This awesome broccoli detox juice comes from Kibby's Blended Life.
Kibby is a landscaper by trade, but she has since found her real passion is blogging and sharing information about health, wellness, inspiration, green living, organic gardening, green smoothies and plant-based recipes. Kibby lives in North GA with Scott, and their 3 dogs, and lovely cat.
This lovely lady creates some awesome recipes, and I had to share this brilliant broccoli juice with you.
Broccoli is the detox diva of the food world. Broccoli is rich in glucosinolates, and is very high in glucoraphanin, which the body converts to sulforaphane using the enzyme myrosinase (also found in broccoli). You can find myrosinase in mustard, radish, and horseradish, so pairing broccoli with these foods heightens the effects. This crazy-amazing crucifer is utterly loaded with antioxidants (glutathione plus vitamins C and E), alkalizing minerals (magnesium, zinc), flavonoids, carotenoids, and omega-3s to combat oxidation and inflammation.
High in vitamin K, folate, and iron, broccoli is also wonderful for oxygenating the blood. It contains vitamin C to aid iron absorption. The leaves are high in calcium and antioxidants like vitamins A and C. We push the florets, stalks, and leaves through the juicer.
