Brussel sprouts are an incredibly nutritious vegetable that are rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins C, A, and E, and alkalizing minerals such as calcium, iron, and manganese. They are also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin K which are essential for proper brain and nerve function and are vital for aiding cognitive issues such as brain fog, memory loss, lack of concentration, ADD, ADHD, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Brussel sprouts are also known to help stabilize the DNA within white blood cells which creates a stronger, more resilient immune system. Brussel sprouts also contain powerful anti-cancer compounds which are shown to particularly help fight and prevent colon, breast, prostate, lung, bladder, liver, endometrial, and ovarian cancer.
They can help stimulate the kidneys to release more water, which can reduce bloat and edema and make it easier for dislodged fatty wastes to be flushed out of the body. Brussel sprouts are also good for stimulating sluggish glands and for promoting a cleaning effect on adipose cells and tissues making it an ideal weight loss food. Brussel sprouts are a star ingredient in the Liver Cleanse in my book Liver Rescue because they are so incredible at purifying the liver.
They contain high amounts of glucosinolates which can significantly reduce inflammation and is excellent for prevention and relief from rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, lupus, strokes, heart attacks, arteriosclerosis, and bursitis. Brussel sprouts are excellent for helping to lower cholesterol, prevent constipation, stop overeating, and decrease H.pylori in the digestive tract.
To obtain the most health benefits from brussel sprouts, consider eating them raw (they can also be juiced) or steamed until soft. Try making a delicious salad with chopped romaine, arugula, tomato, avocado, onion, steamed brussels sprouts, fresh lemon juice and minced garlic. It is a nutritious and satisfying dish that will nourish your body, mind, and soul.
