broccoli

There is one vegetable you can every day, and that is broccoli. Some people dislike its taste, but it is too nutritious and too good for you to be ignored! This amazing vegetable is rich in vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, but also calcium and several other antioxidants.

Nutrients in broccoli are anti-inflammatory and are part of the detoxification process in the liver. It is low in calories and high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals that offer numerous health benefits. This green veggie has long been considered as one of the healthiest veggies because of its ability to fight cancer and high content of vitamin C that aids in iron absorption.

Stems may not be as flavorful as florets, but they are just as nutritious. In fact, the stems contain even more calcium, iron, and Vitamin C than florets. Florets only provide more Vitamin A than stems of the broccoli.

    Very informative, thanks! Broccoli belongs to a family of vegetables called cruciferous vegetables and its close relatives include brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage. I read that broccoli contains sulforophane, a sulfur-containing compound present in most cruciferous vegetables. But what’s new is that researchers are studying the anti-cancer properties of sulforophane and have come to few interesting conclusions, although more research is needed broccoli may fight cancer in the future.

    Broccoli is low in calories and high in fiber, vitamins and minerals that offer numerous health benefits. It has vitamins A and C, although not as much as broccoli, and also packs iron and calcium. Eating foods with a natural fiber like broccoli can prevent constipation, maintain a healthy digestive tract, and lower the risk of colon cancer. Adequate fiber promotes regularity, which is crucial for the daily excretion of toxins through the bile and stool.

    Helpful writing so far! I have pleased to read it. Broccoli is a good source of fiber and protein and contains iron, potassium, calcium, selenium, and magnesium as well as the vitamins A, C, E, K and a good array of B vitamins including folic acid. Thank you so much!
