The wonders of brocolli

I love brocolli. And recent studies prove that this green vegetable can reverse the damage caused by diabetes to our heart vessels.

“Eating broccoli could reverse the damage caused by diabetes to heart blood vessels, research suggests. A University of Warwick team believe the key is a compound found in the vegetable, called sulforaphane. It encourages production of enzymes which protect the blood vessels, and a reduction in high levels of molecules which cause significant cell damage. Brassica vegetables such as broccoli have previously been linked to a lower risk of heart attacks and strokes.” More from the BBC News Site.
