Broccoli contains more calcium than a glass of milk and high dosages of Vitamin C, Folic Acid, Potassium and Vitamins A, B6 and K.
The above nutrients aid bone health, prevent muscular degeneration, cataracts and heart disease. Also high in fibre, Broccoli prevents constipation and maintains low blood sugar levels.
New research also suggests that Glucoraphanin and Indole-3-Carbinol, contained in Broccoli Sprout Extract, have anti-cancer properties which are particularly effective against stomach, breast, cervical and prostate cancers.
