Cabbage is absolutely loaded with goodness. I eat red, white, and savoy/Chinese cabbage regularly to reap the multitude of health benefits. Cabbage contains powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It's wonderful for heart health, helping to reduce cholesterol by binding bile acids in the intestine. Toxins pass them out of our bodies in a bowel movement rather than emulsifying in our liver. The lactic acid in cabbage also acts as a potent colon cleanser.
Cabbage also contains fabulous phytonutrients that help protect the body from free radical damage, and the detox dynamo compound sulforaphane, which increases the production of antioxidant and detoxification enzymes, and stimulates the production of glutathione for liver cleansing.
Rich in iron and sulfur, cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin C, a good source of vitamin A, making it a great muscle builder and blood cleanser. It is also wonderful for skin and eye health.
Cabbage juice, in particular, is a magical elixir that helps to heal all kinds of ailments. The Romans and Greeks used to drink raw cabbage juice to relieve sore and infected eyes. It can also help reduce headaches, and respiratory complaints such as asthma and bronchitis. Really effective for treating fungus infections, cabbage juice is also a brilliant digestive aid, fostering the proliferation of healthy bacteria in the stomach, preventing stomach ulcers.
