Leafy Greens Essential for Immune Regulation and Tumor Resolution

Green Leafy Vegetables

Story at-a-glance -

  • Researchers have discovered that a gene that is essential for producing critical immune cells in your gut, responds to the food you eat—specifically leafy green vegetables
  • Vegetables contain an array of antioxidants and other disease-fighting compounds. Some plant chemicals can reduce inflammation and eliminate carcinogens, while others regulate the rate at which cells reproduce, get rid of old cells and maintain DNA
  • Sprouts can contain up to 100 times more enzymes than raw fruits and vegetables, allowing your body to extract more vitamins, minerals, amino acids and essential fats from the foods you eat
  • The content of vitamins and essential fatty acids increase dramatically during the sprouting process. Depending on the sprout, nutrient content can increase as much as 30 times the original value within just a few days of sprouting, and minerals bind to protein during sprouting, making them more bioavailable.
  • Additionally, the sprouting process deactivates many of the anti-nutrients that are in the seeds
  • Two of the easiest and most efficient ways to optimize your vegetable intake is to juice your vegetables and add sprouted seeds.
