Cruciferous vegetables - spec broccoli and broccoli sprouts have a whole host of benefits but the two that seem to have Claughton a bit of attention are DIM and sulforaphane. Most of the work seems to show a de tease in BC cancer stem lines. The confusion with DIM might be over a few papers that discuss protective effects from DIM in colon and endometrial cancer via estrogenic receptor mechanisms.
These are heavy going but interesting for anyone looking at epigenetics and nutrition.
I don't take cruciferous veg supp, but I do try and buy a fresh kilo of brocolli, a cauliflower and half a cabbage each week, and incorporate them in my salads - some uncooked some blanched 5 minutes. For me toothe important thing is to try and find a habit I can keep up.
I have a nutriblend and I use it a few times a week - it was of great help through chemo. I am mindful of juicing as I believe it is important to consider whether you actually digest AND absorb what you ingest - and digestion starts with chewing slowly. It is one of the reasons why I try and get my Vit C from lemons although I also take a Vit C supp ( with fruit the sugar absorption is dependent on the fiber content of the fruit - the fiber in the fruit protects you from "the sugar hit" as it decreases fructose and sucrose absorption. If you take that away you will get a higher sugar load)
My biggest problem are grains - incorporating LOTS of them in my day. I love bread - and would love to hear from anyone who bakes and what flours do you use.
