How “Unimportant Molecules” Impact the Immune System | Joseph Pizzorno
Did you know that there are over 50,000 molecules in plant foods? 😱But here’s the kicker: Much of these nutrients–which are key for optimal immune, respiratory and mitochondrial function, and protecting us from disease–are now diminishing from our food supply due to modern agricultural practices. 👎🏼 This week on The Goodness Lover Podcast we spoke with Dr. Joseph Pizzorno - naturopathic physician, educator, researcher, founder of Bastyr University, textbook encyclopedia writer, and editor of "Integrative Medicine: A Clinician's Journal," the most widely distributed peer-reviewed journal in the field of natural medicine. 👨‍⚕️ We dove into Dr. Pizzorno's wealth of knowledge to learn about the power of phytonutrients, including:🔬How quercetin showed protective benefits from COVID-19 in a new research study🧐  Why important molecules in food have been deemed unimportant😣 How the insecticide glyphosate poisons the production of these key nutrients🦠 How disrupting the soil’s microbiome affects our microbiome🍎 How phytonutrients are depleted in our food🧪 How to support the natural detoxification of the chemicals we eat from food✨ Get 15% off your first order of Goodness Lover vitamins & supplements!
