Broccoli is high in vitamin C, K, A, folate, and Manganese. There are approximately 300 studies on the health benefits of broccoli; some benefits include the reduction in certain cancers, anti-allergy and reducing cholesterol levels. Broccoli also supplies potent detoxification benefits due to the specialized phytonutrients. Broccoli is rich in substances called isothiocyanates, chemicals shown to stimulate the body’s production of its own cancer fighting substances. These enzymes, in turn, neutralize potential cancer causing substances before they have a chance to damage the DNA of
healthy cells. SO DRINK UP OR EAT UP!
