Benefits of Brussel
Phytochemicals and Antioxidants in Brussels Sprouts Juice
Like cabbage and broccoli, Brussels sprouts have an impressive array of cancer fighting phytochemicals, which include glucosinolates. Research has been conducted in the Netherlands on how Brussels sprouts are able to protect from DNA damage. Five men were fed 10 ounces of Brussels sprouts daily while another group of five men ate a diet that was free of any cruciferous vegetables. After 3 weeks, the two groups were compared, and the men who ate a diet including Brussels sprouts measured a 28% reduction in DNA damage. Less DNA damage means a lower chance of developing cancerous cells.
