The apples are full of wonderful nutrients and add a natural sweet taste. You get fiber, vitamins, minerals, and many beneficial phytochemicals such as D-Glucarate, flavonoids and terpenoids. All of these substances are used in the detox process. One flavonoid, phlorizidin is thought to help stimulate bile production which helps with detoxing the liver and helps to eliminate toxins through the bile. Apples are an excellent source of soluble fiber pectin, which can detox metals and food additives from your body. Its best to eat organic apples as they contain 15% higher antioxidant capacity to non-organic
The avocado is a wonderful fruit packed with antioxidants, lowers cholesterol & contains glutathione, which blocks at least 30 different carcinogens while helping the liver detoxify synthetic chemicals.
