Cauliflower Power!


For about 20 years, we have known that many phytonutrients work as antioxidants to disarm free radicals before they can damage DNA, cell membranes and fat-containing molecules such as cholesterol.

Now, new research is revealing that the phytonutrients in cruciferous vegetables such cauliflower work at a much deeper level. These compounds actually signal our genes to increase productions of enzymes involved in detoxification, the cleansing process through which our bodies eliminate harmful compounds.

Recent studies also show that those eating the most cruciferous vegetables have a much lower risk of prostate, colorectal and lung cancer-even when compared to those who regularly eat other vegetables.
