Triple Action Cruciferous Vegetable Extract combines some of these botanical extracts into the most comprehensive food-based, plant compilation for cell protection yet.
I3C (Indole-3-carbinol) and DIM (Di-indolyl-methane) favourably regulate oestrogen metabolism and induce liver detoxification enzymes. This is done to help with the neutralisation of potentially harmful oestrogen metabolites and xenoestrogens (oestrogen-like environmental chemicals).[5-7]
Extracts of broccoli, watercress and rosemary provide glucosinolates, isothiocyanates, carnosic acid and carnosol. They are bioactive compounds that have many favourable effects on oestrogen metabolism and cell division.[1-2] Apigenin, a powerful plant flavonoid, is also added to the formula to boost cell protection, while cabbage extract, a natural source of benzyl isothiocyanate (BITC), is included to maintain cell health.[3-4]
Life Extension has combined its cruciferous vegetable complex with trans-resveratrol. That was based on published scientific literature, according to which, resveratrol may be the most effective compound for optimal health and longevity. The whole grape extract contains a spectrum of polyphenols naturally found in red wine (proanthocyanidins, anthocyanins) and flavonoids.
