Eat Alliums for Natural Detoxification

Green onions are a member of the allium family — a family that includes onions, leeks, chives, shallots, and scallions and has incredible detoxifying properties. Alliums stimulate the body to produce an antioxidant called glutathione, which helps the liver remove pharmaceuticals and other endocrine-disrupting chemicals from the body. Get more alliums by sprinkling raw green or Vidalia onions onto your salads or tuck them into sandwiches.
