There are many health benefits of cauliflower. Cauliflower, a member of the cruciferous family, lacks the green chlorophyll found in other vegetables of this class, including broccoli, cabbage and kale, because the florets are shielded from the sun by the plant’s leaves during growth. Regardless, the nutritional health benefits of cauliflower are significant. Its nutrients help strengthen the immune system and protect against the development of cancer. Cauliflower is an excellent source of folate and vitamin C; just three raw florets provide 67 percent of the Daily Value (DV). That’s more than some citrus fruits. A strong immune system is essential for staving off everything from the common cold to heart disease. By eating foods rich in the antioxidant nutrients vitamins C, E, beta-carotene and selenium, you are stacking the deck against illness in your favor. Although broccoli may get more attention for its health benefits, cauliflower is no slouch either. It has nutrients that help fight cancer in two ways, they prevent enzymes from activating cancer-causing agents in the body and they increase the body’s production of enzymes that clean toxins and carcinogens out of the system before they can damage cells. On top of all that, cauliflower can also lower cholesterol and decrease your chances of getting a tumor.
