The Best Veggies for Your Heart

23 Jun

In a recent Australian study of 954 older women. those who ate three or more vegetable servings per day fared better based on a stroke risk factor known as carotid artery intima-media thickness than those who had two servings per day or fewer. The women in the study filled out food questionnaires and had scans that measured the thickness of their neck arteries.

All veggies are healthy, but this study suggests that cruciferous ones, such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, and cauliflower, seem to be the most beneficial.

Why? Sulforaphane, a compound in them, may inhibit inflammation.
