SULFORAPHANE FIGHTS INFLAMMATION
Inflammation is the single most important driver of human aging, and it is a factor in cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Virtually all people who live to be 100 have very low inflammation.
SFN has been shown in multiple studies to significantly reduce markers of inflammation, such as C-reactive protein and IL-6.
These markers are known to have profound effects on overall health, energy level and cognition.
