Great things really do come in small packages...
Thorne Research is proud to present CRUCERA-SGS!
Thorne Research is proud to present CRUCERA-SGS, an advanced antioxidant formula that harnesses the chemoprotective properties of sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) – a natural substance from the seeds and sprouts of select broccoli varietals – for safe and effective up-regulation of the body's natural phase II detoxification enzymes.* CRUCERA-SGS is an indirect antioxidant that provides long-lasting cell protection from free radical damage for days after being consumed.* One capsule of CRUCERA-SGS contains the same amount of SGS found in 2 lbs of broccoli (a 20x concentration) – proof once more that great things really do come in small packages.CRUCERA-SGS provides:
- Targeted chemoprotection*
- Support of healthy gastrointestinal function*
- Support for healthy vision and eyes*
- Support for a healthy cardiovascular system*
- Support for healthy joints*
CRUCERA-SGS is sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS)
Sulforaphane glucosinolate is the precursor of sulforaphane, a potent chemoprotective compound thought to be the key factor in many of the health benefits attributed to cruciferous vegetables.* When CRUCERA-SGS is ingested and begins breaking down in the gut, it releases sulforaphane, thereby activating the body's natural detoxification and antioxidant enzymes and protecting cells from free radical damage.*
CRUCERA-SGS is an indirect antioxidant*
An indirect antioxidant is a substance that neutralizes oxidative processes through enzymatic induction. For instance, typical antioxidants, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, or beta carotene, work "directly" to neutralize free radicals and are usually only effective for approximately three hours after ingestion. By contrast, because CRUCERA-SGS induces the activity of phase II detoxification enzymes, it "indirectly" triggers broad-spectrum antioxidant activity that can last for several days – long after CRUCERA-SGS has been consumed.*
CRUCERA-SGS is well-researched
The health benefits of broccoli, SGS, and sulforaphane have been actively studied over the past two decades. This research has yielded more than 500 journal publications – thanks in large part to the work of research pioneers, Paul Talalay, M.D. and Jed Fahey, Sc.D., M.S., at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, who first identified the chemoprotective properties of SGS in 1992.*
CRUCERA-SGS is convenient for your patients
Sulforaphane glucosinolate content in broccoli can vary from crop to crop – a concern for any patient who requires consistent chemoprotection. Each capsule of CRUCERA-SGS contains 50 mg of sulforaphane glucosinolate, the only SGS formula available at this strength. This is equivalent to eating two pounds of broccoli (a 20x concentration) – ensuring your patients consistent and effective cellular protection in a safe and simple formula.*
