Dr Wolz Broccoli Extract + Active Enzyme 60 Caps
Broccoli extract with quercetin and a high content of glucoraphanin and the enzyme myrosinase
Brokkoliextrakt + Aktiv-Enzym
What makes our Brokkoliextrakt + Aktiv-Enzym special in comparison to other products? It contains the phytochemicals quercetin and glucoraphanin. Therefore, it provides the valuable ingredient sulforaphane in a very high bioavailability. This can be explained because of the enzyme myrosinase, that convertes glucoraphanin into glucose and sulforaphane. The result: It allows the body to absorb the provided sulforaphane directly – the ingredients are made available naturally.
Why is broccoli considered to be so healthy?
Brocolli is a very healthy food. Meanwhile, even the media is reporting on this. This cabbage belongs to the family of the cruciferous plants. In addition to broccoli this also includes e.g. cauliflower, red cabbage, white cabbage kohlrabi, cress, radishes and horseradish. It is characterized by its phytochemicals – the yellow plant pigment quercetin and glucoraphanin. After the broccoli has been eaten the glucoraphanin is converted into sulforaphane, with the help of the enzyme myrosinase. Myrosinase is also contained in broccoli. This causes the typical cabbage smell and taste. The conversion process continues in the intestine with the help of intestinal bacteria. Glucoraphanin can be found in a very high concentration in the broccoli seeds of the variety Brassica oleracea.
Sulforaphane can not be absorbed to a great extend only through the consumption of broccoli
Even those who eat plenty of broccoli will be disappointed on the basis of fact that broccoli nowadays, does not provide the body with to many nutrients. This is based on the newer cultures of broccoli that do not contain a lot of glucoraphin. Often, the valuable ingredients in broccoli are destroyed by storage, by deep freezing and by cooking. The reason for that the enzyme myrosinase, which is very sensitive. It converts glucoraphanin into the active ingredient sulforaphane. It can already be destroyed by cooking broccoli at 40 degrees celsius. For this reason, broccoli would have to be eaten raw in order to absorb a large amount of the valuable ingredients. Quercetin is also reduced by storage and in production processes. Therefore, cooking also destroys most of the quercetin.
Brokkoliextrakt + Aktiv Enzym helps to make the available components of the body usable
Those who want to use the benefits of the ingredients in broccoli, have to use a supplement that also contains the enzyme myrosinase. Brokkoliextrakt + Aktiv-Enzym contains both substances extracted from broccoli seeds by means of a patented, gentle production process. The effective concentrate of Dr. Wolz is producted in a process, in which temperatures are always below 40 degrees celsius. With the help of the enzyme myrosinase the valuable phytochemical glucoraphanin can be converted into the active substance sulforaphene. After that it can be used naturally by our body.
Glucoraphanin is converted into sulforaphane by the enzyme myrosinase, which can be found in broccoli, as well as in our intestinal bacteria. The question is now: Why can we not just extract sulforaphane and offer it in capsules? Some providers actually do that and sell it dried. The problem is that, sulforaphane extract itself is not very stable. As shown in our Brokkoliextrakt + Aktiv-Enzym it is better to combine glucoraphanin with the enzyme myrosinase in order to improve the effects of sulfrophane. Therefore, glucophanin is getting converted into glucose and sulforaphane by the intestinal bacteria in the small intestine. This allows the body to absorb it directly. Glucoraphanin and myrosinase are acid-sensitive and therefore, have to be presented in a gastric acid resistant capsule.
The capsules contain broccoli seed extract, the enzyme myrosinase and quercetin. Brokkoliextrakt + Aktiv-Enzym is vegan. The capsule shell is made of plant-based cellulose.
The recommended daily amount is a maximum of one capsule. Take it unchewed with a beverage of your choice. It should not be taken with highly acidic foods/ drinks (e.g. orange juice, cherries) or vitamin C preparations.
A varied, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle are important for health.
