We all want to avoid diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s; recent studies show that by eating red cabbage can help. Cabbage is a part of the cruciferous family with other vegetables like broccoli, arugula and cauliflower. Cabbage can protect you from these health risks because it is packed with antioxidants and flavonoids that protect your body’s cells from damage done by free radicals. In addition to these benefits cabbage has been known to help with constipation, stomach ulcers and inflammation. This healthy vegetable is packed with vitamins, fiber, omega-3 oils, protein, even calcium.
All of the different types of cabbage (red, green, Savoy, Napa and bok choy) provide health benefits. You can enjoy raw cabbage immediately after washing it; just slice it up to add some tasty crunch to your salads.
