Cabbage: From Cholesterol to Cancer, this cruciferous vegetable packs a punch

April 29, 2016

 


Here are my 3 reasons it should be a staple in your diet

 

Cabbage has many varieties including but not limited to green cabbage, red cabbage, savoy cabbage, bok choy & brussel sprouts. Its good in salads, tacos, pan seared, steamed and even baked.

 

1: Being such a great source of dietary fiber, it has the potential if it works well with your individual system to help balance cholesterol levels. 

 

2: Being such a great source of Vitamin C, it acts as a anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory.

 

3: Contains mother natures Glucosinolates, which are naturally occurring compounds in cabbage's that provide us with "anti-cancer” benefits. The glucosinolates found in cabbage can be converted into compounds that are cancer preventive for a variety of different cancers, including bladder cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, and prostate cancers

 

When cabbage is fermented, its called sauerkraut and the process of fermentation makes it even more nutritious than just cabbage by itself. When buying sauerkraut, always make sure its raw so you can obtain the maximum nutrient profile from this classic culinary treat. 

 

Did You Know: Cabbage juice has been known to help heal stomach ulcers.

 

Did You Also Know: Cabbage is high in Maganese: Great for helping to build & support spinal bones.
