10 Powerful Anti-cancer Juice and Smoothie Recipes

Cruciferous vegetables include vegetables like arugula, collard greens, turnips, watercress, broccoli, cabbage, kale, and cauliflower to name a few. Cruciferous vegetables are great anti-cancer foods because they are high in nutrients that neutralize free radicals. They also contain nutrients like carotenoids, vitamins and important minerals.
More importantly cruciferous vegetables contain glucosinolates. ~Glucosinolate compounds contain sulfur-containing chemicals that boost Phase II detoxification enzymes to promote antioxidant activity and reduce risks associated with developing different cancers. Glucosinolates are broken down to indoles, thiocyanates, isothiocyanates and nitriles during chewing and metabolism of these foods.
Research has shown that these compounds inhibit cancers of the bladder, colon, liver, breast and lungs.
