ExPress Essentials - Research Brief:
General structure of Glucosinolates
During processing, cooking and digestion, glucosinolates are broken down by enzymes produced either by the plant, or by the colonic microflora, to give biologically active but often short-lived reaction products. Of these the isothiocyanates are of great importance because they have been shown to be highly effective inhibitors of chemically-induced tumours. Certain isothiocyanates have also been shown to inhibit the promotion of tumours by enhancing programmed cell death in chemically damaged tissues, and hence accelerating the deletion of initiated cells. Isothiocyanate inhibit mitosis and stimulate apoptosis in human tumor cells, in vitro and in vivo. (4)
Women whose diets are low in dietary indoles often produce an excessive amount of estrogen in their bodies. When the liver cannot neutralize this over-abundance of estrogen, the hormone turns into a cancer-causing agent. (5)
Men, as they grow older, face similar challenges as their estrogen levels increase and their testosterone levels decrease. This hormonal imbalance can lead to prostate problems; something that almost every man will likely face in his lifetime.
