HE A L T H B E NE F I T S Red Cabbage

Sometimes hailed as red kraut or purple cabbage, nutrient-rich red cabbage is good for you no matter what you choose to call it. Red cabbage may appear more red or purple in hue owing to the pH level of the soil it’s grown in. Interestingly, when cooked, this cabbage will turn blue. In spite of its color-wonderful nature, it is more than just a pretty plant. This cabbage, which stores much easier and longer than its white counterparts, is associated with many spectacular health benefits. Eating red cabbage as part of your weekly diet will benefit your health in the following ways.

1. Improve Digestion

One of the most important reasons to add more red cabbage to your diet is because it has the power to improve your digestion and prevent constipation. You might have imagined that your mother added tons of attractive red cabbage to dinner salads, but she might have known about this vegetable’s age-old ability to keep you regular. Red cabbage is loaded with dietary fiber. This fiber is essential for maintaining your digestive tract functioning in optimum condition. You can add red cabbage to your salads or enjoy a cup of coleslaw to enjoy its digestive health benefits.

2. Prevent Cancer

Uber-rich in antioxidant compounds, red cabbage is a well-known vegetable that has cancer-fighting potential. The antioxidants in red cabbage include anthocyanins and indoles, which do an excellent job of neutralizing free radicals, the unwanted harbingers of disease. Free radicals can occur in our body for many reasons, merely as the result of cellular functions. On the other hand, when their numbers rise, the body can become vulnerable to disease. Things like air pollution and smoking can lead to an unhealthy rise in the presence of free radicals. Antioxidants render free radicals powerless to wreak havoc in our bodies.
3. Keep Your Heart Healthy
Along with its many nutrients, red cabbage contains potassium, which is vital to promoting a regular, healthy heartbeat. Additionally, the fiber in red cabbage helps reduce unhealthy levels of bad LDL cholesterol that can cause heart disease. Red cabbage’s antioxidants also help maintain heart health. If you are concerned about developing heart disease or if it runs in your family, be sure to eat a heart-healthy diet that includes antioxidant-rich foods like red cabbage.

4. Feel Full, Lose Weight

Red cabbage is low in calories, but it can leave a person feeling quite satisfied after eating it. If you’re dieting, you’re likely looking to eat low-calorie foods that are low in fat and high in nutrients. After eating red cabbage, you’ll be less inclined to indulge in other less healthy snacks. Even if you aren’t dieting, eating red cabbage will help you keep your weight maintained. Enjoy braised red cabbage as a side dish or eat it pickled between meals.

5. Brain Boost

Who wouldn’t love a brain boost now and then? When you’re feeling mentally dull, add some red cabbage to your meals. Red cabbage contains magnesium and manganese. These nutrients contribute to healthy brain cells as well as optimum nerve function. When your brain is functioning optimally, you’ll feel improved energy and better focus. Top your lunches with sprinklings of red cabbage to give your brain a healthy boost.

6. Eye Protection

Red cabbage is rich in vitamin A, a nutrient that supports optimum eye health. Eating red cabbage may help you protect your eye health by preventing cataracts as well as macular degeneration. As we age, it becomes increasingly important to eat foods that have beta-carotene or contain vitamin A, which can be converted to beta-carotene, to promote good eye health. Red cabbage also contains many other nutrients that can help keep your vision at its best.

7. Detox Your Blood

A diet rich in red cabbage can lead to reduced toxin levels in your blood. Red cabbage has natural detoxification properties.

You can add red cabbage to your detox juices or simply enjoy it in salads or stir-fries.

8. Boost Your Immune System

Don’t wait for cold and flu season to give your immune system a boost. Among its many nutrients is a healthy dose of vitamin C. This vitamin, also known as ascorbic acid, is an essential antioxidant. It has the power to stimulate our body’s production of white blood cells. These blood cells act as your immune system’s first line of defense. A staple in many Eastern European countries where winters can be severe, red cabbage is a great food to enjoy in the winter months when your immune system can use some extra support.

9. Combat Arthritis Inflammation

People who have arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are not strangers to joint pain caused by inflammation. Because of its anti-inflammation properties, eating red cabbage on a regular basis can help you if you suffer from these conditions.

Add some shredded red cabbage to your next sandwich to enjoy its anti-inflammatory benefits.

10. Show off Your Gorgeous Mane of Hair

Consequently, the hair appears more shiny and glossy when it has the vitamins it needs for optimum health.
