Meet my new favorite salad recipe: Raw broccoli with fried mushrooms and roasted seeds. This salad is easy to make and so nourishing!
Broccoli is an absolute superfood and contains many vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. With this raw broccoli salad, you are doing something really good for your body! Because we eat the broccoli raw without cooking it, all of the many vital substances and nutrients are retained.
Broccoli is high in vitamins C and E, as well as antioxidants. This makes it especially good for our skin to prevent aging and to fight hormonal-related acne. Broccoli is a real miracle cure for our skin!
What Makes Broccoli So Healthy?
Broccoli is full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Here is an overview of the many benefits of broccoli:
- Beautiful skin: Broccoli contains a lot of vitamins C and E. While vitamin C strengthens connective tissue, vitamin E supports collagen production. Broccoli also contains many antioxidants that fight free radicals.
- Hormone balancing: Broccoli is especially recommended for women with PMS. The contained potassium helps to lower the estrogen level and to raise the testosterone level. In addition, antioxidants have an anti-inflammatory effect and can thus alleviate and prevent hormone-related skin problems.
- Promotes digestion: Broccoli is very low in calories and at the same time rich in fiber and antioxidants. These nutrients promote digestion and contribute to healthy bowel function. Broccoli can also help with constipation.
- Strengthens the immune system: Vitamin C is probably the most important nutrient for our immune system. Because broccoli is high in vitamin C, it helps meet our vitamin C needs.
