The Veggie That Looks Like the Lungs
Many people have said that you can tell which vegetable or fruit is good for what organ it is shaped as.
Carrots for example when you cut it in half looks like the eyes, grapefruits and oranges look like the mammary glands in women’s breasts, avocados looks like the uterus, celery looks like bones, sweet potatoes look like the pancreas, and there are more. Here’s the weird thing about these fruits and veggies that look like counterpart organs. They all are supercharged with vitamins and minerals that supplement those specific organs. Today, I am going to talk about the one vegetable that looks exactly looks like it counterpart. Broccoli.
Broccoli as you guessed it contains numerous amounts of helpful for the lungs because it contains something called sulforaphane which triggers or catalyze the function of macrophanges. Now what the H.E. double hockey sticks is macrophanges? Macrophanges are white blood cells that eliminate bacteria and the debris they release that accumulate on the organs of the respiratory system, making it more difficult for them to function properly. Basically, this active chemical helps cleanse the lungs this is especially important for smokers, and those trying to quit smoking.
Another thing that sulforaphane triggers is create a molecule called Nrf2. Nrf2 is critical to the creation of more antioxidants. This is so important for patients that have severe COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). This increase of antioxidants in the lungs in combination with the macrophanges have had some really impressive positive results.
There have been hundreds of different studies preformed with these two molecules and all have had some really positive results. Now please do not take this as a cure to some of the more serious diseases, this is far from that. This should be taken in the fact that when you do decide to quit smoking, you should eat more broccoli (raw if possible) to help you cleanse the lungs of all of the gunk that has been being build up over the years.
There is a general rule of thumb about cleansing the lungs after smoking is after 7 years of quitting smoking your lungs are cleared of all of the gunk and can now start to fix themselves, which can take up to another 7 years. Broccoli can speed this up, but not by much. You should, however, really look at introducing more broccoli to help it regardless.
So, eat up!
