More than ten millions new cases of cancer are diagnosed each year and many experts believe that most cases are preventable through diet and lifestyle. For this reason, there is a growing body of evidence examining the role specific natural plant compounds may play in increasing the body’s natural defense against cancer.
Vital Immunity is a comprehensive natural defense formula that contains three of the most potent chemo protective plant compounds uncovered by anti-cancer researchers. Vital Immunity contains SGS (Sulforaphane Glucosinolate), I3C (Indole3-Carbinol), and DIM (Di-Indolyl-Methane), three phytonutrients that have displayed remarkable chemo protective qualities in decades of research.
In 1992, researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine identified the cancer-protective properties of sulforaphane, a compound that occurs naturally in broccoli. They found that sulforaphane induced protective enzymes in various tissues, especially in the liver, the body’s main detoxifying organ. Sulforaphane enhanced the liver’s Phase II detoxification and helped remove toxins that otherwise might create the mutations in individual cells that can lead to cancer. The research at Johns Hopkins culminated in a patented extract called SGS (sulforaphane glucosinolate) produced from proprietary species of broccoli seed with patented extraction methodology.
Vital Immunity also contains I3C (Indole3-Carbinol), another well-researched anti-cancer compound found in cruciferous vegetables. Scientists have identified I3C’s ability to modulate hormones in a way to help maintain healthy cell division. In a study at UC Berkeley, I3C was shown to be more effective against breast cancer cells than Tamoxifen, the leading breast cancer drug.
In Vital Immunity, there is a synergistic effect between I3C, which stimulates Phase I liver detoxification, and SGS, which stimulates Phase II detoxification enzymes in the liver.
Di-indolyl-methane (DIM), another phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables, has been shown in animal studies to help maintain normal levels of potentially damaging estrogens. Many studies have demonstrated that DIM and its precursor, I3C, have unique cancer-fighting benefits. These compounds have been found to alter estrogen metabolism in both men and women, thus protecting against hormone-dependent cancers such as those of the breast, cervix, and prostate. Vital Immunity also contains Silymarin from Milk Thistle, one of the most widely researched liver supportive herbs.
