what does Green Defense Detox do?
Scientific studies confirm that phytonutrients such as polyphenols, chlorophyll, glucosinolates and other antioxidants help support the body’s detoxification processes.
Green Defense Detox is rich in phytonutrients that help support the body’s self-defense and detoxification mechanisms, while supporting overall well being.
Green Defense® Detox provides an array of nature’s best ingredients:
• Polyphenols from milk thistle, dandelion, and artichoke and a variety of vegetables.
• Fibers from acacia gum and FOS (FructoOligoSaccharides) to support the growth of good bacteria and enhance detoxification.
• BroccoMax® broccoli seed extract is manufactured using a patented process that preserves myrosinase, the enzyme in broccoli that metabolizes SGS (Sulforaphane Glucosinolate, a.k.a. glucoraphanin) in the small intestine into sulforaphane.
Sulforaphane is a potent inducer of Phase 2 detoxifying liver enzymes and helps protect cellular DNA as well as promote healthy cell replication and liver health.
No refined sugars or artificial flavors.

Can artificial sweeteners harm gut health and make you gain weight?Early September we published an overview of various natural and artificial sweeteners that are currently available and possible avantages or disadvantages associated to them.
Until very recently the clear-cut explanation of all official governmental dietary agencies as well as most mainstream dieticians was that artificial sweeteners are harmless and not a single iota of proof was available to the contrary.
Even your humble writer still believed sweeteners are relatively harmless as by definition, rats and mice aren't human so evidence about harmfulness for those laboratory animals doesn't prove too much.
However, over time more and more evidence has come up that artificial sweeteners are truly not as good for your waistline as you think they are, in ways that wasn't looked at before. Our gut microbes, which have a bigger influence on your weight and insulin sensitivity than we realize, are negatively inflenced by the artificial sweeteners we ingest.
What foods deserve the name 'superfoods' and why?Many different foods have been touted as superfoods over the past few decades and undoubtedly many more will come.
Why are we all so focussed on superfoods? Secretly, we all hope for the miracle natural 'drug' to cure or prevent heart diseases and other degenerative diseases, especially when it can compensate for other bad habits, such as smoking, drinking too much alcohol, not sleeping enough and moving too little.
In order to do away with the hype of it all, we at Pasio decided to get rid of the category of 'superfoods' and merge all edible products (fats, proteins and superfoods) into one major category called 'nutrition'.
While there is no official legal definition of superfoods, this doesn't mean there isn't a scientific basis for calling a food “super.”
According to nutritionists, a superfood is the type of fruit and veggies that packs a lot of micronutrients into each calorie and is linked with a reduced risk of chronic disease. Studies also suggest that people who eat more of them tend to be thinner and live longer than those who rarely or never eat them.
However, what type of micronutrients these are , is up for debate.
History of conventional cancer treatmentsThere isn't a single person alive who hasn't experienced how a family member or loved one died because of cancer.
For myself this was most dramatically present in my mom and her sister who both developed breast tumors in the late 70s.
While my aunt chose to get treated conventionally, my mom chose the other path and went to a doctor who practiced an alternative diet-based therapy. In the end both died, my aunt of breast cancer, and my mom of a massive heart attack when her (then considered) atypical symptoms were unrecognized in hospital.
Since then I've been watching with both disgust and admiration how science has ben progressing. Disgust because conventional science kept ignoring the positive impact alternative medicine, along with diet and lifestyle can have on health. Admiration because of the major advances that have been made using ever less disruptive and dangerous approaches.
While it sometimes may seem as if cancer is a modern disease, nothing could be further from the truth. Cancer occurrences have been noted throughout history.
What are free radicals?The body is under constant attack from oxidative stress. Oxygen in the body splits into single atoms with unpaired electrons. Electrons like to be in pairs, so these atoms, called free radicals, scavenge the body to seek out other electrons so they can become a pair. This causes damage to cells, proteins and DNA.
Free radicals are associated with human disease, including cancer, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and many others. They also may have a link to aging, which has been defined as a gradual accumulation of free-radical damage.
Substances that generate free radicals can be found in the food we eat, the medicines we take, the air we breathe and the water we drink. These substances include fried foods, alcohol, tobacco smoke, pesticides and air pollutants.
Free radicals are the natural byproducts of chemical processes, such as metabolism. Free radicals can be seen as as waste products from various chemical reactions in the cell that when built up, harm the cells of the body.
Yet, free radicals are essential to life. The body's ability to turn air and food into chemical energy depends on a chain reaction of free radicals. Free radicals are also a crucial part of the immune system, floating through the veins and attacking foreign invaders.
What is DIM?Did you know that the unassuming broccoli or those mounds of Brussels sprouts may hold the answer to preventing breast cancer?
These types of foods fall into category know as Brassica vegetables, all of which contain a plant compound that has been known to detoxify excess estrogen and work to prevent hormone-related cancers. When you eat these veggies, the chewing process releases plant enzymes, which in turn create a phytochemical known as indole-3-carbinol (I3C).
Be kind to your bowels!Probiotics or beneficial bacteria are important for good digestive health. In order to keep these same bacteria happy and thriving, they need to be fed PRE-biotics, in other words, fiber!
Fiber is the undigestable part of vegetable foods. The most common source of fiber are beans and legumes, onions and garlic, cabbage, unpeeled potatoes as well as fruits such as raisins, figs, prunes, berries and (unripe) bananas.
