Standardized Broccoli

Brassica oleracea Floret Extract

Broccoli, Brassica oleracea, is an edible green plant whose large green color flowering head and stalk is eaten as a vegetable. China and India produced 73% of the world’s broccoli crops. It is eaten raw or cooked. By boiling, the characteristic sulfur-containing glucosinolate compound, sulforaphane can be easily diminished, but are better preserved by steaming, microwaving or stir-frying. With extraction at low temperature, the beneficial compounds can be concentrated and preserved in the form of powder that can be easily be taken as a food supplement. During processing or even chewing, the enzyme myrosinase can convert glucoraphanin present in broccoli into biologically active derivative sulforaphane.

Broccoli has a reputation as a superfood. It is low in calories but contains a wealth of nutrients and antioxidants (vitamin C, K, and A and dietary fiber) that support many aspects of human health. Broccoli has be found effective in certain cancerous conditions like prostate cancer, breast cancer and stomach cancer. The antioxidants present in broccoli can reduce inflammation, boost immune system and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Dosage 250g steamed broccoli per day
Groups
  1. Before
  2. After
Parameters analysed Survival rate, tumor growth, histopathologic and mechanism study
Function
LG extract has both hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects.

Visible benefits

  • 20 mg/kg of extract resulted in prolonged survival rates and increased inhibition of tumor growth and lymph node metastasis.
  • The extract elevated apoptotic cell death and increased expression of active caspase-3 and -9 of cancer cells.

Anti-cancer

In vivo study on effect of broccoli on prostate cancer
Subject Men having risk of prostate cancer (n=49)
Duration of the study 1 year
Dosage 400g broccoli per week
Groups
  1. Broccoli-rich diet
  2. Pea-rich diet
Parameters analysed Tumor size, histopathologic and mechanism study
Function
α-mangostin and the G. mangostana xanthones are potential anti-colon cancer candidate.

Visible benefits

  • The xanthone extract has cytotoxicity comparable to the drug and 2 times higher selectivity towards the colon cancer cells compared to normal cells.
  • The extract and α-mangostin inhibited 3 key steps in tumor metastasis including the cell migration, cell invasion and clonogenicity.

Anti-diabetes

In vivo study on effect of broccoli on diabetes
Subject Type 2 diabetic patients (n=81)
Duration of the study 4 weeks
Dosage 5, 10 g/day broccoli powder (BP)
Groups
  1. 10 g/d BP
  2. 5 g/d BP
  3. Placebo
Parameters analysed
  • Serum high-sensitive C reactive protein (hs-CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6) and tumor necrosis α (TNF-α) levels.
  • Cardiovascular risk factor parameters
Function
High-sulforaphane broccoli had favorable effects on inflammatory markers and lipid profiles in diabetes.

Visible benefits

  • BP treatment groups have a significant decrease in serum hs-CRP concentration (20.5% and 16.4%), decrease in serum IL-6 (3.6% and 0.7%), and TNF-α concentration (1.6% and 10.9%).
  • BP in dose of 10 g/d, significantly decreased serum triglycerides, OX-LDL/LDL ratio and atherogenic index of plasma and increased HDL-C concentration.

Anti-inflammation

In vivo study on effect of broccoli on inflammation
Subject Healthy overweight individuals (n=40)
Duration of the study 10 weeks
Dosage 30g/day broccoli
Groups
  1. With treatment
  2. Without treatment
Parameters analysed
  • BMI
  • Levels of TNF-α, IL-6, IL-1β and C-reactive protein
Function
Long term consumption of broccoli is beneficial to reduce inflammation in obese individuals.

Visible benefits

  • IL-6 levels significantly decreased (from 4.76 pg/mL to 2.11 pg/mL) during treatment and maintained at low grade (1.20-2.66 pg/mL) without treatment.
  • C-reactive protein significantly decreased.

Prevent breast cancer

In vitro and in vivo study on effect of broccoli on breast cancer
Subject Human breast cancer cells, xenograft tumor
Duration of the study 2 weeks

Function
Sulforaphane is potentially used for the chemoprevention of breast cancer stem cells.
Visible benefits
Sulforaphane decreased aldehyde dehydrogenase–positive cell population by 65% to 80% in human breast cancer cells and reduced the size and number of primary mammospheres by 8- to 125-fold and 45% to 75%, respectively.

Immunity

Parameters analysed
  • Immunity cell levels
  • Glutathione (GSH) levels
Function
Broccoli is capable to interfere with the age-related decline in immune function.
Visible benefits
Systemic SFN administration reversed the decline in cellular immune function in old mice through Nrf2-mediated antioxidant enzyme expression and GSH synthesis to the level of younger mice.
