Cabbage is full of antioxidants and Vitamin C and can protect against colds and flu, and Alzheimer’s disease; help proper nervous function; and can strengthen your immune system.
Red cabbage, also known as purple cabbage, is better. It contains 36 different varieties of anthocyanins, a class of flavonoids that have been linked to cancer protection. Anthocyanins have been shown to suppress the inflammation that may lead to cardiovascular disease. They also help in reducing blood sugar levels.
Red cabbage also has more Vitamin C than an orange, and 10 times more Vitamin A than green cabbage. It’s good for bone and digestive health, and weight loss; maintains blood pressure, and benefits your skin.
