Researchers recently found that a certain type of immune cell protects the gut from toxic bacteria and is also involved in protecting the whole body from major health problems including bowel cancers, inflammatory diseases, allergies and even obesity.
A study published in Nature Immunology found these cells developed in direct response to what we eat, and that there are specific compounds in cruciferous vegetables that activate them. So, make sure your gut is producing these important cells by including plenty of broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, kale, cabbage, and bok choy in your diet.
