Super Nutra Review

por Editoria RVQ (2019-01-14)

Many people tend only to eat the florets and leave the stems and leaves. Super NutraIf you like their bitter taste, the leaves are also good source of vitamin A, and if you also munch on the stems you get the added benefits of thiamine, riboflavin and niacin, in addition to the goodies found in the florets. If you stick to the florets, which make up most bags of frozen broccoli, then you'll get around 35% more beta-carotene than from fresh broccoli.Broccoli is also a rich source of chromium, an element which may work to aid the action of insulin in individuals with a slight glucose intolerance. It also contains sulforaphane which stimulates enzymes that are known to fight cancer, as well as promoting the beneficial actions of such friendly compounds as indoles and aromatic isothiocyanates which have been linked to better health in relation to cancer, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and high blood pressure.Another positive is that broccoli, along with onion, carrots and cabbage, contains calcium pectate (a pectin fibre) that binds to bile acids to hold more cholesterol in the liver, meaning less is released into the bloodstream.
