SFL Nutrition Tip of the day                                                                              

  • Broccoli – Why your mother made you eat it….

Broccoli is best known for its ability to prevent cancer by protecting cells from free-radical damage and carcinogens. These effects are most pronounced in cancer of the rectum, colon, esophagus, larynx, lung, prostate, oral cavity, pharynx, and stomach. Broccoli also protects against heart disease, cataracts, constipation and hemorrhoids, diabetes, arthritis, and allergies; helps to normalize body fluid levels; controls high blood pressure; and promotes bowel health; and for women, helps lower the incidence of cervical cancer.

Broccoli is one of the best vegetable sources of calcium. It also contains iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, chromium, copper, manganese, fiber, vitamin c, vitamin b6, vitamin k, riboflavin, niacin, thiamine, folate, pantothenic acid, and small amounts of amino acids and lipids.

In order to benefit from the high nutritional properties of broccoli, the florets should be uniformly green. Broccoli with a purple or bluish-green tint is higher in beta-carotene than the green. Yellow means the broccoli is not fresh.
