Broccoli sproutsExcellent source of vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, E, K, folate, dietary fiber, manganese, tryptophan, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, protein, omega 3, iron, calcium, zinc. Broccoli sprouts supply 94 mcg of folic acid. Deficiency of folic acid during pregnancy has been linked to several birth defects. Broccoli contains the phytonutrient sulforaphane and indoles, which have significant anti-cancer effects. Research on indole-3-carbinol shows this compound helps deactivate a potent estrogen metabolite (4-hydroxyestrone) that promotes tumor growth, especially in estrogen-sensitive breast cells; while at the same time increasing the level of 2-hydroxyestrone, a form of estrogen that can be cancer-protective. Indole-3-carbinol has been shown to suppress not only breast tumor cell growth, but also cancer cell metastasis (the movement of cancerous cells to other parts of the body). Sulforaphane boosts the body's detoxification enzymes, it is a potent inducer of Phase 2 liver detoxification enzymes and helps prevent bladder, lung, colon, breast, ovarian, prostate, colorectal and lung cancers. Broccoli sprouts, alone, can decrease tumor weight by 42% and optimize our cells' ability to disarm and clear free radicals and toxins. Researchers estimate that broccoli sprouts contain 10-100 times the power of mature broccoli to boost enzymes that detoxify potential carcinogens. Broccoli supports stomach health. It has the ability to eliminate Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). 100 grams of broccoli sprouts contain 250 milligrams of sulforaphane glucosinolate that can also help repair sun-damaged skin. Broccoli sprouts protect the heart, eyes, bones, immune system and help prevent birth defects.
Spinach: Has at least 13 different flavonoid compounds that function as antioxidants and as anti-cancer agents. Provides cardiovascular, atherosclerosis and diabetic heart disease protection. Spinach is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals such as A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, E, K, PP, folic acid, manganese, magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, sodium, sulfur, iodine, tryptophan, copper, phosphorus, zinc, selenium, protein, dietary fiber, omega 3 and Chlorophyll. An excellent source of folate, which is needed by the body to help convert a potentially dangerous chemical called homocysteine that can lead to heart attack or stroke. Spinach also contains lutein, a carotenoid, protecting against eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and cataracts. The flavonoid combats ovarian cancer. Vitamin K1 helps prevent excessive activation of osteoclasts, the cells that break down bone. Additionally, friendly bacteria in our intestines convert vitamin K1 into vitamin K2, which activates osteocalcin, the major non-collagen protein in bone. Calcium and magnesium are an excellent source of bone-building nutrients. One fresh glass of spinach juice, drank in the morning will provide a relief from constipation, ulcer, anemia, weakness, convulsions, thyroid gland inflammation, low and high blood pressure, gum bleeding, headaches and migraines. Vitamin C and beta-carotene are a water and fat soluable antioxidant team that help to prevent cholesterol from oxidation. Oxidized cholesterol sticks to blood vessel walls and can cause blocked arteries, heart attack or stroke.
Green beans: Excellent source of vitamins and minerals such as A (beta-carotene), B1(thiamin), B2(riboflavin), B3(niacin), C, K, manganese, dietary fiber, potassium, folate, magnesium, iron, copper, calcium, phosphorus, protein, tryptophan and omega-3 fatty acids. Beta-carotene and vitamin C, provide cardiovascular protection against diabetic heart disease, oxidized cholesterol, heart attack and stroke. They help to protect the cells from the damaging effects of free radicals and are a strong anti-inflammatory that provide relief from asthma, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Folate helps to prevent DNA damage and mutations to cells. Iron transports oxygen from the lungs to all body cells and copper helps to properly utilize it; also it is a part of key enzyme for energy production and metabolism.
Brussels sprouts: Contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, K, calcium, protein, iron, folate, manganese, dietary fiber, potassium, tryptophan, omega 3 fatty acid, phosphorus and magnesium. Their capacity for detoxing (glucosinolates), as an antioxidant (vitamin A, C, E) and an anti-inflammatory (vitamin K, omega 3 fatty acid and glucosinolates) are all three necessary for prevention of all forms of disease. Brussels sprouts provide all three. They also provides cardiovascular and digestive support, aid with Crohn's disease, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, metabolic syndrome, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, type 2 diabetes, and ulcerative colitis.
Red & Golden beets: Great source of folate, manganese, potassium, fiber, vitamin C, magnesium, tryptophan, iron, copper and phosphorus. Contain powerful nutrients that help protect against heart disease, birth defects and certain cancers, especially colon cancer and help lessen inflammation. Betacyanin, the pigment that gives beets their rich, purple-crimson color is also a powerful cancer-fighting agent. Beets increase the activity of two antioxidant enzymes in the liver, glutathione peroxidase and glutathione-S-transferase. The liver is the body's primary detoxification organ where toxic substances are broken down and eliminated, generating a lot of free radicals in the process. Glutathione peroxidase and glutathione-S-transferase are the bodyguards for liver cells, protecting them from free radical attack.
