Broccoli belongs to a group of veggies known as cruciferous vegetables, and is a true miracle food believed to support immunity and bone health, maintain cholesterol levels that are already within a healthy range, and cleanse the body.
Coconut milk is made from the flesh of mature coconuts and is naturally sweet and creamy. It contains lauric acid, which has antimicrobial and anticancer properties and can help boost immune function.
Garlic is considered both a vegetable and an herb and is clinically proven to support the immune system. Did you know there are over 300 varieties of garlic grown around the world!

Red onions are a rich source of quercetin and anthocyanin, powerful antioxidants that protect the heart and lower inflammation and cancer risk.
