broccoli contains various bioactive compounds that have been shown to reduce inflammation in your body’s tissues.
It’s theorized that multiple compounds work synergistically to support this effect, though some seem to work individually as well.
Kaempferol, a flavonoid in broccoli, demonstrates strong anti-inflammatory capacity in both animal and test-tube studies.
Aids in Digestion
A study was carried out by Gary Perdew, the John T. and Paige S. Smith Professor inSciences, Penn State, USA, to test if broccoli is helpful in maintaining gut health. As part of the study, a group of mice was administered broccoli as part of their regular diet and it was seen that they were better able to tolerate their digestive issues such as colitis and leaky gut in comparison to those that were not given the green vegetable. It was thus concluded that the fiber content in broccoli played a vital role in regulating digestion. Along with kaempferol, it also tends to keep the stomach lining healthy and helps maintain healthy bacteria levels in the intestines.
