How Green Produce Helps Your Body
Green produce, including everything from leafy greens to celery to green apples, is really good for you. When you eat this color family, your mouth is the first body part to benefit. You have to chew up foods that fall into the green family much more than you do some other color families.
This means, that your mouth is able to get more nutrients directly to the tissues that need them. Plus, the denser texture of green produce produces more saliva and scrapes at the teeth more when you chew, allowing it to act like a toothbrush.
Green produce also provides your mouth with chlorophyll, which carries a bunch of nutrients that your entire body needs. One of the best things you can get from chlorophyll is the introduction of isothiocyanates. These cells travel around your body from the moment they are chewed up, searching for any carcinogenic cell in the body.
It then attaches to that cell and removes it from the body. Each time you eat green produce, you are filling your body with cancer-fighting cells and lowering the chances you have anything cancerous growing in your body.
