The quality of the ingredients used in the BioTE DIM SGS Plus supplement are extremely high, pharmaceutical grade ingredients formulated to help you experience optimal health. Pomegranate extract and sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) have been included to enhance benefits of DIM, support healthy metabolism of estrogens and testosterone (via phase I and phase II enzymes), and support healthy liver detoxification pathways. o Pomegranate is an excellent source of ellagic acid, a phenolic compound that inhibits phase I activation of carcinogens, induces phase II enzymes, and may protect the liver against toxin-induced damage. Sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) is a key constituent found in the sprouts and seeds of cruciferous vegetables — particularly broccoli — and serves as an indirect antioxidant, is liver protective, neuroprotective, promotes healthy gut flora, and supports healthy inflammatory processes.
What is SGS?
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 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.
