Reasons to eat more broccoli

Broccoli is probably my favourite vegetable, it tastes great and contains a whole host of health benefits. As well as being high in fibre and helping to prevent arthritis, this versatile vegetable helps protect the heart cells from damage. If this is not enough to convince you, take a looks at some of the other benefits below.

Environmental protection
Helps fight toxins present in air pollution we are exposed to on a daily basis, bit like your own environmental protective suit, but without the downside of causing wide spread panic if worn in public.

Strong swimmers
Leads to improved fertility and makes you last longer, enough said really.

Boost recovery
Helps minimise delayed onset muscle soreness with a dose of Vitamin C. Meaning you won’t be walking with a limp days after exercise.

Help kick cancer’s arse
Helps to reduce the risk of prostate cancer.

Grey matters
The magnesium present in broccoli helps preserve memory, so it should boosting performance at work and stop you forgetting important dates.  More day-to-day occurrences can also benefit, such as remembering where you left the car keys or the kids… 🙂

Oh and they look like trees in the distance…
Managed to convince my kids to eat broccoli by telling them this, the downside is they now play with their food making very artistic ‘landscapes’ on the dining table.
