They may be small, but brussels sprouts are full of essential vitamins and nutrients to strengthen your immune system.
What makes them super?
- Vitamin C: boost your immune system and maintain the health of your skin, teeth, and gums.
- Fiber: increase digestive health and reduce cholesterol.
- Folate: also known as folic acid, folate is most well-known for preventing birth defects. It also aids in the formation and maintenance of DNA, and can reduce the risk of heart disease.
- Antioxidants: Brussels sprouts contain compounds called glucosinolates and isothiocyanates that can reduce your risk of cancer*.
These tiny cabbages are versatile and can be enjoyed raw in salads, steamed, baked, and of course, sautéed with bacon*.
