Broccoli is another Amazing Healthy Food

I personally view broccoli as one of my top ten Amazing Healthy Foods. This vegetable originally from Italy can be found all year long and we should consume it as often as possible due to the multiple benefits that one serving can bring you.

This amazing food has a fabulous supply of vitamins, including the best antioxidant that is vitamin  C, and anticancer enzyme myrosinase making this awesome vegetable one of the most desired to prevent and help fight cancer. An excellent source of vitamin K, chromium and folate and a very good source of fiber, vitamin A, vitamin E, and vitamin B6, and B2 is also a good source of Omega-3 fats, zinc, calcium and also a good source of protein.

Broccoli is known for many heath benefits including:
  • Detoxifies the body
  • Reverse diabetes heart damages
  • Prevent osteoarthritis
  • Cancer prevention
While broccoli is not on the list of anti angiogenesis foods of Dr William Li, it sure is an anticancer powerhouse.

For maximum benefits, I eat my broccoli raw in salads or as a snack during the day!
