We all know that broccoli is jam packed with antioxidants but Swanson GreenFoods Extra Strength Broccoli with Glucosinolates is such a powerful source of antioxidant delivery that it actually exceeds every other type of glucosinolate supplement available on the market today. Just like mum used to say - eat your greens, they just might save you one day!
Broccoli is a strange vegetable; loved by adults, loathed by children the world over. Like it or hate it, we we were all told that we had to eat it as kids or forfeit our ice cream afterwards. But what makes broccoli (and Swanson GreenFoods Extra Strength Broccoli with Glucosinolates) so good for us?
Broccoli is a supercharged cruciferous vegetable, which means that - like cabbage - it is actually part of the mustard family. Cruciferous vegetables are usually identifiable by their dark green colour and slightly bitter flavour - perhaps explaining why they aren't so popular with younger palates.
Beneath that bitter flavour is a host of hidden nutritive gems. High levels of fibre and vitamin A are complemented by Sulforaphane Glucosinolates - powerful antioxidants. Or in the case of Swanson GreenFoods Extra Strength Broccoli with Glucosinolates - BroccoSinolate.
BroccoSinolate is an extra mature broccoli extract which actually delivers a minimum of 4% of total glucosinolates; the highest potency broccoli supplement available on the market today.
