Jarrow Formulas BroccoMax is a dietary supplement that includes sulphane glucosinolate (SGS) extracted from broccoli seeds during technologically advanced, patent-protected process.
The production technology preserves naturally occurring in broccoli enzyme mirosynase and that allows the formation of active sulforaphane in the body. The manufacturer declares that one capsule contains 30 mg SGS and guarantees creating as much as 8 mg of biologically active sulforaphane.
This supplement presents a wide spectrum of health-promoting properties. It improves liver functions and supports the body detoxifying processes. It also promotes cell replication and protects DNA against mutation that may lead to pathological carcinogenesis.
Sulforaphane is a biologically active chemical compound from the isothiocyanate group formed as a result of the hydrolysis of glucoraphanin - a substance belonging to glucosinolates.
Mirosynase is the enzyme that catalyses this reaction. The highest concentration of glucoraphanin occurs in cruciferous vegetables, especially in broccoli sprouts.
Consumption of cruciferous vegetables is very beneficial for health, however sulforaphane itself is rather difficult to obtain. Processing vegetables leads to mirosynase degeneration, and this reduces significantly the efficiency of glucosinolates to isothiocyanates conversion.
The manufacturer of this supplement responded to these problems. This product contains highly concentrated extract of freshly sprouted broccoli characterised by a very high concentration of glucoraphanin. What is more, full activity of the enzyme mirosynase has been assured allowing the glucoraphanin to sulforaphane conversion. That is how a supplement with exceptional efficiency and extremely high potency was created.
Liver protection and detoxification support
Liver is the organ that benefits most from the health-promoting properties of sulforaphane. Sulforaphane protects liver’s cells from the toxicity of many potentially harmful compounds including pharmaceuticals, alcohol and other harmful substances contained in the processed food. In addition, sulforaphane facilitates the production of protective glutathione.
Sulforaphane relieves the liver by active support of the detoxification process. The studies proved that sulphane presents the ability to modulate the expression of enzymes of detoxification Phase I and II. These enzymes are responsible for transforming toxic substances into less harmful and their effective removal from the body. Researchers confirm that sulforaphane is the strongest inducer of the enzymes of the Phase II detoxification.
Numerous clinical studies confirmed the anti-carcinogenic properties of sulforaphane. Sulforaphane uses several mechanisms and affects practically all stages of the of tumorigenesis. process. It inhibits the expression of Phase I detoxification enzymes that can activate cancer developing processes, and at the same time it induces Phase II enzymes that are responsible for the elimination of DNA damaging compounds from the body. By doing this, the amount of mutagenic agents is reduced.
Sulforaphane can also interfere in the cancer developing process and change its course. It affects the proliferation of cancer cells, blocks the cell cycle, induces apoptosis of pathological cells and prevents the expansion of those that have been genetically modified.
Apart from its autonomous action, sulforaphane also increases the effectiveness of drugs that are commonly used in oncological patients. Studies show that it strengthens the efficacy of pharmaceuticals used in the pancreatic and prostate cancer treatment, and at the same time it limits their toxicity to properly constructed cells.
Sulforaphane has a strong anti-inflammatory effect. It has been proven that there is a close correlation between chronic inflammation and many disease entities. That is why regulating the body's inflammatory response is a very important element of health promotion.
This mechanism of anti-inflammatory activity results from strong impact of sulforaphane on the NF-kB transcription factor. It decreases the iNOS and COX-2 activity and reduces TNF-α cytokine production. Sulforaphane affects macrophages causing them to release smaller amount of HMGB1 protein responsible for increasing the intensity of the inflammatory process.
Sulforaphane possess strong antibacterial activity, especially in relation to Helicobacter pylori. This bacterium causes stomach ulcers and its activity is related to gastric cancer. The exact mechanism of this activity remains unclear, however, both in vitro and in vivo studies have clearly shown that after just five days of taking sulforaphane, 8 out of 11 Helicobacter pylori strains have been eliminated from the body.
Jarrow Formulas BroccoMax is a dietary supplement with a range of applications. It allows to take full advantage of the amazing pro-health potential of sulforaphane. Perfect for anti-cancer prophylaxis. It is also recommended for people who have frequent contact with toxins (those who live in big cities, smokers, people abusing medicines or people consuming large amounts of processed food).
This supplement provides concentrated broccoli sprout extract and maintains the enzyme activity of mirosynase. Each capsule contains about 8 mg of biologically active sulforaphane. Both sulforaphane and its metabolites are easily removed from the body with urine so it is practically impossible to overdose.
In order to maintain the adequate concentration of sulforaphane in the body, take one capsule around each meal (with a half-hour interval between the meal and a supplement dose). Prophylactically take 1 capsule daily.

What is Brassica oleracea?
Brassica oleracea is a plant species of the crucifer family, which includes broccoli, cauliflower, kale, cabbage, Brussels sprouts and other vegetables.
Crucifers are known for their great health-promoting potential. The components beneficial for the human organisms are, for example, sulphoraphane, indole-3-carbinol (I3C), diindolylmethane (DIM), and a large amount of vitamins and minerals. Its beneficial effects can be noticed especially in the case of too high oestrogen levels, and even in the process of carcinogenesis induced by them. It results from its potential to reduce aromatase production, which is possible thanks to the fact that sulphoraphane can inhibit aryl hydrocarbon receptors (AHR), while diindolylmethane can modulate oestrogen metabolic pathways. Crucifers can be beneficial for the health of the entire organism thanks to its ability to reduce reactive oxygen species, which decreases the damage induced by them, as well as to reduce inflammations, which can lead to serious complications when chronic.
Proprietary blend - is a complex of bioactive ingredients in the proportions, which are covered by the manufacturer's patent. According to the law in force in Poland, the components of the blend are known, and , by the place on the packaging, you can identify which components are in bigger amount (the components are listed in the decreasing order of amounts).
Proprietary blends are used in many food supplements, such as creatine stacks, no-boosters, fat burners and pro-testosterone supplements, improving libido.
Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess resulting from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)
