Update: Broccoli Breakthrough: Sulforaphane Glucosinolate Supplement BroccoPLEX™

Supplementing a Healthy Diet Rich in Sulforaphane Glucosinolate May Help Preserve the Body's Natural Defenses

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 15, 2008) - Broccoli has received considerable attention lately as it's becoming increasingly acknowledged in the medical and wellness industries as one of Mother Nature's most antioxidant rich vegetables. Even more compelling is what is contained in the seeds of broccoli: Sulforaphane Glucosinolate (SGS™). SGS™ is a natural compound derived from broccoli and other cruciferous vegetation that sustain the body's antioxidant functions. A phase 1 market research study was conducted by Texas-based Zpryme Research & Consulting investigating the invaluable applications of Sulforaphane Glucosinolate and the companies that are clearly on the cusp of exposing its benefits.

Since the unearthing of SGS™ more than 300 studies have been spearheaded from universities globally on the sanguine health implications of Sulforaphane Glucosinolates. A study that unquestionably propelled the SGS™ innovational charge was carried out by scientists at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine; their findings determined that broccoli sprouts have 20 to 50 times more SGS™ than that of full-grown broccoli.

A subsequent study conducted by both the Japan Institute for the Control of Aging and The Tokyo University of Agriculture uncovered that those who consumed at least 3 1/2 ounces of broccoli sprouts on a daily basis for just one week noticeably reduced their cholesterol level and improved their HDL levels. Moreover, individuals that included broccoli sprouts in their diet also decreased the amount of oxidative stress; for example oxidative stress plays a role in the cause of wrinkles and sagging skin.

The company leading the effort to embrace the latest SGS™ findings, while realizing the substantial benefits of SGS™ in a digestible form, is New York-based Oz Wellness Company. Oz Wellness Company is deservedly well ahead of the curve when it comes to the latest in progressive nutrition, anti-aging, life extension, and soon to be released SGS™ infused personal wellness product line, BroccoPLEX™. According to Dr. Oz Garcia, Ph.D., Executive Chairman of Oz Wellness Company, "Our SGS™ products comprise one of most chemoprotective agents any person can take." It's important to note that Oz Wellness Company's BroccoPLEX™ is distinctively patented and licensed by Johns Hopkins University. Each easily digestible capsule of BroccoPLEX™ will contain 30mg of healthy structure and function supporting concentrations of SGS™; one dosage is equivalent to absorbing the SGS™ nutritional value from 2.5 pounds of broccoli. BroccoPLEX™ will be offered in quantities of 30 capsules.
