Monsanto and its biotech colleagues have been engaged in manipulating and monopolizing the food supply and economy, producing chemicals poisonous to plants, animals (including humans) and the environment, and annihilating small farmers.
Studies show that Monsanto's GMOs and their famous glyphosate increase human susceptibility to allergies, suppress the immune system, and possibly cause autism, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and various types of cancer and birth defects.
Fortunately, scientists and doctors have identified some ways in which these unwanted toxins can be removed or at least reduced in percentage in our body.
Undoubtedly, the best way to avoid the accumulation of toxins is to opt for a healthy, ecologically responsible way of life that tends to natural detoxification, so we present you 10 natural remedies whose detoxification effects have a solid and scientific basis that supports them .
Garlic (Allium sativum)
Garlic has been used for its medicinal properties for thousands of years. A study carried out by researchers at the University of Washington showed that it contains high amounts of vitamin C, which helps to stimulate the immune system, it also has a high percentage of powerful antioxidants that protect the body and eliminate free radicals and heavy metals from the bloodstream.
Goji berries (Lycium barbarum)
The ingredients found in the Goji plant have been shown to possess antioxidant, anti-aging, and anti-tumor properties. According to the Journal of Drug Design, the active principles of this plant protect the liver from injuries due to exposure to chemicals and reduce the toxicity of the organs induced by chemotherapy.
Milk thistle or milk thistle (Silybum marianum)
It is an herb that several studies have shown to be effective in helping to detoxify the liver of dangerous elements. A Hungarian medical journal presents the case of workers exposed to the industrial toxins toluene and xylene who "improved significantly" when they consumed this type of thistle.
Coriander (Coriandrum sativum)
It has been shown that coriander, also called coriander, can be useful in reducing liver toxicity by inhibiting non-positive oxidation processes.
A study in the journal Toxicology and Industrial Health explains that treatment with coriander leaves and seeds helps to improve the adverse effect of hepatotoxicity and the Journal of Pharmacy and Bioallied Sciences maintains that its hepatoprotective activity is surely due to the antioxidant potential of its compounds phenolics.
This single-celled green algae that belongs to the phylum Chlorophyta has long been known to have beneficial effects on the body. A recent study published in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Pharmacology confirms Chlorella's ability to detoxify heterocyclic amines (HCA) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). These carcinogens are created when animal fat is burned in the cooking process. In fact, the National Cancer Institute warns that cooking meats over direct fire and on barbecues can be dangerous due to the formation of these compounds.
Broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and kale are valuable for two reasons: they release a substance that activates detoxification enzymes and they also produce indole-3-carbinol, which helps deactivate estrogen metabolites, that may protect against cancers caused by hormone-like endocrine disruptors, according to the journal Environmental Toxicology and Pharmacology.
Pomegranate (Punica granatum)
This fruit (both its pulp and rind) is a powerful decontaminant according to several scientific studies. "We have shown that Punica granatum has antioxidant and antigenotoxic properties," the researchers wrote in the journal BioMed Research International. Pomegranates contain ellagic acid that can inhibit the aromatase enzyme linked to breast cancer and its bioactives stop the DNA damage of carcinogens present for example in coal tar; they also have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anticancer effects, according to the Journal of Medicinal Food.
Indian gooseberry (Phyllanthus emblica)
Studies published in the journal Clinical Physiology, Pharmacology and Food state that the Indian currant has been shown to be effective in preventing and reducing the toxic effects on the liver of alcohol, of various drugs, of heavy metals (iron, mercury) and environmental fungi. The hepatoprotective actions of the Indian gooseberry are based on its ability to scavenge free radicals, its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and on the modulation of the xenobiotic detoxification process and lipid metabolism.
Beetroot (Beta vulgaris)
This vegetable contains large amounts of betaine. Studies show that betaine is essential for proper liver function and can actually help prevent or even reverse liver disease. The liver is the main organ responsible for detoxification of the body. By supporting the liver in the production of bile and the regeneration of new liver cells, the direct consequence is an improvement in the body's ability to deal with and eliminate toxins.
Green tea (Camellia sinensis)
Green tea has been used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years for its medicinal properties and because it is considered a super detoxifier, as it contains high levels of polyphenols. Polyphenols are powerful antioxidant compounds that are especially beneficial in helping the body rid itself of toxins by scavenging free radicals and heavy metals.
