The next time you’re plotting what to grow in your garden, consider broccoli! This green tree-like veg is super yummy and beneficial to your health. Did you know studies have proven that lutein, which is a carotenoid in broccoli, helps prevent aging and promotes healthy vision? Also, the glucoraphanin in broccoli helps detoxify and repair our skin from sun damage. And the high amount of potassium helps maintain a healthy working nervous system, brain function and regular muscle growth.

Who knew we could benefit so much from eating one vegetable!

Just an FYI or 2…

Broccoli like most other vegetables keeps more of its nutrients when cooked for less time and with less water – according to the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Of course, freshly picked, raw and organic would be the best way to go!

Secondly, if you think you suffer from thyroid problems you may want to avoid broccoli all together. The goitrogens that naturally occur in broccoli and other foods can interfere with proper functioning of the thyroid gland, especially if you already have existing and untreated thyroid issues.

Here’s an infographic describing 10 health benefits of broccoli that you just might not know!
