Broccoli - The Super Food

Eating broccoli raw is not only tasty, but because it is known as a 'super food' the health benefits are extremely important and worth taking serious note.

Broccoli is rich in Vitamin A - which is good for growth and the repair of body tissue. It also has Vitamin K which is essential for blood clotting and keeping your bones healthy.

Following research broccoli has entered the 'super food' category owing to it's ability to combat cancer. The evidence showed that broccoli reduced the risk of cancer in the lining of the uterus and also in the stomach, the oesophagus, pancreas and the colon.

Broccoli contains isothiocyanates. These compound chemicals help to produce natural substances that can fight cancer  'in-house'.

It is best to eat broccoli raw or just lightly steamed so as to not destroy all the nutrients.

Broccoli has only 30 calories per 100 grams, so an even bigger plus.

As a further affirmation of how beneficial broccoli is - scientists have discovered that it also contains substances that act in the same way as the drugs used to treat Alzheimer's disease.

Conclusion - make sure you add broccoli to your shopping list!
