Broccoli Extract launched with help of John Hopkins University Professor
Wednesday, 31 March 2010 | Admin
Comvita Broccoli Extract, which we have had in stock for a few months now, will have its main UK launch in a couple of weeks time. This will be done with the help of Dr. Paul Talalay, M.D., Professor of Pharmacology at John Hopkins University School of Medicine.
One of the benefits of Comvita Broccoli Extract is its high levels of Glucoraphanin, a powerful compound that recharges your antioxidant defence enzymes, helping your body to protect itself.
Professor Talalay is the founder of The Brassica Chemoprotection Laboratory, an institute dedicated to studying the edible plants that induce protective enzyme activity in the body. At John Hopkins University in the USA he is the John Jacob Abel Distinguished Service Professor of Pharmacology and Director of the Laboratory for Molecular Sciences.
The Glucoraphanin levels found in broccoli is an area that he has carried out important research into.
He will be in the UK for the upcoming main launch of Comvita's broccoli product coinciding with the Natural & Organic Products Europe Expo of 11-12th April.
We look forward to hearing what this internationally renowned expert has to say about the health benefits of the humble broccoli, and will bring you more news and information on it afterwards.
