Antioxidants Protect Your Cells
from Oxidation !!!
GNLD's Cruciferous Plus® contains black mustard and other factors to help with nutritional support. Cruciferous Plus® helps regulate bowel action and stop excessive "wind".
Cruciferous vegetables - the family that includes broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and collard greens - contain special antioxidant phytonutrients that are not found in any other foods and may lower the risk of disease. The American Cancer Society recommends eating one serving of antioxidant cruciferous vegetables every day, but most of us only eat one serving a week. Each Cruciferous Plus® tablet provides the phytonutrient value of an optimal serving of a wide variety of antioxidant cruciferous vegetables.
Benefits of Cruciferous Plus®:
- Sulforaphane and indole-carbinol (from broccoli and other crucifer extracts) and D-limonene (from oranges) support enzyme activity linked to normal cell growth and renewal, especially of breast and prostate tissues.
- Soy (from high isoflavone soy milk concentrate) provides isoflavones (e.g. genistein) that help maintain healthy hormonal activity.
[Reference: Wei, H. et al. "Antioxidant and Antipromotional Effects of the Soybean Isoflavone Genistein." Proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine 208:5 (1995), 124.]***
- Broad-spectrum antioxidant cruciferous vegetables and related antioxidant phytonutrients support healthy tissue growth throughout the body.***
- Exclusive antioxidant cruciferous blend contains broccoli, radishes, kale, black mustard, brown mustard, and watercress. These provide indole carbinols and isothiocynates, such as sulforaphane.
- Added benefit from additional antioxidant phytonutrients: D-limonene, a citrus terpene, chalcones from licorice root, and isoflavones, such as genistein from soybeans.
- Convenient serving: Each tablet provides the antioxidant phytonutrients in one optimal serving of cruciferous vegetables, plus other related phytonutrients.
- Contains no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or sweeteners.
*** In the book "The Definitive Guide to Cancer" by Burton Goldberg it states that:
"The genistein in soy products, like certain anticancer drugs, impedes the action of estrogen and the formation of new blood vessels that would otherwise feed a tumor's growth. Researchers now report that genistein blocks the expression of several oncogenes, believed to program the production of cancer cells."

Factoid: In an article published in the November 19, 2005, issue of the British medical journal The Lancet (Vol. 366, Number 9499), Harvard University researchers show that low fruit and vegetable consumption is the third leading cause of cancer worldwide, right behind smoking and alcohol consumption. It has never been easy for the vast majority of people to make cruciferous vegetables a significant part of their daily diet, and thus deficiencies are widespread. With research confirming the benefits of cruciferous phytonutrients -- while at the same time pointing out that, due to processing, we might not be getting as much of them as we thought -- the benefits of supplementation become all the more obvious.

The Function Of The Licorice In Cruciferous Plus®, & How It Works:
Licorice root contains sweet substances known as chalcones. These beneficial compounds have been shown to prevent the formation of a byproduct of testosterone that spurs the growth of prostate cancer. Chalcones are also relatives of antioxidant flavonoids, and as such, help to protect the body's cells in many different ways.
Will the licorice cause blood pressure to rise?
We are fully aware of the relationship between large doses of licorice root and the effect on blood pressure. Though GNLD's Cruciferous Plus® contains licorice, the amount of glycyrrhizin (the
component found in licorice which causes high blood pressure) is so low that there is no risk of high blood pressure from taking Cruciferous Plus®.
Just to be on the safe side, anyone under the care of a physician, or taking medication for high blood pressure/hypertension should consult with their physician before taking products containing licorice.
