A study performed in the Yangtze River Delta region of China, an area with severe air pollution, found that consuming a beverage made from broccoli sprouts may lessen the long-term health risks associated with air pollution. According to the study, broccoli sprouts are especially high in glucoraphanin, a type of antioxidant that can promote excretion of some airborne toxins from the body. The sprout juice is highly concentrated, and study authors say more research is needed to determine if the sprouts are as effective at lower concentrations. For now, it wouldn't hurt to add them to more of your sandwiches and salads or even in green smoothie recipes for a potentially toxin-blocking benefit.

Move over, fish oil supplements. A study comparing the effectiveness of fish oil and olive oil capsules at guarding against air pollutants found that olive oil was the clear winner.

After taking olive oil supplements, participants had an easier time breathing, thanks to improved blood vessel function and more tPA in the blood, a compound that dissolves blood clots.
