Superfood: cabbage

Leave a comment

In the vegetable world, the Brassica genus reigns supreme, and the cabbage is the most impressive of the lot. Brassica vegetables (including broccoli, bok choy) contain compounds called indoles, which have been shown to reduce the risk of cancer dramatically.

Eating cabbage more than once a week cut men’s colon cancer odds by 66 percent. Cabbage also stimulates the immune system, kills bacteria and viruses, and is a good blood purifier.

If you go for the red variety, you’ll also get a healthy dose of anthocyanins (the same pigment molecules that make blueberries blue), another powerful antioxidant with an anticancer punch.
