Brussel Sprouts are really healthy food as they are incredibly healing to your body. Brussel sprouts are very alkaline and rich with Micro and Macro nutrients along with fibers.
Remember: Any food which is plant-based, not processed and natural, alkaline, water-rich, fiber-rich, and very low in calories while very high in nutritional value is like using your food as a Medicine.
Eating Brussels sprouts helps protect against cancers of the Stomach, Lungs, Kidney, Breast, Bladder, and prostate.
It will also benefit in helping with other health issues like High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Diabetes and Heart Disease.
Why are Brussel sprouts such an awesome and healing food?
Brussels Sprouts contain a natural, sulfur-based substance, Glycosinolate Glucobrassicin, that prevents damage to your DNA. That is how it helps prevent cancer. It may also stop new
blood vessels from growing inside the tumors.
Brussels are high in vitamin K which helps your blood clot. For this reason, it’s important to check with your health care provider if you are on a blood thinner.
Brussels sprouts have a type of carbohydrate that your body may not be able to easily break down, and this may cause belly pain, gas, and either diarrhea or constipation. You may want to watch out if you have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).
Here are some of the facts:

I am a firm believer in using our food as medicine so we never have to use medicine as our food. If you eat Whole Food Plant-Based (WFPB) natural foods, you will see how your body starts healing, and you can get rid of your health challenges and live a normal life without medication. There are so many foods that can fight health challenges, balance our sugar, and help with inflammation.
All without having to take a pill.
Incorporate Brussels sprouts along with WFPB, sparingly some nuts, legumes, beans, and some sprouts to feel the energy and vitality for your long-life span of Health, fitness, and happiness.
