Beneficial Properties of Cauliflower


Cauliflower contains good amounts of many essential B-complex vitamins such as folates, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), thiamin (vitamin B1), niacin (B3) as well as a good amount
 of vitamin K.

It also contains several anti cancer phyto-chemicals like sulforaphane and plant sterols such as indole-3-carbinol which appears to function as an anti-estrogen agent.

Together these compounds have proven benefits against prostate, breast, cervical, colon, and ovarian cancers.
