Sulforaphane promotes detoxification
Sulforaphane increases the antioxidant capacity of cells by two main mechanisms. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4570035/
- Sulforaphane increases glutathione. (1)
- And it induces phase 2 detoxification enzymes. In fact, sulforaphane is the most potent chemical to induce phase 2 enzymes that has been identified. It acts by activating Nrf2 and ARE, and increasing glutathione S-transferases activity. (2, 3, 4, 5, 6).
Sulforaphane supports a healthy immune system
Sulforaphane improves clearance of bacteria by macrophages and increases the activity of natural killer cells in mice (7).
Sulforaphane boosted the Th1 immunity in studies performed on aging mice. It was also found to delay the reduction of cell-mediated immunity that occurs with age (8).
Sulforaphane reduces inflammation
Sulforaphane inactivates nuclear factor kappa-B (NF-κB), a key inducer of inflammation (9).
Sulforaphane also activates Nrf2, which lowers inflammation, and decreases proinflammatory mediators in mice (10, 11).
Sulforaphane protects the brain and restores cognitive function
Sulforaphane supports the longevity of existing neurons and encourages the formation of new neurons and synapses (12).
SFN reduces brain inflammation in various animal models of pathogen-induced neuroinflammation and neurodegenerative disease (13, 14, 15, 16).
