DID YOU KNOW...... Vegetables like broccoli belonging to the plant genus Brassica contain tons of health-promoting compounds and potentially powerful phytochemicals. Raw broccoli contains almost 90% water, 7% carbs and 3% protein, and almost no fat. Broccoli is very low in calories, providing only 31 calories per cup. These nutrients contribute toward:
Protection against cell damage: Broccoli contains glucosinolates and vitamin C, which have been shown to fight against oxidative stress.
Improved blood sugar: Broccoli contains sulforaphane, which may inhibit glucose production and improve glucose.
Reduced risk of cancer: Diets rich in a cruciferous vegetable intake, including broccoli, may reduce cancer risk in many tissues including lung, bladder, and prostate.
Besides being fibrous and flavorful, the tops of broccoli may contain more nutrients than the stalks. A study showed that broccoli seeds and florets had the highest proportion of bioactive compounds compared to broccoli stalks.
