Combine some or all of these ingredients for a nutrients-rich feast. Arugula, for instance, contains indoles that deactivate cancer-causing agents. Also dandelions, arugula’s, or radicchio’s bitter flavor is very supportive for the digestive system and liver function.
Saponins in asparagus, lycopene in tomatoes, and sulfuring in broccoli sprouts also fight cancer. Walnuts and flaxseed oil are packed with heart disease-fighting omega-3 fats and ellegic acid. And seaweed is one of the best sources of hormone-supportive lignans and
bioavailabe minerals. This salad is, in one word, just a miracle for maintaining “happy and healthy liver”.
