In last weeks April 2nd Forward Thinking we explained how our Cruciferous Sprouts Complex provides sulforaphanes and how sulforaphanes help protect the body from developing cancer.
We mentioned two trials, both demonstrating the anti-cancer power of sulphaphanes. Each of these trials highlighted sulphoraphanes ability to crucially influence different transcription factors in ways that prevent cancer—enhancing one and inhibiting another. Let’s look deeper.
In the first trial sulphoraphanes inhibited Hypoxic-inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1a). HIF-1a is one of the most compelling anticancer targets for it is essential for angiogenesis and is associated with tumor progression. Therefore, its inhibition is critical.
In the second trial sulphoraphane activated the expression of FOXO Transcription factor. Expression of active forms of FOXO in tumor cells prevents tumor growth in vivo.
In Wednesday’s newsletter we will look at very robust epidemiological studies relative to cruciferous vegetables support in cancer prevention. Their results are very confirmative.
Cruciferous Sprouts Complex contains: broccoli sprouts, Daikon Radish Sprouts, Red Radish Sprouts, Water Cress Sprouts, Kale Sprouts, Mustard Sprouts, and Cabbage Sprouts yielding 10,000ppm glucosinolates.
Glucosinolates are the precursors to isothiocyanates. Sulforaphane is a class of isothiocyanates.
Take two capsules daily away from food.
The Last Quiz Answer:
A mother eagle caring for her babies as they hatch.
Once you’ve click on the above, click to the right on the live eagle cam. When we think of eagles we think of them as belonging to North America. But in reality there are only two species, the bald eagle and the goldern eagle that reside in the US and Canda. More than sixty species of eagles are from Eurasia and Africa.
There is a lot of label claims when is comes to eggs: Certified Organic … Raised Without Antibiotics … Omega-3 Enriched … Free-Range/Free-Roaming … Etc. Interesting, in 2007 a Mother Earth News study found that hens that got to hunt, peck and graze outdoors on their natural diets had 1/3 less cholesterol, 1/4 less saturated fat, 2/3 more vitamin A, 2 times more Omega-3 Fatty Acids, 3 times more vitamin E and 7 times more Beta Carotene. The very essence of Therapeutic Foods. These were under the label of: Pature-Raise/Pastured. See the link above.
