Cruciferous vegetables (also known as Brassicaceae) include cauliflower, cress, bok choy, cabbage, broccoli and similar green leaf vegetables. They derive their name from the shape of their flowers, whose four petals form a cross, or crucifix. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, have discovered that 3,3?-diindolylmethane in these vegetables is a strong protector against prostatecancer. Even though the American Cancer Society advises adults to eat at least one serving of antioxidant cruciferous vegetables every day, most of us only eat one serving a week, if that.
Active elements in cruciferous vegetables
- support healthy breast and prostate tissue;
- maintain health levels of hormones;
- support healthy tissue growth throughout the body (inhibiting the action of cancer cells).
