Super-foods like garlic, ginger, onions broccoli sprouts and eggs (GGOBE) support healthy detoxification systems by providing the body a very special mineral — sulfur. One of the most abundant in the body, sulfur is required for the synthesis of glutathione, one of our premier endogenous antioxidants, taurine that helps with the cardiovascular system and other amino acids like methionine and cysteine that aid in comprehensive detoxification.
GGOBE, especially the vegetables, also provide a nutrient called sulforaphane, an organosulfur compound. Sulforaphane exhibits anticancer, antidiabetic, and antimicrobial properties. These super bio-detox foods are also a rich source of IP-6 which aids in the metabolism of insulin and calcium, promotes healthy hair growth, bone marrow cell metabolism, eye membrane development and helps the liver transfer fat to other parts of the body.
We suggest regularly incorporating these foods daily to add variety to the diet and to achieve that jump-start in functional detoxification.
