What are the Health Benefits of Broccoli?
Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable, well known to prevent a variety of cancers, such as breast, uterine, ovarian, cervical & brain cancer.
Crucifers are rich in sulfur which is crucial for numerous functions, including antioxidant activity, in the body.
Broccoli is one of nature’s multivitamins. It has nutrients to support every organ & system in the body.
Do be in fear of eating broccoli (or any other crucifer), because of the trend in calling them ‘goitrogens’. You’d have to eat 100 pounds of raw broccoli every day to negatively affect the thyroid.
Broccoli is actually very healing to the thyroid and helps protect it from radiation.
