Integrative medical experts will recommend to their cancer patients eating 3-5 servings a week of cruciferous vegetables such broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, kale, cabbage, and bock choy. These super veggies are not just rich in nutrients but also possess health promoting compounds called phytochemicals, glucosinolates and antioxidants, as well as vitamins, minerals, and good fiber. They also help fight inflammation which is key to protecting the body from infection.
Another super star that you can grow at home and easily add to your salads, meals and green drinks is broccoli sprouts. According to researchers from Ohio State University and John Hopkins University, these sprouts contain a phytochemical called sulforaphane with 50 times the cancer busting power of mature broccoli. This baby vegetable also helps the body detoxify, which is so important as we seek to release toxins from our system. They even contain digestive enzymes of their own to help with absorption.
Sprouts can be easily refrigerated and will keep for several days.
