Benefits of Green vegetables
I know most children don’t eat or want to eat greens and so do most men! Sad but true!! However, looking after your health especially during these compromised times had better include these green compounds too safeguard all Immunity going forward.
Let’s look at Broccoli. For instance, a simple example, in broccoli, glucosinolate, produces a metabolite called sulforaphane that is responsible for many of broccoli’s health-promoting properties. Sulforaphane has been shown to have anti-diabetic and antimicrobial properties, and also kills cancer stem cells, which strikes to the heart of tumour malignancy. It can also significantly improve your blood pressure and kidney function, among other benefits. Brilliant especially for male health!! And broccoli in its crunchy fresh format in a salad tops all tastes that I can promise you…
Let’s look at Sprouts – Another Way to Increase Your Intake of Glucoraphanin. Small quantities of fresh sprouts actually contain as much cancer protection as larger amounts of the mature vegetable. Sprouts can contain up to 100 times more enzymes than raw fruits and vegetables, allowing your body to extract more vitamins, minerals, amino acids and essential fats from the foods you eat. Both the quality of the protein and the fibre content of beans, nuts, seeds and grains improves when sprouted. The content of vitamins and essential fatty acids also increase dramatically during the sprouting process. For example, depending on the sprout, the nutrient content can increase as much as 30 times the original value within just a few days of sprouting. Sunflower seed and pea sprouts tend to top the list of all the seeds that you can sprout and are typically each about 30 times more nutritious than organic vegetables you can even harvest in your backyard garden. During sprouting, minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, bind to protein, making them more bioavailable.
Let’s look at Peas – Peas May Fight Cancer, Inflammation, Diabetes and More. Peas, a type of legume, are also packed with some of nature’s most potent disease-fighting compounds, including a polyphenol called Coumestrol. Research has shown that those with the highest intakes of Coumestrol and other natural plant chemicals called polyphenols had a 50 percent lower risk of stomach cancer. Other phytonutrients in peas, including saponins, phenolic acids like ferulic and caffeic acid, and flavanols like catechin and epicatechin, have also been shown to offer powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, and may be responsible for peas’ beneficial impact on diabetes. Green peas are also unique in their relatively large amounts of protein and fibre, which may help with blood sugar regulation. Pea Sprouts Are Also a Phenomenal Superfood
Tossing all of these fresh into a salad serves the whole family well for the good health of all, however, if there is resistance there is always the green smoothie as a nice to have with some fruit, ice, water and or juice too ensure the family health is maintained this holiday:
