WHY CRUCIFEROUS VEGETABLES?
- Research has shown a link between a high consumption of cruciferous vegetables and a low risk for encountering certain destructive agents which pose aggressive threats to overall well-being.
- Cruciferous vegetables contain unique phytonutrients (plant nutrients) that are not found in any other foods but that are essential for optimal well-being.
- Cruciferous vegetables contain substances shown in research studies to help strengthen the body’s defences.
- Cancer Institutes and Health Organisations all recommend consuming one serving of cruciferous vegetables each day.
THE BEST OFFENCE IS A GOOD DEFENCE
What’s in cruciferous vegetables that helps protect your body? Besides having lots of vitamins, minerals and fibres, cruciferous vegetables are chock-full of other vital plant nutrients called phytonutrients. Some of the first beneficial phytonutrients to be identified by scientists were the carotenoids and flavonoids, families of colourful pigments from fruits and vegetables that help protect the lipid- and water-soluble portions of cells, respectively. The phytonutrients in cruciferous vegetables, however, help protect your cells in different ways. Research has shown that the special protection afforded by cruciferous phytonutrients can lessen our risk of encountering some of the major threats to our well-being.
CRUCIFEROUS PLUS'S RISK-REDUCTION TEAM
We wanted to create the most complete, technologically advanced product on the market to harness the beneficial properties of cruciferous vegetables. To achieve this goal we first examined almost two decades of research correlating crucifers with reduced risks of threats from destructive agents and identified key protector nutrients. Then, in formulating our exclusive Cruciferous Plus blend, we made use of naturally occurring foods as sources of these vital phytonutrients, derived from a wide range of cruciferous vegetables to ensure broad-spectrum supplementation:
- black mustard
- brown mustard
These cruciferous vegetables contain two main phytonutrients that science has shown to be particularly impactful on major risks to our well-being.
- Isothiocyanates. One potent member of this family of protector nutrients is sulforaphane, a component of broccoli and other crucifers.
- Indole carbinols.
Cruciferous Plus also contains antioxidants from oranges, liquorice root and soybeans that help protect your cells in different ways:
- Terpenes. D-Limonene, a terpene (plant oil) in citrus fruits
- Chalcones. A sweet substance in liquorice root
- Isoflavones. Such as genistein in soybeans.
THE CRUCIFEROUS VEGETABLE GAP
Cancer Institutes and Health Organizations worldwide recommend consuming at least five servings of fruit and vegetables per day, including one from the cruciferous vegetables as a means of positively keeping cells healthy.
However, cruciferous vegetables do not appear to be particularly popular and people worldwide fall profoundly short of meeting these dietary recommendations. In addition people are not getting enough of the other beneficial phytonutrients. Soy products are not universally consumed nor can liquorice root be considered a dietary staple. D-Limonene is removed from oranges and lemons during juice production to curb rancidity problems.
The result? We are not getting the full protection Mother Nature can afford.
CRUCIFEROUS PLUS BRIDGES THE GAP
While eating a serving of Brussels sprouts, cabbage or broccoli each day is easier said than done, getting the protective phytonutrients you need is now easier than ever. In a convenient tablet, NeoLife’s Cruciferous Plus provides the nutrient density and diversity of the phytonutrients found in one optimal serving of a combination of cruciferous vegetables. Based in nature and backed by science, Cruciferous Plus offers an excellent means of bridging dietary gaps and supplying unique phytonutrients shown to help protect against aggressive threats to overall well-being.
