Cauliflower

CauliflowerCauliflower is chalk full of beneficial nutrients. The nutritional profile includes large amounts of vitamin C. Also present is folate, dietary fiber, B6, Tryptophan, manganese, omega 3 fatty acid, B5, potassium, phosphorus, B2, B1, magnesium and B3. But cauliflower offers much more. It contains glucosinolates and thiocyanates (sulforaphane and isothiocyanate) that increase the liver’s ability to neutralize potentially toxic substances. Many enzymes in cauliflower also help with detox processes, glutathione transferase, glucuronosyl transferase and quinine reductase. Sulforaphane is known to trigger the liver to produce enzymes that detox cancer causing chemicals. In research done at John Hopkins University in Baltimore, sulforaphane lowered the occurrence of breast cancer tumors in lab animals by almost 40%. Toxins that would normally damage the cells, that would then turn cancerous, are swept out of the system by sulfurophane, preventing tumors before they begin. Also present in cauliflower is indole-3-carbinol or I3C which lowers the chances of tumor growth.
