BROCCOLI

 

Broccoli is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. According to the USDA Nutrient Database, it contains more vitamin C than an orange (per 100g serving), which makes it a great source of antioxidants. Other vitamins that are found in broccoli are: vitamin K, important for bone health; and vitamin A, essential for your eye health. Broccoli is very good for your digestive system as it not only helps digestion, due to high fiber content, but it also prevents constipation, alkalizes your body and helps prevent gastric cancer. Other health properties of broccoli are: anti-inflammatory, regulates blood pressure, supports the body’s detoxification, reduces cholesterol, and because of its high amount of potassium, it aids the nervous system.
