Cruciferous


Cruciferous vegetables contain sulforaphane, indole-carbinol and D-limonene which support enzyme activity linked to normal cell growth and renewal, especially of breast and prostate tissues.*

A large volume of research points to the benefits for healthy aging associated with regular consumption of cruciferous vegetables. Many national health organizations recommend one serving of cruciferous vegetables daily. On average, Americans currently eat only about one serving a week.

Food Sources:
  • broccoli
  • radishes
  • kale
  • black mustard
  • brown mustard
  • watercress

When supplementing, look for products with:
  • whole food ingredients
  • no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or sweeteners
  • sources naturally occurring in the human food chain
