Product Description

Eating a high amount of cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, has been associated with a lower risk of cancer; namely lung and colon cancer. Studies have suggested that sulforaphane, the sulfur-containing compound that gives cruciferous vegetables their bitter bite, is also what gives them their cancer-fighting power.  Other easily recognized cruciferous vegetables include cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, turnips and cabbage, as well as the lesser-known arugula, broccolini, daikon, kohlrabi and watercress.

Broccoli’s health benefits are wide-ranging:

  • Fighting cancer, namely lung and colon cancer
  • Improving bone health through vitamin K
  • Looking younger through vitamin C
  • Improved digestion and natural detoxification via natural fiber
  • Protection from chronic disease such as coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, obesity and certain gastrointestinal diseases
