Good to know!
Broccoli’s nutritional profile is super impressive. According to USDA’s Agricultural Research Service it contains phytonutrients which are compounds that lower the risk of developing diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers. It also helps fight common cold because it has a high dose of vitamin C. It significantly shortens the duration of common cold in a lot of affected individuals. Just a 100 gram of Broccoli has the potential capacity of providing 150% of your daily recommended intake of vitamin C which is fairly enough to fight common cold and shorten its duration.
