Broccoli Sprouts Can Detox Pollutants

Cancer Fighting Vegetables to the Rescue

A new study out of China that was done by the researchers from John Hopkins University and other institutes from China & United States found that broccoli sprouts were able to flush out toxin pollutants from the body fastener than any other cruciferous vegetable. 
"The results were published in the journal Cancer Prevention Research.  They found that throughout the 12-week period the participants taking the broccoli sprout drink increased their rate of excretion of benzene by 61%. 
Benzene is a known carcinogen.  In the U.S. benzene exposure comes predominantly from car and truck exhaust, emissions from coal and oil combustion, evaporation from industrial sites, and gas stations.  Smoking is another source of benzene exposure. "
It is known that cruciferous vegetables like kale, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and brussels sprouts are known to fight cancer by improving the liver's ability to detox and cleanse. These vegetables contain glucoraphanin. "It is shown when glucoraphanin is chewed or swallowed it produces a cancer-protective compound called sulphoraphane.  Sulphoraphane activates enzymes that take up the pollutants and flush them out in the urine."

Just another reason to eat all your broccoli and brussel sprouts to protect your body from built up toxins from our environment! Our WildGreen Organic Juice is a great way to obtain concentrated high quality amounts of kale and green vegetables that your body can easily digest and use correctly in the body. Removing the process of breaking down the fibre allows the body to instantly absorb the nutrients in the organic juice.
