Why Broccoli is healthy

Broccoli is a powerhouse of ingredients that are super healthy for our body. Broccoli is the ideal green leafy vegetable one must consume on a regular basis.

  1. Broccoli is rich in antioxidants, vitamin C and vitamin K. Broccoli also contains various B vitamins and other minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron, etc. Hence broccoli is good for you to maintain a healthy beautiful skin and strong bones as well
  2. Research shows that broccoli contains chemicals that helps the body in fighting cancer
  3. Broccoli is also a good source of dietary fiber which helps in reducing bad cholesterol and aids digestion. Broccoli also helps in preventing constipation and aids weight loss as well
  4. Broccoli contains omega3 fatty acids which is why broccoli is good for a healthy heart
  5. Being a cruciferous vegetable broccoli contains raffinose — a sugar that requires your gut bacteria to ferment it hence broccoli can cause gas and make you bloat but broccoli benefits far outweigh the negatives. As alternatives, don’t eat much in one go or you can boil it. Boiling broccoli will make it easier to digest but will not prevent bloating fully.
