Jarrow Formulas BroccoMax has been demonstrated in vitro to yield approximately 8 mg of sulforaphane per DR capsule containing 30 mg of SGS. BroccoMax uses a patented process that preserves myrosinase, the enzyme in broccoli that metabolizes SGS (Sulforaphane Glucosinolate, a.k.a. glucoraphanin) in the small intestine into sulforaphane.
1 to 3 capsules per day 30 minutes before or after a meal
I don't write reviews often, but felt obligated after reading a lot of faulty misguided and uneducated one star reviews. One review states it only has 30mcg compared to mercolas 350mcg. Actually this contains 30mg which is 30,000 mcg which is exponentially more potent than mercolas. Another review states it's only glucosinolate and not sulforaphane.Sulforaphane is not stable and doesn't actually exist naturally in appreciable quantities in nature. Broccoli contains Glucosinolate and myrosinase, and when eaten/ chewed, the two mix in the gut and myrosinase converts glucosinolate into sulforaphane. This product contains both enzymes (one review claims it doesn't contain myrosinase). So taking this product is mimicking what happens in nature. Glucosinolate content is what you need to look at as long as some myrosinase is present. This has large quantities (30mg) and is higher than any other supplement I've seen on the market. Many other supplements lack myrosinase so that's something you'll want to pay attention to since glucosinolate won't convert to sulforaphane without it.I dropped it to four stars because there are two things to be aware of: it now contains rice maltodextrin. I'm not a fan that they put carbs into this pill. The other is that it may give you some mild gut distress. I think that's why it says to eat 30 min after consuming. But the upside of taking this supplement outweighs the downside in my opinion.
Itâ€™s a great natural product. It seems to work.
