Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable that has wildly beneficial attributes. One of the most notable things about them are their extremely high vitamin levels, but the most interesting of these are its vitamin C and folate amounts. It is well known how amazing vitamin C can be for the body, because it helps with the immune system, and provides the body with an energy boost, but folate, or vitamin B is important because it’s part of what helps cells reproduce themselves. Without that ability, your body wouldn’t be able to repair cells or replace them with new ones. Getting lots of broccoli can help you to heal faster and it’s an easy way to get a balanced meal without having to eat a lot of different foods.
