A liposomal encapsulated extract from the fresh shoots of garden cress (Lepidium sativum) is used. The shoots have the highest level of phytonutrients (secondary plant ingredients) known for their health-promoting properties. Garden cress contains the secondary plant ingredient sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is a strong, indirect antioxidant. Unlike the known antioxidants such as vitamin C, the active ingredient does not neutralise free radicals directly but indirectly by activating the body’s own phase ll detoxification enzymes. This, in turn, triggers lasting antioxidative defence mechanisms in the cells.
