Benefits of Broccoli in your Diet

Broccoli Whether you like broccoli or not, there are many recent studies, one in particular by researchers at the University of Connecticut that state eating broccoli can actual improve your heart’s health. A recent study was done on rats regarding broccoli and its health benefits in relation to the heart and the results were quite encouraging. The scientists brewed the broccoli into a
liquid extract and fed it to the rats, on top of their daily diet for one month. In comparison they fed another batch of rats plain water in addition to their daily diet and watched the results of the heart after just one month.

After 30 days of feeding the rats broccoli extract and extra water on top of their regular rat chow diets the scientists analyzed their heart health. Some of the tests which were experienced were quite similar to a heart attack as they deprived the heart of oxygen. The tests results showed that the rats that had taken the broccoli extract over the water had three major heart benefits compared to the other group of rats. They experienced a better pumping ability, less heart damage during the oxygen deprivation test and higher levels of heart health chemicals during the oxygen deprivation tests. These are three very large benefits from a simple broccoli extract for only 30 days.

Broccoli’s key nutrients include selenium and sulforaphane, which has been studied in the past and may also have benefits in regards to cancer treatments and prevention as well. Broccoli is a simple vegetable, which provides many different benefits when eaten on a regular basis. The only one most people are familiar with is its fiber content but its advantages do not end here. With studies like this showing the effects of broccoli can have on your heart, many people can prevent heart diseases and attacks in their future simply by integrating broccoli into their diets on a regular basis.

Avoid overcooking broccoli as this can destroy its beneficial nutrient content. Another important tip to remember is that most vegetables should be consumed fully. Broccoli holds the most potent cancer-fighting properties of all the cruciferous vegetables so therefore it should be consumed on a daily basis if possible and should also be a part of any prevention method used to protect against disease.

With natural remedies and solutions such as a simple vegetable many people are able to reduce their risk of developing any future heart problems when they are younger simply by including broccoli as part of an overall healthy lifestyle. With so many different health benefits from one vegetable it is easy to see why so many people are choosing the natural remedies and prevention methods for their heart health.
