Q: I was told to take Designs For Health Brocco Protect. Two questions: 1) I thought I read under the description that it has a Glutathione component to it’s ingredients…..does it? Is it a detoxifier in any way? 2) If a person may have borderline thyroid issues – it is said broccoli and cruciferous veggies is not good for that. How would this interact with thyroid?
A: We do carry BroccoProtect caps by Designs For Health (DFH) .
BroccoProtect does not have glutathione in it, rather it has sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) as the active ingredient.
SGS supports the safe transformation and elimination of estrogen metabolites because it can stimulate both enzymes glutathione S-transferase and quinine reductase which convert estrogen quinones into safer metabolites.
Unlike consuming lots of cruciferous veggies, because of the special processing BroccoProtect goes through, it • does not contain goitrogens and will not block the uptake of iodine by the thyroid.
