I LOVE cabbage! And I eat cabbage in all the forms I can think of: chips, ice cream, in salads, and in smoothies.
Do you know the benefits of cabbage for your hormonal health?
Vegetables belonging to the cruciferous family contain herbals called isothiocyaniner and indoles.
These herbals help the body break down estrogens and oestrogen-like chemicals so that they become harmless substances that can be excreted through the intestinal tract.
When estrogens decompose properly, it reduces the risk of developing estrogen-sensitive cancers. Isothiocyanates are also found in mustard, cress, horseradish and radishes.
The family of cruciferous vegetables also counts broccoli, Brussels sprouts, red cabbage, white cabbage, cauliflower, cabbage and many other sorts from the cabbage family.
