Biochemical / Physiological Actions
Selective inducer of phase II detoxification enzymes with anti-cancer properties. An organic sulfur compound found in cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli. Sulforaphane is an anticancer, antimicrobial, and antidiabetic compound found in cruciferous vegetables.
It induces the production of detoxifying enzymes such as quinone reductase and glutathione S-transferase that cause xenobiotic transformation. Sulforaphane also increases the transcription of tumor suppressor proteins and inhibits histone deacetylases. It modulates inflammatory responses by suppressing the LPS-mediated expression of iNOS, COX-2, IL-1β, and TNF-α.
