Harvesting Natures Defence System to turn on your own cellular defences
Plants come under attack and therefore as they have evolved they have developed their own defence mechanisms to protect themselves, in the case of cruciferous plants like Broccoli and Daikon they produce and store separately 2 unique compounds. Glucoraphanin: a glucosinolate (sulphur containing compound ), the precursor to Sulforaphane. Myrosinase the enzyme that hydrolyzes (breaks down a compound by a chemical reaction with water ) glucosinalates. When we consume these two compunds in our body Sulforaphane (1-isothiocyanato-4(R)- methylsulfinylbutane ) is formed.
It is Sulforaphane that turns on our cells defence mechanisms, harnessing this power is what we are investing in with Brocshots . How remarkable that these plant compounds turn on exactly what our cells need to defend themselves

Detoxification: The process of removing toxic substances
Detoxification is a fundamental process of all of our cells. It is a built in defence mechanism needed to handle the end products of making energy, cellular processes and also toxins from outside of us that end up in our cells. When these toxins are not dealt with our cells become less functional, it is difficult for them to make energy and if there is enough toxin overload they can become sick and even die.
How do our cells detoxify?
The cells of our body have built in antioxidants. The major antioxidants that Sulforaphane activates that are critical for detoxification are:
An extremely important antioxidant capable of preventing damage to important cellular components caused by reactive oxygen species such as free radicals, peroxides, lipid peroxides and heavy metals.
Significant detoxifier of carcinogens and a key enzyme in Oestrogen detoxification
Plays an important role in the protection against metal toxicity and oxidative stress and is involved in zinc and copper regulation. Metallothionein’s have the capacity to bind cadmium, mercury, silver, arsenic and copper.
How does Sulforaphane turn on our cells
Detoxification/Antioxidants THE POWER OF Nrf2
What is Nrf2?
A protein that is a master regulator of antioxidant gene expression. We now know that our genes and the subsequent function they can control can be turned up or down. So, imagine if there was a protein that new all the genes that needed to be turned on at once to help our cells protect themselves. Well this is Nrf2, when activated by Sulforaphane the Nrf2 protein moves into the nucleus of the cell and switches on these 200 or so genes all at once, the master regulating switch.
Inflammation: part of the complex biological response of our body tissues to harmful stimuli, pathogens, damaged cells, toxicity, irritants etc. The function of inflammation is to eliminate the initial cause of cell injury, clear out dead and damaged cells from the original insult and the inflammatory process.
That is the positive side of inflammation but unfortunately this process can keep on going and result in chronic inflammation. Chronic Inflammation is the driver of many diseases.
How is Sulforaphane Anti-inflammatory/ The Power of inhibiting NF-kB?
What is NF-kB?
A protein that turns on the genes which promote inflammation, also linked with tumour cell growth, proliferation, angiogenesis, invasion and survival.
NF-kB is another master switch, this time the switch turns on our inflammatory pathways and when inflammation becomes chronic the switch can get stuck in the on position.
Sulforaphane is a known inhibitor / blocker of NF-kB.
Brocshots gives us a clinically potent and effective amount of Sulforaphane per serve. With this one shot we can activate Nrf2 and inhibit NF-kB effectively giving us a totally natural, scientifically proven way to work with our own genes to encourage optimal function and health at a cellular level through DETOXIFICATION, ANTI OXIDATION AND ANTI INFLAMMATION.
