Last weekend I stayed at Eastern Island and escaped with my wife to a local restaurant to try a local broccoli recipe, which I will bring you today.
Before anything else I need to highlight the fact that Broccoli is a vegetable that has many beneficial properties for health, as it is rich in nutrients such as vitamins B, C, K, iron, magnesium, zinc, vegetable proteins, among others, it is a jewel of gastronomy and a Superfood! The preparation that I bring you is very easy and is an ideal entree for any occasion.
Detoxifies our body with this food since Broccoli contains a unique combination of three phytonutrients that have great detoxifying power. It is a particularly rich source of a flavonoid called kaempferol, which helps fight allergies and inflammation.
Broccoli is also magnificent for the nervous system because of its high content of potassium. Regulates blood pressure due to the presence of magnesium, calcium, and potassium.
Among all cruciferous vegetables, broccoli stands out as the most concentrated source of vitamin C and flavonoids. Other potent antioxidants are found in broccoli such as lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene that act against the aging of cells. It is useful for repairing skin damage.
Reduces cholesterol, broccoli stands out as an excellent weapon for lowering cholesterol levels. The fiber that contains broccoli favors the effect of bile acids in the digestive tract, and the result is a decrease in cholesterol levels. Lutein can also reduce or prevent thickening of the arteries, thus fighting heart disease and stroke. Vitamin B6 and folic acid present in broccoli also minimize the risk of arteriosclerosis, myocardial infarction, and stroke.
