Earlier this week on the blog, we discussed the importance of incorporating special, nutritious vegetables that look like tiny cabbages, the infamous Brussel Sprouts! Today on the blog, we will be discussing some amazing health benefits from another vegetable from the cruciferous family, cabbage. One of the best ways you can incorporate this vegetable into your diet is through the popular German dish, sauerkraut, since cabbage is the core ingredient. 

Sauerkraut is usually made using salt and a mixture of other spices to give it more flavor, but the foundational piece of the cabbage gives your gut health an extra boost due to its many probiotic strains. In addition to sauerkraut, cabbage can also be used in salads and soups as well.

Cabbage contains some of the most powerful antioxidants, such as lutein, zeaxanthin, thiocyanates and sulforaphane. Research has shown that these compounds may help lower your risk of several types of cancer and manage healthy cholesterol levels. Cabbage is also extremely rich in vitamin K, which helps limit neuronal damage in your brain, lowering your risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

When cabbage is fermented, which is the case in sauerkraut, your microbiome will get the beneficial bacteria it needs. The benefits of these probiotics include:

·       Immune system enhancement

·       Reduced risk of bacterial infections

·       Reduced instances of constipation or diarrhea

·       Improvement with PMS symptoms

·       Improved mental health, mood control, and behavior

As always, we recommend you purchase your veggies in the organic aisle of the grocery store when shopping for your food. This helps minimize ingesting unnecessary toxins and other chemicals, such pesticides.

Testimonial

Dr. Wipperman is friendly, knowledgeable and really cares about your health. The excellent information he has to share about your spinal health is more than you might expect! His staff is warm and friendly, and really helpful. While I started seeing Dr. Wipperman for one specific problem, over the course of my care, I am truly seeing the benefits to my overall health. I highly recommend Ballas Chiropractic!
