Capers are one of the highest plant sources of the flavonoids rutin and quercetin, which are both powerful antioxidants.
Cayenne pepper is a good source of beta carotene and antioxidants that support the immune system. The key compound in cayenne called capsaicin is also cardioprotective, anti-inflammatory, helps prevent kidney stones and speed up metabolism and has beneficial effects on the GI system.
Celery is rich in the flavonoid apigenin, which has been found to inhibit tumor initiation, progression, and metastasis in a wide variety of cancers.
Enzymes in fresh lemon juice accelerate the digestive process. Even though lemon juice is acidic, it actually has an alkalizing effect on the body.
Pure olive oil is high in nutrients including vitamins D, E, K, and A as well as omega-3 fatty acids. For the highest quality, look for organic extra virgin olive oil in dark glass bottles or tins that have an expiry date.
With the Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens in this recipe, you not only get 5 different types of collagen, but also camu camu, acerola cherry, horsetail extract (silica), and zinc gluconate to ensure your body can actually USE the collagen you’re taking.
Parsley is a detox superfood, purging the body of accumulated toxins such as mercury, cadmium, and lead.
Red onions are a rich source of quercetin and anthocyanin, powerful antioxidants that protect the heart and lower inflammation and cancer risk.
Sardines are small nutrient-rich fish that are often consumed whole. Considered one of the most nutrient-dense foods available, they are an excellent source of vitamins B12, B3, and D, as well as calcium and omega-3 fatty acids.
Sun-dried tomatoes are tomatoes that have been dried to preserve them longer. Just like fresh tomatoes, dried tomatoes contain vitamin C, as well as vitamin K, manganese, and potassium.
Tomatoes contain the 4 major carotenoids, alpha and beta-carotene, lutein, and lycopene, which help maintain eye and vision health, boost immunity, and lower inflammation.
