Scientists have identified specific extracts from cruciferous vegetables — such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprouts — that help maintain healthy hormone levels.111-121 Maintaining optimal hormone balance is essential to any anti-aging strategy. Triple Action Cruciferous Vegetable Extract combines some of these botanical extracts into the most comprehensive food-based, plant compilation for cell protection yet.
I3C (Indole-3-carbinol) and DIM (Di-indolyl-methane) favorably modulate estrogen metabolism and induce liver detoxification enzymes to help neutralize potentially harmful estrogen metabolites and xenoestrogens (estrogen-like environmental chemicals).122-126
Extracts of broccoli, watercress, and rosemary provide glucosinolates, isothiocyanates, carnosic acid, and carnosol — bioactive compounds that have a multitude of favorable effects on estrogen metabolism and cell division.127-130 Apigenin, a powerful plant flavonoid, is also added to the formula to boost cell protection,131 while cabbage extract, a natural source of benzyl isothiocyanate (BITC), is included to maintain cell health.118,132
Life Extension has combined its cruciferous vegetable complex with trans-resveratrol based on indications from published scientific literature that resveratrol may be the most effective compound for maintaining optimal health and promoting longevity.144 The whole grape extract contains a spectrum of polyphenols naturally found in red wine, such as proanthocyanidins, anthocyanins, and flavonoids.
