Cruciferous vegetables and brain health


CRUCIFEROUS VEGETABLES (and dark leafy greens) have a lot of brain health benefits.

.

Cruciferous vegetables in general are : anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, neuroprotective, antifungal and hypoglycaemic.

.

🥦

.

Cruciferous vegetables are great source of vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, folate, selenium, glucosinolates, flavonoids, polyphenols.

.

Glucosinolates are metabolic substrates for several gut bacteria species. Diet high in cruciferous vegetables can significantly change gut bacterial composition.

.

One study says that older women have less cognitive decline in memory if they are eating foods like broccoli, cabbage, kale.🥦

.

Low levels of folate might increase the risk of depression, that’s why eating folate-rich cruciferous vegetables may be protective.

.

Remember, the darker and more colourful the vegetables are, the higher is their antioxidant capacity.

.

Example:

➡️kale > iceberg lettuce

➡️red cabbage > white cabbage

.

⚠️Be careful with too high intake of raw cruciferous vegetables if you suffer for hyperthyroidism.⚠️
