Cabbage - Rich in disease-fighting compounds Cabbage*
Cabbage contains powerful antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, enzymes that can protect against certain cancers, and is high in vitamins A, B, C, and K1. Cruciferous plants like cabbage, broccoli, carrots, kale, and others are inherently high in fresh, naturally occurring indole compounds.
Cabbage has been associated with digestive benefits such as repairing ulcers as it is a huge source of vitamin U (which is actually not a vitamin, but an enzyme known as S methylmethionine). Research shows that vitamin U, is effective in promoting the rapid healing of peptic ulcers.
Vitamin U and its effects on peptic ulcers
A clinical study was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of concentrated cabbage juice in the treatment of peptic ulcers. Patients at San Quentin Prison with a diagnosed ulcer crater were treated in a double blind control experiment. They were given either concentrated cabbage juice or placebo facsimile. The evaluation of the merit of this treatment was based upon repeated x-ray examinations of the ulcer crater. A period of 22 days was allowed for ulcer crater healing time. 1
The results of this experiment indicated concentrated cabbage juice to be effective in healing of peptic ulcer.
Three Elements Inc.'s Proprietary Extraction Methods
With our proprietary method of extraction we are able to increase the longevity of the nutrients found in cabbage. We will be able to provide cabbage at the maximum nutrient value.
That is why the private label extracts provided by Three Elements Inc., are a true innovation in the field. With our proprietary method of extraction, we solve the problem of the time constraints with nutritional extracts. The result is product specific shelf life , and a higher level of purity and nutrient strength than what is on the market.
