Green cabbage contains a lot of calcium (200mg / 100g) and is therefore highly valued among vegetables for the health of our bones.
Among vegetables is the one that has the most protein (about 4g / 100g).
Only 100 g of green cabbage cover the recommended daily needs of vitamins A, C and K. Vitamin C supports the detoxification of the body and strengthens our immune system. Vitamin A is good for the skin, eyes and helps the body with healing processes.
Vitamin K helps transport calcium to bones and thus decreases the risk of osteoporosis.
The phytochemicals it contains are anti-inflammatory and regulate blood pressure.
Other phytochemicals help fight cancer cells. In this case it is important to consume them raw or in juices since most of the phytochemicals are not resistant to heat.
Another component to highlight is chlorophyll. It is also anti-inflammatory and has been proven to help prevent dementia and diabetes.
