More Benefits of Cabbages Besides Helping Lose Weight

1

Prevent Cancer

Cabbage is a member of the Brassica family. It has powerful anti-oxidant properties that can fight the free radicals that bombard our bodies every day. Besides, cabbage contains anti-cancer things like lupeol, sinigin, and sulphoraphane.

2

Protect the Bones

Since cabbage contains vast amounts of calcium, magnesium and potassium which are all needed for bone growth, the odds of obtaining osteoporosis is small if you often eat cabbages.

3

Be a Great Brain Food

The vitamin K and anthocyanins in cabbage can help promote a healthier brain function as well as a healthier concentration. The vitamin K also helps to create or produce sphingolipids, which in turn help the myelin sheath around the brain nerves.

4

Be Good to the Eyes

Beta-carotene, often found in carrots, is also found in cabbages in large amount. Beta-carotene helps to prevent the early onset of cataracts as well as helping in prevention of macular degeneration.

5

Help the Body Detoxify

Cabbage has a high content of both vitamin C and sulphur that can help in bodily detoxification. It can help purify the blood by removing free radicals, which we have seen are cancer-makers and uric acid which may cause gout.
