The power of broccoli, in a capsule
Date:4/18/2012

Santa Rosa, Calif. (April 18, 2012) -- Broccoli, cabbage, leafy greens, caulifloweryour mother insisted they were good for you while you defiantly pushed them around your plate. Perhaps you didn't believe they were all that good for you. If they're so great, why don't they taste better?

Turns out your mother was right. These cruciferous vegetables have a profound influence on the health of your body's cells. In fact, a recent study by Vanderbilt University's Ingram Center showed that a diet full of cruciferous vegetables protects and improves breast cellular health.

Cells Love Broccoli

We already knew quite a bit about how cabbage and cauliflower contribute to good health, and this study adds another layer of evidence. But what is it about cruciferous vegetables that make our cells so happy? In a word, it's indoles.

Indoles are organic compounds that have a positive impact on cellular health. One in particular, diindolylmethane (DIM), has been shown to support the immune system and help keep hormones in balance, particularly estrogen. In the body, estrogen gets broken down into a variety of metabolites, some of which promote healthy cells. Unfortunately, others can cause problems. DIM has been shown to help the body produce beneficial estrogen metabolites with anti-oxidative effects. Of course, certain estrogen metabolites, which have been associated with obesity, chemical exposure and other causes, have been shown to derail cellular health. The beauty of DIM is that it has been proven to increase the good kind of hormone metabolites and decrease the kind that can challenge health.

Breast, prostate and other areas of hormone-related cellular health depend on this delicate balance. DIM, as well as broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, offer critical support in maintaining healthy levels of hormones, while providing additional benefits for cellular health and protection.

The body is always working to maintain hormonal balance, but it needs help. Environmental factors, regular physical activity and good diet play key roles in helping the body keep hormones at ideal levels. This brings us back to those healthy cruciferous vegetables. They're so good for us, we want to love them.

Broccoli for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner?

If broccoli tasted like chocolate, we probably wouldn't even be having this conversation. Everyone would be eating it all day long. But unfortunately for many people, broccoli tastes like broccoli. In addition, we would have to eat very large quantities to gain the full benefits of DIM.

Powerful Natural Solutions

Fortunately, there are easy ways to get the benefits of DIM without having to steam up mounds of cruciferous vegetablesBreastDefend and ProstaCaid, two scientifically-researched natural supplements for breast health and prostate health.* Because the DIM in these targeted formulas is purified, the body can absorb it easily.* As a result, you can gain the powerful benefits without having to overwhelm your taste buds.

In addition to concentrated DIM, BreastDefend contains four scientifically proven, protective botanical extracts:

  • Quercetin
  • BCM 95, a highly bio-available form of curcumin (turmeric rhizome extract)
  • Astragalus root extract
  • Proprietary Chinese Skullcap extract

ProstaCaid also contains DIM, along with a concentrated broccoli extract and over 27 other targeted natural ingredients, including:

  • Nettle extract
  • Saw Palmetto berry
  • Pomegranate
  • Pumpkin seed extract

These, and other botanicals and nutrients in ProstaCaid, work synergistically to maintain hormone balance in men, while protecting cellular health and immunity.*

Completing both formulas are three herbal-enhanced mushrooms that have been extensively researched for their support in breast and prostate health: Coriolus, Reishi, and Phellinus linteus.* These mushrooms are grown on a proprietary blend of immune-enhancing herbs and brown rice, which gives an extra boost to their powerful health-promoting properties.*

We all want to do everything we can to maintain our health and choosing the right nutritional supplements is an important part of that process. BreastDefend for breast health and ProstaCaid for prostate health, are two scientifically-proven formulas that protect cellular health, enhance the immune system and maintain the hormonal balance that is so critical to keeping us healthy over time.* The power of broccoli and more in a capsule.
