Broc­coli revs the liver

First For Women - - Nutrition -

Plant com­pounds in broc­coli called glu­cosi­no­lates help the liver con­vert pol­lu­tants, ex­cess hor­mones and other harm­ful sub­stances into water-sol­u­ble mol­e­cules that can be elim­i­nated quickly. The ef­fect is so pow­er­ful that sci­en­tists in Spain found that eat­ing 4 cups of broc­coli weekly in­creased energy by 33 per­cent for 80 per­cent of women in as lit­tle as a week.
