ED vs. EL: Foods that Enhance and Purify Melanin

From the Melanated Man:

Spring will officially be upon us in a couple of days. There’s no better time to alter your eating habits according to your biology Melanin-Dominant Family than right NOW! For those of you who truly want to reconnect with the REAL YOU, please take heed to the list of foods below that can assist you in your journey.

It’s an extensive list, by no means a perfect one. But I believe it’s pretty DARN close. I trust the source of the list put in the time and effort to validate it as well.

It’s time to cleanse ourselves of the toxins that are poisoning us from the inside out, and transform the way we are living in these stressful times. When our consumption changes, we will transform not only ourselves but the world around us.

Hope this list is suffice.
