I’m a HUGE fan of the humble broccoli ~ but is it really all it’s cracked up to be nutritionally?
Broccoli has long been known for its cleansing properties and its nutrients that support the liver in the second phase of detoxification. Broccoli’s nutritional profile is impressive.
It contains high levels of fiber (both soluble and insoluble) and is a rich source of vitamin C. In fact, just a 100-gram serving of broccoli will provide you with more than 150% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C
Also rich in vitamin A, iron, vitamin K, B-complex vitamins, zinc, phosphorus and phyto-nutrients which are compounds which lower the risk of developing conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers. Fresh Broccoli sprouts have up to fifty times more cancer fighting benefits than broccoli alone, so either you like the sprouted kind or the traditional florets both are going to boost your immune system and your health.
