ANDREW LESSMAN'S Cruciferous Extracts is a unique combination of powerful extracts from what are now accepted as the healthiest of vegetables – The Cruciferous. We are all familiar with cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage, along with some less recognized members, including mustard seed and Japanese wasabi. Cruciferous vegetables are the healthy vegetables children love to hate and sadly, they don't fare much better with adults. Given our limited consumption of these vegetables, a supplement is the only other means of enjoying their remarkable benefits. Unfortunately, making an ethical supplement was not possible until recently, because doing so requires more than putting dried veggies in a pill. In fact, the only way for a vitamin to provide the benefits of these vegetables is via extracts verified to deliver specific beneficial compounds from each vegetable. Our Cruciferous Extracts formula has been in development for more than a decade, but now, we can finally deliver certified standardized extracts of key compounds from a wide variety of Cruciferous vegetables. The most important of these Cruciferous extracts are the Glucosinolates, including Sulforaphane. Glucosinolates are a very broad family of extremely beneficial compounds that give Cruciferous vegetables their characteristic taste and are also responsible for their health benefits. Four of the six extracts in this formula (Brussels Sprouts, Kale, Wasabi and Mustard Seed) are standardized for high levels of Glucosinolates, including the remarkable 10% level found in our Mustard Seed Extract. Our Broccoli Extract is our most potent ever at an amazing standardization of 1.2% Sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is the compound attributed with Broccoli's long list of health benefits. We round out the formula with extracts of Red Cabbage standardized for high levels of Polyphenols and Anthocyanins. Our Cruciferous Extracts provides a unique blend of standardized extracts from a broad array of Cruciferous vegetables to provide a convenient and economical tool to help overcome the absence of these remarkable foods and their health benefits from our diet.

My fav product from Andrews line
This was something I searched for four years and never saw one that seemed beneficial for various reasons but I saw this and bought it a few months ago and I feel great and I know it's doing wonderful things for my body. This is so healthy for the body and I'm so happy my body is enjoying the benefits. There's no other product like it.

My Body THANKS You!!!
I'm embarrassed to tell you that I am 65 yrs. old and I have never in my life eaten any veggies other than potato and corn. In other words I guess I must have tasted them when I was young and decided "never again". I have worried about not eating them for the past 20 years. Andrew you have taken a big weight off of my shoulders. There is no way to express how grateful I am for this product. I take your Founder's and many more of your products. I would never get my supplements any where else. You are to be trusted. Now, the biggie........if anyone can do this....you can. I want a breakfast pill a lunch pill and a dinner pill. LOL. I'm not that interested in food and the buying of and the cleaning up etc. That would be my dream come true! You know I'm just teasing. You have the best customer service anywhere! Thank you for everything, Sherrie Ries

I'm so glad you have this product
I know how good for you these veggies are, but no one eats them every day. Some of them I don't like, like cabbage. It's a great way to get the benefits without the problems and discomfort they can cause.

I must admit that I was a little nervous about taking this product, as I was worried that it might cause the "gas" problems that you generally get from eating these kinds of veggies. Well, I am happy to say that I have not had any problems with this supplement. I am relieved. Now, I can get the benefits without the terrible side effects. Thank you Andrew...
