Cabbage helps lose weight and boost immunity : In addition to weight loss thanks to its abundant fiber, cabbage also has the ability to strengthen the immune system and regulate blood pressure.

Dr Subhash S Markande, traditional Hindu medicine consultant at Ayurveda, CGH Earth, said cabbage is rich in fiber and water, so it can prevent constipation and maintain a healthy intestine.

Cabbage also belongs to the cruciferous family, containing many antioxidants, vitamins, and compounds that inhibit and clean carcinogens. In addition, it also helps with weight loss, helps clean the digestive system, strengthens the immune system and reduces cholesterol levels in the blood.

Besides, cabbage is an ideal diet food. According to many studies, in 100 g of cabbage there are only about 25 calories. Furthermore, this vegetable provides a longer lasting feeling of fullness thanks to its abundant fiber, reducing appetite and helping people avoid binge eating. Fiber binds with nutrients, binds to acids in the intestines and passes through the stool, pulling cholesterol out instead of letting it absorb into the bloodstream.

In addition, Dr. Markande also said that cabbage is the best food to enhance immunity because this vegetable contains rich amounts of vitamin C.

The sulfur-containing compound sulforaphane sometimes makes cabbage taste bitter, but can inhibit cancer cell growth. Anthocyanins, antioxidants in red cabbage, slow down the formation and even kill already formed cancer cells. Glutamine, an amino acid found in cabbage, is a powerful anti-inflammatory.
