 INTRO FAQ

Taking a deep, easy breath is something many of us take for granted— unless we’re unable to do so. For those with asthma, there are moments when breathing easy can be anything but. A growing body of research shows promise to leverage sulforaphane to reduce certain types of asthma symptoms. Let’s explore the findings.

SULFORAPHANE'S BENEFITS FOR ASTHMA

Free radicals wreak havoc in our body and are often caused by polluted air, pollen, diesel exhaust and tobacco smoke. Free radicals can cause oxidative tissue damage, which leads to inflammation and respiratory conditions like asthma.

According to a 2023 study linking oxidative stress, pollution, and asthma, (1) “Uncontrolled oxidative stress within airways amplifies inflammatory responses and tissue damage and alters immune responses, increasing the risk of asthma onset and asthma progression.”

But there’s evidence that sulforaphane can help. A promising study from 2014 found that sulforaphane in broccoli sprouts lessened the nasal allergic response (2) to diesel exhaust particle exposure. A 2022 chronic allergic airways study (3) done in mice found that sulforaphane prevented or reversed several hallmarks of asthma including epithelial thickening and inflammation.

A third study found that sulforaphane significantly increased activity of antioxidant enzymes (4) in human airway cells. These enzymes offer important protection against the free radical damage of exhaust, smoke and ozone, for example, that would typically cause inflammatory and allergic effects.

WHERE ASTHMA AND ALLERGIES OVERLAP

It is commonly known among medical professionals that having other allergic conditions like food allergies, seasonal allergies, or eczema make it more likely that you’ll also have asthma. The connection between these conditions (8), inflammation, may also present why sulforaphane can be so effective in addressing them. Sulforaphane activates the transcription factor Nrf2 that produces antioxidants and reduces systemic inflammation.

A 2017 study (5) was the first to show that several allergic markers were decreased after Nrf2 activation by sulforaphane in those with a house dust mite allergy. A later study (6) agreed that activation of Nrf2 by sulforaphane reduced airway inflammation by ‘upregulation of antioxidants and downregulation of inflammatory cytokines in airways.’

THE TAKEAWAY

Sulforaphane continues to show great promise as a supportive adjunct therapy for those with asthma, especially those with allergic and environmental triggers. Because sulforaphane’s effects on asthma symptoms varies among asthma types, (7) there’s still room for more exploration on exactly how its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits can help us all breathe easier.

"Feel amazing. Started this two months ago. I used to get sick or really bad allergies and sinus headaches once or twice a month. Knock on wood I have been completely healthy the last couple of months which is strange considering this is peak allergy season for me normally. Skin looks great. Great improvement even with digestion!"

I have been committed for the past week and noticed less bloat. My period is starting soon so we will see if I notice an improvement with my usual symptoms. I plan to stay committed for a couple months to see if it makes a big difference.

"After about 2 or 3 weeks of broc shot I've noticed a big difference in the clarity of skin, decreased mental fog, more energy, and less mood swings. I'm excited to experience more changes after prolonged use and will continue to purchase."

It really balances me out. I just feel better when I take it. I've been enjoying the benefits since January. 2 times I took a week long break and within a few days each time I could tell

This is the energy boost I have been looking for to replace coffee. Great taste too, although I wish there was a sampler set with all three flavors.

I've been using the Broc Shot daily for a few months now and the changes to my skin are noticeable. The extra shine is definitely noticeable. In addition, I feel like my energy levels and daily focus has improved.

This was a great start for my wellness journey - I noticed a difference right away within the first 3 days: more energy and mental clarity, within a week I saw clearer skin and more regulated digestion patterns. I am pretty sure my nails have grown quicker than usual as well :)

I love it, I love knowing I am getting a potent dose of broc sprouts daily. it is quick and easy and my skin is looking brighter. I do crossfit and have not been taking any pre workout or even coffee in the am anymore.
