But before I highlight this information on cruciferous vegetables and cancer it’s important to identify which edible plants fall into this category. They are:
Green and Red Cabbage
My favorite is broccoli. And it is a good representative for the two key nutrients that have been clinically validated in their ability to fight cancer. They are:
DIM or 3,3′-diindolylmethane
Both of these ingredients have numerous studies that show how effective they are in killing cancer cells. Sulforaphane has shown promise in helping to reduce the risk for these cancers:
And DIM, that is found in broccoli, has show remarkable promise in resolving precancer cells that can lead to cervical cancer.
Sounds very promising. But there is a catch to these cruciferous vegetables and cancer. That catch is ingredient stability. Read More →
