Isothiocyanates are naturally occurring small molecules that are formed from glucosinolate precursors of cruciferous vegetables.

Healing Properties

Anticancer

Many isothiocyanates display anticarcinogenic activity because they reduce activation of carcinogens and increase their detoxification.

Disease / Symptom Treatment

Cancer

Bladder Cancer

Breast Cancer

Colorectal Cancer

Indoles and isothiocyanates that are generated from cruciferous vegetables can both stimulate apoptosis and confer protection against DNA damage in human colon cell lines.[1]
