Sulforaphane and Other Nutrigenomic Nrf2 Activators: can the Clinician’s Expectation Be Matched by the Reality?

Houghton CA, Fassett RG, Coombes JS. Oxid Med Cell Longev. 2016;2016:7857186

Abstract: The recognition that food-derived nonnutrient molecules can modulate gene expression to influence intracellular molecular mechanisms has seen the emergence of the fields of nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics. The aim of this review is to describe the properties of nutrigenomic activators of transcription factor Nrf2 (nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2), comparing the potential for sulforaphane and other phytochemicals to demonstrate clinical efficacy as complementary medicines.
