Allium Garlic, onions, leeks and chives contain flavonoids that stimulate the production of glutathione (the tripeptide that is the liver's most potent antioxidant). Glutathione enhances elimination of toxins and carcinogens.
Selenium button mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, cod, shrimp, snapper, tuna, halibut, calf's liver, salmon, and brazil nuts. Brazil nuts are one of the most concentrated food sources of selenium. Selenium has been shown to induce DNA repair and synthesis in damaged cells, to inhibit the proliferation of cancer cells, and to induce their apoptosis, the self-destruct sequence the body uses to eliminate worn out or abnormal cells.
We grow sustainably, preserve open spaces & ecosystems, care for animals, support the arts, facilitate local products & economies. A large part of our work is philanthropic, our Horse, Hound, & Farm Rescue's mission is adopting hound dogs, wild horses, and supporting other family farms. We work in concert with wildlife preservation, artistic creations, and horticultural traditions. We were awarded a Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education grant in 2005.
