lyme symptoms:  broccoli


Posted July 13, 2012 Broccoli: A Nutritional Powerhouse.  I eat it raw by the handful! Or I dip it in olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Great!

Broccoli—this cruciferous veggie is a nutritional powerhouse.  For reasons to pile up on the broccoli, check out the nutrition facts below:

  • Calcium. With approximately 60 milligrams per cup, broccoli is a great plant source for calcium, but this is important for more than just strong bones. Some studies have found that calcium might play a part in controlling high blood pressure and may help prevent certain types of cancer.  Lyme and chronic disease sufferers need all the minerals they can get!
  • Vitamin C. Broccoli is loaded with Vitamin C.  Just one cup contains 135 percent of your daily requirement. In fact, broccoli has the highest concentration of Vitamin C of all the cruciferous vegetables. Vitamin C is SO important for healing and your immune system.  Also helps you absorb iron.
  • Protein. Broccoli has four grams of protein per cup. That probably doesn’t seem like much, but look at it this way: calorie for calorie, broccoli contains more protein than steak.  Best idea is to add a nice serving of broccoli to your grass fed, organic steak!  To your good health!
