Broccoli

Parents always want their kids to eat broccoli. Remember how unhappy we felt every time we had the funny looking veggie in our kid’s dinner plate?

Well, there’s a reason parents want their kids to eat broccoli. This vegetable from the cabbage family contains multiple nutrients and is a great source of vitamins and minerals.

Broccoli is high in vitamin C and soluble fiber, providing potent anti-cancer properties including diindolymthane and selenium.

These nutrients can build up the immune system supporting anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-cancer activity and that’s a great reason to add broccoli to your diet. However, more benefits are still been discovered.

A recent study by the Health Sciences Institute – HSI – has found a few more benefits from eating broccoli.

Broccoli has a unique compound called sulforaphane which may reduce the symptoms of COPD – chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

COPD is a terrible debilitating disease which slowly deteriorated the respiratory system. Oxidative stress is a contributor in COPD and over time it becomes more and more difficult to breathe, as the airways get narrower from inflammation caused by toxins.

Broccoli supplements provide a high amount of antioxidants. The activation of a special ground of antioxidants can wipe out the toxins and ease the inflammations; therefore, breathing gets better and there’s less chance of infection.

Broccoli supplements may be an essential product to prevent and treat the development of COPD, the forth-leading cause of death in the United States.
