Broccoli is rich in sulforaphane and isothiocyanates which reduces the risk of cancer. The indol-3-carbinol found in broccoli helps to balance women’s hormones.  It is also loaded in vitamins K, C, folate, and minerals such as calcium.

It’s no wonder that the USDA recommends that we eat 3-5 cups of veggies each day!!
