Cabbage is an unsung superfood that is not only a great source of vitamins, but it is also a great vegetable to help detox your body after a heavy month of partying and festivities over Christmas.
Nutritionist Juliette Bryant says, “Cabbage a superfood? You bet! Kale and broccoli get a lot of publicity and I would say that cabbage is just as good for you. It is an excellent source of vitamins and essential minerals. Cabbage juice is an ancient remedy for rejuvenation and healing and cabbages have the highest level of beneficial bacteria of any vegetable. The high levels of glucosinolates flush out your system, support the liver and helps lower cholesterol. Cabbage is an excellent source of L-glutamine, which increases the health of the gut mucosa.”
