Brown rice, cruciferous greens, zucchini, carrots, turmeric and other spices combine to make this traditional Ayurvedic detox meal deliciously nutritious. Whole grains such as brown rice help lower blood pressure and are associated with lower risks of type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, weight gain and colon cancer. They have been shown to reduce the risk of developing chronic disease.
Kale, the "queen of greens" is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet. It lowers bad "LDL" cholesterol and boosts good "HDL" cholesterol. Kale helps fight infection and is associated with a reduced risk of kidney cancer.
Turmeric contains curcumin which appears to help prevent and/or arrest cancer cell growth. Curcumin may prevent DNA mutation that causes cancer and it also helps regulate programmed cell death. Unlike chemotherapy to which cancer cells may become resistant, curucumin activates several mechanisms of cell death simultaneously making it more difficult for cancer cells to avoid destruction.
