Purple head broccoli (Brassica oleracea L. var. italica Plenck), a functional food crop for antioxidant and anticancer potential
This study provides the scientific basis for the use of broccoli as easily affordable potent functional food and explores these extracts for antiproliferative potential by morphological changes, cell cycle analysis, measurement of intracellular peroxides and mitochondrial membrane potential changes.
Influence of a Selenium Biofortification on Antioxidant Properties and Phenolic Compounds of Apples (Malus domestica)
It was shown that the biofortification, which was performed as a foliar application implemented in usual calcium fertilization, led to significantly increased selenium contents in the fruits.
Biofortification of broccoli seedlings with selenium: influence on bioactive compounds and in vivo toxicity
Biofortification of broccoli seedlings with selenium: influence on bioactive compounds and in vivo toxicity The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of biofortification with selenium
Broccoli (Brassica oleracea L. var. italica) Sprouts as the Potential Food Source for Bioactive Properties: A Comprehensive Study on In Vitro Disease Models
In vitro antioxidant, antiproliferative, apoptotic, and antibacterial activities of broccoli sprouts were confirmed as a potential food source for consumers’ selection and functional food industry.
Bioactive Compounds and Bioactivities of Brassica oleracea L. var. Italica Sprouts and Microgreens: An Updated Overview from a Nutraceutical Perspective
The present review summarizes the updated knowledge about bioactive compounds and bioactivities of these broccoli products and discusses the relevant mechanisms of action.
Polyphenolic Profile and Varied Bioactivities of Processed Taiwanese Grown Broccoli: A Comparative Study of Edible and Non-Edible Parts
The findings suggest that broccoli and its byproducts might serve as a promising source for further development of food or pharmaceutical products.
Broccoli seed extracts but not sulforaphane have strong free radical scavenging activities
Summary The abilities of broccoli seed extracts and purified sulforaphane (SF) to scavenge 2,2′-azinobis [3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulphonate] (ABTS•+), 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH•) and
Taxonomical Identification of Himalayan Edible Medicinal Plants in Bhutan and the Phenolic Contents and Antioxidant Activity of Selected Plants
It is demonstrated that edible medicinal plants could be a potential source of natural antioxidants that can boost the immune system.
Physicochemical Contents, Antioxidant Activities, and Acute Toxicity Assessment of Selenium-Enriched Chinese Kale (Brassica oleracea var. alboglabra L.) Seedlings
The oxidative activities of hydroponically produced Chinese kale (Brassica oleracea var. alboglabra L.) seedlings grown under different concentrations of selenium (Se) biofortification with sodium
Selected antioxidant properties of alfalfa, radish, and white mustard sprouts biofortified with selenium
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of application of two mineral selenium forms (selenite Se4+ or selenate Se6+) on the accumulation of this element by alfalfa (Medicago sativa), radish


Cultivation conditions and selenium fertilization alter the phenolic profile, glucosinolate, and sulforaphane content of broccoli.
It is shown that selection for one bioactive component (Se) may decrease the content of other bioactive components such as phenolics and glucosinolates in broccoli, and that not all broccoli may contain all health-promotingBioactive components.
A Comparative Study on the Polyphenolic Content, Antibacterial Activity and Antioxidant Capacity of Different Solvent Extracts of Brassica Oleracea Vegetables
Summary Brassica vegetables are rich in polyphenols, flavonoids and glucosinolates. Investigation was undertaken to optimise the best solvents among 60% ethanol, acetone and methanol for the
Comparative effects of selenate and selenite on growth and biochemical composition of rapeseed (Brassica napus L.)
High levels of selenium can cause adverse effects in plants as well as animals. In a greenhouse experiment, rapeseed (Brassica napus) was grown in an alkaline sandy loam soil treated with different
