Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable in the cabbage family. Broccoli possesses abundant fleshy unbloomed flower heads called "beads". They are green in color, arranged in a tree-like fashion on branches sprouting from a single thick, edible stalk. The large crown of beads atop the stalk is surrounded by leaves on the plant.
This hearty, tasty vegetable is rich in dozens of nutrients. In fact, it packs the most nutritional punch of any vegetable. Broccoli's noteworthy nutrients include vitamin C, vitamin A (mostly as beta-carotene), folic acid, calcium, and fiber. Broccoli also has many medicinal benefits, including its ability to prevent many types of cancer, improve our digestive system, lower cholesterol, detoxify the body, maximize vitamin and mineral uptake, prevent allergic reactions, boost the immune system, protect the skin, prevent birth defects, and lower blood pressure, just to name a few.
