Savoy Cabbage

Savoy cabbage or also known as curly cabbage is one of the prettiest and unique varieties of cabbage. It has green, slightly curly leaves and is less tightly packed than some of its relatives in the cabbage family. For a long time it wasn’t a very popular ingredient but has recently risen in prominence. As a vegetable it is extremely versatile and can be used in many dishes from soups and salads to wraps and lasagna. Savoy cabbage is also very healthy, packed full of vitamins C, B6, E, folic acid, as well as potassium, calcium, and iron. During your next trip to the grocery store pick up a savoy cabbage and try it out in some new dishes!

Toxins and the Body

The current generation is exposed to more toxic chemicals and substances than any other previous generation. Exposure to toxins can lead to many different diseases and health problems. Thus it is important to understand how the body gets rid of toxins and what toxins we are exposed to in our daily life that we can avoid.

The body has 6 main ways or avenues to remove and eliminate toxins:

Liver: This organ is the major player in helping the body eliminate toxins by inactivating toxic substances and removing toxic substances and metabolites.

Kidneys: The kidneys are crucial in filtering the blood and eliminating toxic medications, waste products, and harmful chemicals.

Intestines: The gut although most often associated with digestion is another important avenue for toxin removal via the stool.

Respiratory Tract: Another way the body removes toxins is in the lungs via coughing and the removal of phlegm.

Skin: The largest organ in the body, the skin, is exposed to toxins everyday in many of the products we use including hair products, soap, and laundry detergent. This means the skin must have good ways to remove these toxins and primarily does this in the form of sweat.

In order for the body to function properly, limiting exposure to toxins and ensuring that your body is able to remove toxins is very important. To learn more about how to detoxify your life check out the links below.
