Sulforaphane is a powerful nutrient. Research is showing that it helps protect your body from cancer and even viruses (like COVID-19).
The best part of it is, you find it in dark green vegetables like broccoli and brussels sprouts.
Dr. Christine Houghton (sulforaphane expert) joins Dr. Mark Sherwood in this episode to reveal how to activate your cellular defenses with sulforaphane.
About Our Guest: Dr. Christine Houghton
Dr. Christine Houghton holds a PhD in Nutrigenomics and a BSc in Biochemistry from the University of Queensland as well as a Graduate Diploma in Human Nutrition from Deakin University in Victoria. She is a registered Nutritionist and Adjunct Lecturer in the School of Human Movement and Nutrition Science at the University of Queensland. Following 3 decades as a private practice Nutritionist, Christine founded the Brisbane company, Cell-Logic which researches and manufactures nutrigenomic ingredients for clinical application. The company’s primary focus is on the research and development of sulforaphane, a broccoli sprout-derived bioactive phytochemical that targets the upstream causes of disease. The company also uses this ingredient to develop evidence-based nutrigenomically-active encapsulated formulations for clinician prescribing. Christine has authored a number of peer-reviewed scientific papers together with “Switched On – Harnessing the Power of Nutrigenomics to Optimize Your Health”, a book she wrote as a way to introduce the complexities of nutrigenomics to patients whose clinicians have prescribed these formulations. She is an engaging speaker whose evidence-supported presentations may challenge accepted but often-outdated paradigms. Christine’s forte lies in taking complex biochemical concepts and translating their essence so that they are relevant to practicing clinicians and their patients. Christine is a regular presenter at nutrition, scientific and medical conferences around the world.
