Health Benefits of Broccoli

Broccoli is one of the few veggies I love. I love it best when cooked with beef- beef broccoli. Don't  you love it too?

My tot also eat broccoli  just recently, because she is like me- not into veggies much. But I'm glad she is starting to like few veggies now unlike before she never eat any except sayote.

Broccoli provides a great assortment of health benefits, as it is full of vitamins, antioxidants, chromium, anti-viral and anti-ulcer components. Broccoli contains a wealth of the vitamins A, B6, B12, C, K and E. It's also a good source of calcium, iron, zinc, fiber, folate, protein, potassium, magnesium, Omega 3 fatty acids, water and tryptophan.

  1. Features

    • Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable and contains phytochemicals called indoles and isothiocyanates that can boost the activity of enzymes in the body that suppress cancer-causing agents.


    • The vitamins and amino acids in broccoli make it an effective detoxifier that assists the body in ridding itself of toxins and free radicals--cleansing the blood and helping it eliminate the harms such toxins can cause.


    • The calcium, folic acid, iron, proteins, anti-oxidants, detoxifiers, phosphorus and other vitamins in broccoli provide ideal nutrition for women who are pregnant, helping them maintain regular tissue growth.


    • Broccoli is rich in cholesterol-reducing fiber, chromium and potassium, which can help control blood sugar and blood pressure in addition to decreasing blood cholesterol levels.


    • The vitamins and minerals in broccoli act as strengtheners for a person's immune system and defend the body from different types of infections.


    • The health benefits of broccoli have been associated with the prevention and restriction of medical conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis, vitamin deficiencies, diabetes, heart conditions, cancers and Alzheimer's disease.


    • Although broccoli can be prepared and cooked in various ways, steaming it or having it raw is the best way to eat broccoli because the nutrients are preserved at their highest content.

There are so many reasons to love it even more, huh?
