Did You Know? Broccoli is Amazing!

Like other cruciferous vegetables, broccoli contains phytonutrients which have significant anti-cancer effects, namely indole-3-carbinol. Research on indole-3-carbinol shows this compound helps to deactivate cancer causing cells, while at the same time increasing cancer protective cells.

Indole-3-carbinol has been shown to suppress not only breast tumor cell growth, but also cancer cell metastasis (the movement of cancerous cells to other parts of the body).

All of this is done by a potent detoxification process that occurs as the enzymes of our bodies come into balance and can then disarm free radicals and toxins including cancer causing cells. Knowing this, how could you not eat broccoli?

Be Well,
