MANILA, Philippines–The power of some foods could guarantee immunity from many lifestyle diseases.
It’s not just the apple packed with quercetin (powerful ) that can protect your heart from disease. Broccoli is a power vegetable that may also help keep cancer at bay.
Broccoli contains phytochemicals (phyto—plant) and nutrients that help strengthen the immune system and guarantee bone health.
A member of the cabbage family (including watercress, cauliflower, mustard, horseradish, turnip, Brussels sprouts), the name broccoli comes from the Latin word brachium meaning strong branch, referring to its main stem and multiple branches. Dubbed the “five fingers of Jupiter” by Roman farmers, this vegetable has ancient beginnings.
