Broccoli

Health Benefit to You

Broccoli is the superhero of the vegetable kingdom with its rich vitamin A content--notice broccoli's dark green color as an indicator of its hearty carotene content. One cup of broccoli gives you 10% of your daily iron requirement, and the vitamin C content helps the body to absorb the iron. If you're a calorie counter, count broccoli in with only 22 calories for one-half cup chopped and boiled and 12 calories for one-half cup raw chopped. Across the nutrition scale, broccoli contains all the nutrients mentioned above in addition to vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc.

Because of its impressive nutritional profile that includes beta carotene, vitamin C, calcium, fiber, and phytochemicals, specifically indoles and aromatic isothiocynates, broccoli  may be responsible for boosting certain enzymes, which could help to prevent cancer, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and high blood pressure, that help to detoxify the body.
