Do you know that cauliflower is a vegetable that needs to be added to your regular diet? It is a vegetable that contains enough minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and other nutrients for your body. It is a good source of proteins, vitamin K, vitamin B, vitamin C, riboflavin, fiber, magnesium, phosphorus, thiamin, folate, potassium and manganese.
The sulforaphane present in cauliflower is beneficial to kill cancer stems that slow down tumour growth. You can fight various types of cancer including that of the bladder, breast, colon, prostrate and ovary with cauliflower intake. This sulforaphane also helps in improving blood pressure and functioning of the kidney.
