Biochem/physiol Actions

Selective inducer of phase II detoxification enzymes with anticarcinogenic properties. Organosulfur compound found in cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli.
Sulforaphane is an anti-cancer, anti-microbial and anti-diabetic compound found in cruciferous vegetables. It induces the production of detoxifying enzymes such as quinone reductase and glutathione S-transferase that cause xenobiotic transformation. Sulforaphane also increases the transcription of tumor suppressor proteins and inhibits histone deacetylases. It modulates inflammatory responses by suppressing the LPS-mediated expression of iNOS, COX-2, IL-1β and TNF-α.
