Brussel Sprouts Eaters

When we have a chance to do grocery shopping along with my husband and baby we don't miss to buy brussel sprouts just because we all love it. It was my husband who first introduced this kind of vegetable to me. At first it smelled foul but then I develop an immunity to the smell and now I am loving it as well as my baby. Since we love eating brussel sprout might as well do my research on the benefits it can give to our body. Surprisingly, there are tons of health benefits it can offer to us.

Here are the health benefits shown in my search;

Cancer Protection from Special Sulfur-Containing Phytonutrients
-- Plant phytonutrients found in Brussels sprouts enhance the activity of the body's natural defense systems to protect against disease, including cancer.

Optimize Your Cells' Detoxification / Cleansing Ability
-- For about 20 years, we've 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.

For Healthy Skin and Immune Function, Think Brussels Sprouts
-- Brussels sprouts are an excellent source of vitamin C, the body's primary water-soluble antioxidant. Vitamin C supports immune function and the manufacture of collagen, a protein that forms the ground substance of body structures including the skin, connective tissue, cartilage, and tendons.

-- Fiber-rich Brussels Sprouts Support A Healthier Colon
-- Cardiovascular Benefits
-- Protection against Rheumatoid Arthritis
-- A Birth Defect Fighter
