Broccoli Extract contains a compound known as sulforaphane, which acts as a skin protectant, especially against UV rays. It differs from conventional sunscreens in that it does not absorb UV rays. Instead, its protective qualities lie in its ability to up-regulate the cells' own defenses against UV damage. This defense system includes a network of cell protective proteins that help protect against the damage caused by a wide range of toxins and carcinogens. This superfood also contains a wide range of bio-available nutrients and vitamins making it a nutritional powerhouse with a wide range of benefits.
