What are the nutritional benefits of Brussels sprouts?
Brussels sprouts are rich in many valuable nutrients. They are an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K. They are a very good source of folate, carotenoids, manganese, fiber, potassium, vitamin B6 and thiamine and a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, iron, phosphorus, protein, molybdenum, magnesium, riboflavin, vitamin E, calcium, and niacin. In addition to these nutrients, Brussels sprouts contain numerous disease-fighting phytochemicals including sulforaphane, indoles, glucosinolates, isothiocynates, coumarins, dithiolthiones, and phenols. Compounds in Brussels sprouts block the activity of sulphotransferase enzymes that can attack the DNA within white blood cells. Antioxidants in Brussels sprouts include Vitamins C, E, and A, as well as manganese. Flavonoid antioxidants like isorhamnetin, quercitin, and kaempferol also protect against oxidative stress on cells. Glucosinolates in Brussels sprouts form detox-activating isothiocyanates, which fight against cancer, including bladder, breast, colon, lung, prostate, and ovarian cancer. The cancer protection we get from Brussels sprouts is largely related to four specific glucosinolates found in this cruciferous vegetable: glucoraphanin, glucobrassicin, sinigrin, and gluconasturtiian. Research has shown that Brussels sprouts offer these cancer-preventive components in special combination. Glucobrassicin, a glucosinolate abundant in Brussels sprouts, is converted to indole-3-carbinol (ITC), and fights inflammation on a genetic level. One and a half cups of Brussels sprouts contain about 430 milligrams of omega-3 fatty acids (about ⅓ of the daily recommended amount) that are an essential part of anti-inflammatory messaging molecules. The isothiocyanate sulforaphane not only triggers anti-inflammatory activity in the cardiovascular system, but may also prevent and even possibly help reverse blood vessel damage. By regulating inflammation within the body, Brussels sprouts can fight against the onset of heart attacks, ischemic heart disease, and arteriosclerosis. Brussels sprouts can help decrease the risk of many inflammation-mediated diseases such as arthritis, obesity, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. By decreasing chronic inflammation, Brussels sprouts maintain the flexibility of the blood vessels and the blood flow to essential organs of the body. The sulforaphane also protects your stomach lining by obstructing the overgrowth of Helicobacter pylori, a bacteria that can lead to gastric ulcers and cancer. Brussels sprouts are especially high in vitamin K, which promotes healthy bones, prevents osteoporosis, prevents calcification of the body's tissues, serves as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, and is essential for proper brain and nerve function. The vitamin C in Brussels sprouts ensures a healthy immune system, lowers blood pressure, fights lead toxicity, combats cataracts, enhances the absorption of iron from the intestine, and serves as a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals and protects against the common cold, anemia, atherosclerosis, heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Brussels sprouts also contain carotenoids, which boost immunity, maintain healthy bones and teeth, prevent urinary stones, and are essential to reproductive organs. The carotenoids in Brussels sprouts form retinal, the light-absorbing molecule that is essential for both low-light and color vision, and protects eyes against cataracts and macular degeneration. One cup of Brussels sprouts contains a almost 25% of the your daily folate and the health benefits associated with it.
