Cabbage, the leafy green vegetable is probably one of the most consuming and popular vegetables which are grown in almost every state of India. Cabbage is low in calories but high in fiber, which makes it a potent natural health booster that has been used for thousands of years. Moreover, this leafy vegetable has been a crucial part of the Indian kitchen, but very few are aware of its benefits and qualities. Rich in vitamin K, B6 and B1, cabbage provides 85 percent of the body’s daily requirement. Let’s explore the surprising health benefits of this leafy green vegetable which you never knew.  

The Nutritional Properties of Cabbage 

Rich in Vitamin K 

“Rich in vitamin K, cabbage provides 85 percent of the body’s daily requirement. This nutrient is important not only for bone health but also as an Alzheimer’s disease preventative by limiting neuronal damage in the brain. 

Supply Vitamin C to Your Body

The 54 percent daily value of vitamin C supplied to the body with one serving of cabbage is impressive, too — even more than oranges. Vitamin C is one of the most important nutrients required by humans as it plays a role in brain health, immune system health, inflammation, blood pressure, and mitochondrial function. 

Excellent Source of Dietary Fiber 

Cabbage is also an excellent source of dietary fiber, which is a substance crucial for a healthy digestive system. 

Dietary fiber is the part of the vegetable that cannot be digested, wherein it passes through your digestive system mostly intact. As a result, it bulks and softens your stool, helping facilitate regular bowel movements.

Rich in vitamin B6, Folate and Manganese, Vitamin B1, vitamin B6, and Pantothenic Acid 

Cabbage is rich in other nutrients such as vitamin B6, folate and manganese, as well as healthy amounts of thiamin (vitamin B1), pyridoxine (vitamin B6) and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). It also provides iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium for strong bones and potassium for regulating the heart rate and blood pressure.”
