It is true that broccoli is considered to be one of the healthiest foods, but its main advantage is its contribution to fight overweight and obesity.
Obesity represents the most important risk factor for a series of severe disorders as type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, cardiovascular diseases (CVD), hypertension, certain cancers, apnea/sleep-disorder breathing, osteoarthritis and infertility among others.
It is often accompanied by an everyday bigger risk of mortality and impairments because of associated conditions. The quality of life is always poor for a fat or even over weighted person.
Therefore, the main advantages that broccoli and other vegetables can offer to you are those derived from weight loss.
Anyway, broccoli has important anti-inflammatory and antioxidants properties. It is rich in Vitamin K, Vitamin C, chromium and folate, apart from other less concentrated Vitamins and nutrients.
The most recommended method for cooking the broccoli is quick steaming. Or its equivalent broccoli microwave. It is exposed only a few minutes to the heat. The method preserves most of its vitamins.
Don’t use broccoli as an alibi. The fact of eating a few servings of broccoli microwave does not allow you to engulf a less convenient and healthy junk stuff (I am not going to call them “food”).
