Sulforaphane is a biologically active phytochemical found in broccoli.
• Phagocytosis is the ability of white blood cells to kill harmful substances.
Sulforaphane has shown to enhance phagocytic activity.
• Sulforaphane is a potent inducer of phase II enzymes involved in detoxification.
• Sulforaphane has been found to have an anti-cancer effect.
• Data show that sulforaphane is a highly promising substance for cancer prevention.
• Sulforaphane may be promising in the treatment of cancers, including those characterized by increased inflammation and involving viral or bacterial-related pathologies.
