Cabbage is a leafy green, red, or white biennial plant grown as an annual vegetable crop for its dense-leaved heads. This vegetable offers many health benefits. I would strongly recommend incorporating it into your diet. The following are several benefits of eating cabbage:
- Boosts Your Immunity:
Cabbage is said to boost your immunity because it contains a high source of vitamin C. Your immune system needs vitamin C in order to perform certain tasks. It is the key to the growth and maintenance of most of the tissues of your body, including collagen, which is needed for healthy connective tissue and wound healing. Raw cabbage can add a bit of vitamin C to your daily intake, but cooked cabbage has even more. Although cooking reduces the amount of vitamin C in any food,it also reduces the volume, so you’ll get more vitamin C per cup of cooked cabbage.
- Aids in Weight Loss:
Cabbage is a super food that needs to be added to your weight loss diet as this leafy vegetable is low in calories. Cabbage is high in fiber and helps to fill you up! It has no fat and provides plenty of nutritional value.
This crunchy vegetable is full of gut-friendly insoluble fiber, a type of carbohydrate that can’t be broken down in the intestines. Insoluble fiber helps keep the digestive system healthy by adding bulk to stools and promoting regular bowel movements.
