 2019; 2019: 2716870.

Although the relationship between oxidative stress and chronic disease continues to be affirmed, direct-acting antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, and E, beta-carotene, and others have not yielded the expected preventive or therapeutic responses, even though several large meta-analyses have sought to evaluate the potential benefit of such supplements. Because polyphenols exhibit poor bioavailability, few of their impressive in vitro findings have been replicated in vivo. Sulforaphane emerges as a phytochemical with comparatively high bioavailability. A number of clinical trials have demonstrated its ability to produce favourable outcomes in conditions for which there are few satisfactory pharmaceutical solutions, foreshadowing the potential for SFN as a clinically relevant nutraceutical.
