‘IT’ ingredient helps to block UV Rays that cause skin cancer
Skin cancer is a common concern amongst both men and women as we get older but, unbeknown to many, nearly all skin cancers can be treated effectively if they are found early, so knowing what to look for is key. Most skin cancers are actually caused by exposure to the sun. This may be long term exposure, or short periods of intense sun exposure and burning that can damage the DNA in the skin cells. This damage can happen years before a cancer develops, but what if there was a wonder ingredient that could help to protect you from the sun and help prevent skin cancer at the same time?
Not only was your mother right when she told you to eat your broccoli because it’s good for you, but the new ‘IT’ ingredient holds a multitude of skincare and health benefits that look after you from the inside out. So why is broccoli so wondrous? Unlike any other greens found in your kitchen, this natural anti-oxidant has proven to be effective at reducing the risk of skin cancer.
Broccoli contains an enzyme called myrosinase that changes the sulfur-based chemicals into sulforaphane which holds anti-cancer properties. Recent studies by Dr Mercola, Osteopathic Physician from Illinois Natural Health Centre stated, ‘Sulforaphane encourages the production of enzymes that protect your blood vessels and reduce the number of molecules that cause cell damage by as much as 73 percent’2. Not only have studies confirmed this upon oral consumption, but Dr. Dickinson’s research in the University of Arizona on broccoli's chemopreventive properties1 also indicates that sulforaphane is highly adaptable, when it comes to inhibiting cancer-causing pathways 1
Dr Dickinson’s research states Sulforaphane is the kind of compound that has so many incredible theoretical applications if the dosage is measured properly. We already know that it is very effective in blocking sunburn, and we have seen cases where it can induce protective enzymes in the skin. 1
One of the many natural products researched for use in topical prevention of UV-induced skin cancers, broccoli can treat all your skincare and health needs simultaneously.
