What is Sulforaphane?
Sulforaphane is a compound that is created by combining the myrosinase and glucoraphanin. Broccoli and daikon radish are ingredients where these components are most prevalent. According to National Institute of Health published studies, amongst the many benefits of sulforaphane, reducing the risk of cancer growth has been the most discussed and sought after to achieve. It is able to not only prevent but also can slow the growth of cancers. Our combination of ingredients and our no heat processes make this drink one of the best when trying to reduce cancer risks. Sulforaphane also has the ability to fight inflammation, act as an antioxidant, and has anti-aging properties.
At Portland Juice Co. we want you to get the most out of your juice. We do so by cold pressing our juices, meaning that we do not apply heat. This allows the juice to retain its maximum amount of nutrients. This includes sulforaphane. When heat is applied to the active broccoli and daikon radish, it reduces so many of the potential benefits. Our products are also unpasteurized and certified organic. By choosing one of our drinks that contain this powerful compound, you allow your body to absorb the full potential and advantages. We offer convenience and satisfaction when seeking out a healthier lifestyle.
