Cabbage can be consumed: raw or fermented in a salad, steamed or as an ingredient in a fresh vegetable juice.
Cabbage has an abundant source of Vitamin C and is higher in vitamin C than oranges. Cabbage’s Vitamin C helps reduce free radicals which are one of the fundamental causes of premature aging. Cabbage helps in repairing the wear and tear on the cellular tissues. It can also speed up the healing process for wounds and damaged tissues: especially in the stomach and intestines and helps regulate the proper functioning of the nervous system.
Cabbage is very rich in fiber which helps the body retain water while it maintains the bulkiness of food as it moves through the bowels (small and large intestines). Fiber is important for the maintenance of personal health and athletic performance and is a root cause of most inflammation associated with skin conditions, premature aging and many mild to serious conditions. Cabbage supports good digestive function.
Cabbage is loaded with sulphur which helps fight microbial infections in wounds and reduces the frequency and severity of ulcers while it aids in the healing of damaged cellular tissue.
Cabbage is rich in iodine which helps in proper functioning of the brain and the nervous system, along with keeping the glands of the endocrine system in proper condition.
Cabbage is a detoxifier that helps purify the blood and removes toxins, primarily free radicals and uric acids which are one of the primary causes of inflammation, arthritis and kidney dysfunction and skin problems.
Cabbage can be eaten as a raw fermented ingredient which brings out the whole natural sugars and helps reduce muscle soreness and muscular aches.
Cabbage has a number of compounds, like lupeol, sinigrin, and sulforaphane, which are known to stimulate enzyme activity and inhibit the growth of abnormal cells. Cabbage’s antioxidant source scavenges free radicals which are detrimental to overall health and are contributors to inflammation of all cells.
Cabbage has bio-available cadmium-binding complexes in its leaves and one of the main component complexes is glutamine which is a strong anti-inflammatory agent. Cabbage can help reduce the effects of many types of inflammation, irritations, joint pain and various skin disorders.
Cabbage is a rich source of beta-carotene which is helpful with prevention and generally promoting good eye health. Cabbage’s beta-carotene helps reduce the chances of abnormal cell growth in the prostate which is another one of the many anti-carcinogenic effects of cabbage.
Cabbage is recommended if you want to maintain or find your ideal body weight. Cabbage is packed with many beneficial vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, it is a healthy lifestyle option, quite filling, low in calories, with high levels of fiber, which adds bulk to the bowels.

Cabbage is a brain food. Cabbage has the presence of Vitamin K and anthocyanins which gives a strong boost to mental function and concentration. Cabbage’s Vitamin K is essential in the production of sphingolipids, the myelin sheath around nerves. This wrapping is what protects nerves from damage and decay and can improve your defense against neural degeneration.
Cabbages are great sources of minerals, like calcium, magnesium, and potassium. These three essential minerals are integral in the protection of bones from degradation and the onset of general nutrient bone weakening.
Cabbage has potassium which helps decrease elevated blood pressure through vasodilation by opening up the blood vessels and easing the flow of blood which reduces the stress to the arteries and veins. Cabbage is a great shield.
Cabbage has many different antioxidant sources, including vitamin-C, anthocyanins and sulphur which plays a role fighting free radicals in skin health and the general toning and improvement in response to the aging process.

Eating cabbage helps reduce the aging processes, leaving you feeling and looking healthy and young.
