Wellness Tip

Our bodies have a natural detoxification process, but in the modern world, many of us are overloaded with toxins from our air, water, environment, and food.

Certain foods are particularly potent detoxifiers. Both the allium family (onions, garlic, leeks, etc.) and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts, etc.) contain organosulfur compounds like sulfoxides and sulforaphane. These organic chemicals have been shown to help detoxify the liver, including getting rid of potential carcinogens. Incorporate either (or both!) alliums or cruciferous veggies into your diet this week.

Conventionally grown and raised foods are often treated with pesticides or are GMOs contaminated with glyphosate. Go organic, particularly with the EWG’s Dirty Dozen, to avoid further pesticide toxicity. Even if you can’t buy organic, washing produce can help reduce the amount of pesticide residue.
