Broccoli Supplements

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

Broccoli supplements I like:

1- Broccoli extract, SWR035

Swanson GreenFoods Formulas – Extra-Strength Broccoli w/Glucosinolates.
“Give your body the protective benefits of the natural phytonutrients in broccoli with our ExtraStrength Broccoli Extract. Broccoli contains natural antioxidant phytonutrients known as glucosinolates, which provide powerful free- radical protection for the cardiovascular system and for cells and tissues throughout the body. Our Extra-Strength Broccoli Extract gives you a highly concentrated source of antioxidant glucosinolates. It features a state-of-the-art mature broccoli extract called BroccoSinolate which is standardized to deliver a minimum of 4% total glucosinates for guaranteed antioxidant potency in every capsule. No other broccoli supplement on the market can match the glucosinolate content of this high-powered extract.”

2 – Broccoli Seeds, 4 oz (113 g) Now Foods
Description

* Potent Phytonutrient Source
* For Sprouting

Researchers have recently discovered a number of exciting phytonutrients with amazing health protecting properties. One phytonutrient derived from broccoli is Sulforaphane. Researchers have determined that broccoli sprouts contain a much greater Sulforaphane potential than broccoli florets. Enjoy these sprouts regularly.

These seeds are specially selected, tested and stored for high germination sprouting use. For best results, store the seeds in a dry (but not refrigerated) place.

About Selenium

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

Selenium and Methylselenocysteine

Selenium is an essential trace mineral that is essential for life. It is also a toxic metal when consumed in excess. Selenium is required to activate various key enzymes, including the antioxidant glutathione peroxidase, the metabolic enzyme thioredoxin reductase, and the thyroid-hormone-activating enzyme iodothyronine deiodinase. Food sources of selenium include brazil nuts, yeast, whole grains and seafood. Selenium content of food is dependent on selenium content in the soil and both are highly variable.
Selenium: The Anticancer Mineral

Epidemological studies recognized a connection between cancer incidence and low levels of selenium in the blood as early as 1969. Researchers noted that breast cancer rates were low in areas where selenium levels in the soil and food were high and high in areas where selenium levels were low. The same correlation was found between death rates and selenium levels. Similar correlations were subsequently found in animal studies.
Helps in treatment and prevention of dandruff. Necessary for healthy hair and nails. May also increase the elastic youthfulness of the skin and be helpful in removing age spots. When ingested in the natural algae form of selenomethionine, skin cancer incidence from ultraviolet light may also be reduced.
Selenium (Se) is an essential trace element that functions as a component of enzymes involved in antioxidant protection and thyroid hormone metabolism. In several intra- and extra-cellular glutathione peroxidases, iodothyronine 5н-deiodinases, and in thioredoxin reductase, selenium is located at the active centers as the selenoamino acid, selenocysteine (SeCYS). At least two other proteins of unknown function also contain SeCYS. Although SeCYS is an important dietary form, it is not directly incorporated into these specific selenium-proteins; instead, a co-translational process yields tRNA-bound SeCYS. In contrast, selenium as seleno-methionine is incorporated non-specifically into many proteins, as it competes with methionine in general protein synthesis. Therefore, tissues often contain both specific, as well as the nonspecific, selenium-containing proteins when both SeCYS and selenomethionine are consumed, as found in many foods.

IMPORTANCE: A major antioxidant nutrient, protects cell membranes and prevents free radical generation thereby decreasing the risk of cancer and disease of the heart and blood vessels. Medical surveys show that increased selenium intake decreases the risk of breast, colon, lung and prostate cancer. Selenium also preserves tissue elasticity; slows down the aging and hardening of tissues through oxidation; helps in the treatment and prevention of dandruff.

Deficiencies: Selenium deprivation reduces activities of the selenium-dependent enzymes. The signs in animals depend upon vitamin E status and appear only when both nutrients are limiting. They vary according to species. For example, selenium- and vitamin E-deficient animals show myopathies of skeletal (e.g., sheep, cow, horse), cardiac (pig) or smooth (dog, cow) muscle; hepatic necrosis (rat, pig); increased capillary permeability (chicken); or pancreatic acinar degeneration (chicken). Characteristic signs of selenium deficiency have not been described in humans, but very low selenium status is a factor in the etiologies of a juvenile cardiomyopathy (Keshan Disease) and a chondrodystrophy (Kashin-Beck Disease) that occur in selenium-deficient regions of China. May result in premature aging, heart disease, dandruff, loose skin.

Diet recommendations: The Recommended Dietary Allowances are in µg/day: 0-0.5 yrs, 10; 0.5-1.0 yrs, 15; 1-6 yrs, 20; 7-10 yrs, 30; males 11-14 yrs, 40; females 11-14 yrs, 45; males and females 15-18 yrs, 50; adult males, 70; adult females, 55; pregnancy, 65; and lactation, 75.

Sulforaphane glucosinolate is metabolized to sulforaphane (isothiocyanate), which is a highly reactive antioxidant. In extensive studies, sulforaphane has been demonstrated to be a potent inducer of phase 2 detoxifying enzymes and protector of DNA. Each capsule of BroccoMax contains 30 mg of sulforaphane glucosinolate, a concentration at least 20 times greater then that found in the full-grown broccoli plant.

  • 30 mg sulforaphane glucosinolate

Curcumin Supplements

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

My favorite curcumin supplement is

The Jarrow Curcumin 95% “Cucrcumine 95 250mg”

Description

* Turmeric 18:1 Concentrate
* Antioxidant Protection
* Dietary Supplement

Curcumin 95 is an 18:1 concentrate of the antioxidants found in the spice turmeric root. Curcumin 95 contains 95% curcuminoids (including curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin), which are antioxidants. Specifically, curcumin and it derivatives protect DNA against oxidative damage induced by reactive oxygen species.

Please note, some people who took the curcumin/bioperine combination reported an increased inflammation in the scalp.  Every time you take a new supplement listen to your body, sense the scalp and how your body feels that day.

curcumin has anti cancer properties. I have been taking 2 gms (4 capsules) per day since shortly after diagnosis with stage 4 breast cancer a year ago. Went into remission within 3 months, all tumors have disappeared, am now in remission with no evidence of disease for 8 months.

No more sweat smell! November 07, 2008
From Tennessee
In addition to being a wonderful anti-oxidant, after using this for a couple of weeks in the summer, I found that my sweat did not smell. One thing though, if your blood sugar tends to run low, it takes about a month for your body to get used to it. Keep honey around, because your blood sugar can drop very quickly.

Great for bone spurs February 02, 2009
From North Carolina
Discovered online that curcumin is a great anti-inflammatory. Occasionally I have sharp pain in my back that is caused by bone spurs. I’ll take a capsule every few hours and by the next day the pain is almost all gone. once the pain is gone I only take 1 a day. To me this is incredible because I could have pain that lasted for 2 weeks. Love curcumin.
