    An advanced antioxidant formula made from broccoli seeds for long-lasting cell protection

    Crucera-SGS offers the chemo-protective properties of sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) to provide cells with long-lasting protection from free radical damage and to support liver detoxification.


    Sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) is a natural substance extracted from the seeds and sprouts of select broccoli varietals. It is an indirect antioxidant that provides long-lasting cell protection from free radical damage. Typical antioxidants‚ such as vitamin C‚ vitamin E‚ and beta carotene‚ work "directly" to neutralize free radicals and are usually effective for only approximately three hours after ingestion. When Thorne's Crucera-SGS is ingested and begins to break down in the gut‚ it releases sulforaphane‚ thereby activating the body's natural detoxification and antioxidant enzymes and providing protection to cells from free radical damage for several days. Each capsule of Thorne's Crucera-SGS is equivalent to eating two pounds of cooked broccoli.

    Sulforaphane was first identified in 1992 by researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and is now believed to be the key component of many of the health benefits attributed to cruciferous vegetables‚ such as broccoli‚ cabbage‚ cauliflower‚ and kale. Research on sulforaphane has produced more than 500 journal articles over the past two decades.

    Crucera SGS by Thorne along with cod liver oil and vitamin D3, Crucera cured my hyperthyroidism during one of my pregnancies. I consulted a naturopath after the diagnosis, because I refused to take the meds the allopaths offered. I asked for the docs to be patient while I tried this route. After 2 months, the Maternal-fetal docs were astonished to see the dramatic improvement in my blood work and that this "broccoli supplement" worked. I couldn't have been more pleased with Crucera (and thus also began my love for broccoli as a super food and my support for Thorne Research in general).

    Pros

    Potency, effectiveness, "cured" hyperthyroid naturally during pregnancy, so I didn't have to mess with meds that had potential side effects on unborn child.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    I have not started using it so cannot speak to its efficacy, but sulforaphane has a great reputation for helping phase II of liver detoxification and it's convenient to get in supplemental form instead of eating a vast quantity of broccoli.

    Pros

    I like Thorne products because they do not use binders, fillers, additives, preservatives, or excipients and they have a reputation for quality.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Crucera by Thorne was recommended to me by my naturopathic doctor. No matter how much broccoli you may eat it will not compare to the amount of protection for immune support that this broccoli seed extract can give.
    I would recommend this item to a friend.

  • Question:
    My daughter just got pregnant using IVF. Would it be safe for her pregnancy to take Crucera once the pregnancy is established? (She had to take so many hormones during the process that I am worried about her.) Also, can she take crucera when she is nursing? TX.
    Marilyn S Habermas-Scher on 7/02/2017 Answer:
