Detox Support Provided by Collard Greens
The detox support provided by collard greens includes antioxidant nutrients to boost Phase 1 detoxification activities and sulfur containing nutrients to boost Phase 2 activities. Collard greens also contain phytonutrients called glucosinolates that can help activate detoxification enzymes and regulate their activity. Four key glucosinolates that have been clearly identified in collard greens in significant amounts are glucobrassicin, glucoraphanin, gluconasturtiian, and glucotropaeolin.
