Here’s how broccoli improves overall health

This vegetable is a rich source of iron, vitamin C, and antioxidants that boost energy levels and improve immunity. A power food, as it is often cited, broccoli packs a solid nutritional punch.

This wondrous vegetable is also rich in fibre, protein, calcium, selenium, and magnesium, therefore, be it fighting anaemia, building muscles or strengthening bones, broccoli is the undisputed wholesome goodness champion.

It is also beneficial for heart health, and can help prevent damage caused by the blood vessels in diabetic patients, due to the presence of the compound called ‘sulforaphane’. As per research published by the journal Science Translational Medicine, sulforaphane produces enzymes which protect blood vessels and reduce the number of molecules that can damage cells.
