Broccoli is one of the most nutrient dense foods available. Here are some of its nutritional benefits:
- Top anticancer vegetable (especially colon cancer): loaded with phytonutrients sulforaphane and indoles, which help protect and fight against tumors and help the liver work better
- Rich source of many vitamins and minerals: folic acid, vitamins A and C, calcium, and carotenoids, especially lutein and zeaxanthin, both good for the eyes
- Contains more fiber and protein than most other vegetables: 4.7 grams per cup of each
Call to Action:
Include broccoli in your salads and as a regular vegetable you eat. For only 44 calories per cup you’ll reap lots of nutritional value.
