DETOX Benefits: Pumpkin seeds - Pumpkins contain zinc which is a mineral that builds up the intestinal lining, making it harder for parasites to invade your body. Red cabbage has a high level of polyphenols the same complex antioxidants found in red wine, blueberries and green tea linked to the prevention of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
Cabbage is a great cleanser as well thanks to its glucosinolate content which produces anti-inflammatory and cell-detoxifying compounds. Cabbage juice is an age-old remedy for stomach ulcers, and recent research is suggesting a sure link between cabbage and healthy digestion. It is an excellent source of fiber (super important for cleansing), Vitamin C (immunity), and Vitamin A.  Sulforaphane, in Cruciferous veggies is already known to trigger the liver to produce enzymes that detoxify cancer-causing chemicals.
