Do you want to protect your DNA? In this day and age of being bombarded with engineered foods, chemtrails and radiation, who wouldn’t want to protect their DNA?
Consider adding Brussels Sprouts to your diet, because a recent study reveals that it protects DNA. There are compounds in Brussels Sprouts that improve the stability of the DNA molecule.
Brussels Sprouts protect DNA by blocking the enzyme that causes DNA instability. Its name is sulphotransferase. Thus it has been suggested by nutritionists, that you make them a part of your diet.
And I might add, it lowers cholesterol, giving garlic competition. Fortunately, there is more to Brussels Sprouts than DNA protection or its ability to lower cholesterol. For example, there are 80 nutrients found in Brussels Sprouts. Vitamin K, C A, folate, manganese, B6, iron, B1, copper and potassium are just a few. There are simply too many to name.
What is even more fascinating is that it works hand in hand with the body’s detox system. The antioxydant portion assists with detoxification of the human body. Not only that, but Brussels Sprouts are full of phytonutrients. Therefore, they protect us against cancer. Additionally, Brussels Sprouts help thyroid function. Few vegetables deliver thyroid function ease.
Some do not like the way it smells when cooked. But this only happens if it is overcooked, just like its cousin, broccoli. The key is to steam it. This way you get the most benefit nutritionally. Plus the cholesterol reduction reaches the apex when Brussels Sprouts are steamed. Its vitamin C content is amazingly large. There are people who argue about which is more nutrient rich, vegetables or fruits. Brussels Sprouts have 128% vitamin C. The fiber content is off the chain.
Another favorable aspect of Brussels Sprouts are its ability to reduce inflammation. Inflammation can be the result of sleeplessness or bad health habits. However, inflammation of any type can be ameliorated by Brussels Sprouts. So if you suffer from insomnia, it is a good idea to stock up on Brussels Sprouts, not so that you can sleep, but so that you can protect yourself against inflammation. Not only that, but Brussels Sprouts are one of the richest sources of vitamin K. Vitamin K helps reduce inflammation. But wait, there is more good news, Brussels Sprouts are a source of omega 3 fatty acid.
All these nutrients combined suggests that Brussels Sprouts is great for fighting metabolic disease. I love Brussels Sprouts and have added it to my diet.
