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 Thorne’s Crucera-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.* Each capsule of Thorne’s Crucera-SGS is equivalent to eating two pounds of cooked broccoli.*
Sulforaphane was first identified in 1992 by researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and is now believed to be the key component of many of the health benefits attributed to cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and kale.* Research on sulforaphane has produced more than 500 journal articles over the past two decades.

Can Your Products be taken out their capsules to take the product?
Most Thorne products can be taken out of the two-piece, pull-apart capsules. However, there are a few products we don’t recommend taking out of the capsule, which would be indicated in the ‘Warnings’ section on this website for the applicable products.
Does Thorne test its products on animals?
No, and furthermore, Thorne supports the objective of eliminating the laboratory testing of all animals.
As soon before I feel the effects of my supplement?
Every individual is unique and every supplement has a different “mechanism of action” for how it works in the body. Some products can provide a relatively fast result, such as with PharmaGABA for alleviating stress, or Melatonin for promoting sleep. Other supplement products, such as a multi-vitamin/mineral product, are for preventive health and general wellbeing, so an immediate response would not be expected. However, for some products, if you experience an overall sense of wellbeings, such as increased energy or improved mood, and that is the indication of use for which you are taking the product, then you are realizing the intended benefit.
Can pain medication and antibiotics interfere with the absorption of the nutritional supplement?
Thorne is not aware of anything in the current medical and technical literature that indicates that pain medications and antibiotics can interfere with the absorption of the nutrients in nutritional supplements; however, always consult with your health-care practitioner if you are concerned.
