We have won awards for the quality of our purple sprouting broccoli growing both Autumn and Spring varieties. Delicious lightly steamed or stir-fried, short of picking this from your own garden you can't buy fresher!
Reasons to eat broccoli:
Broccoli, particularly when steamed, can help to lower cholesterol levels, helping to protect our cardiovascular system.
Broccoli is a rich source of a flavonoid called kaempferol which appears to lessen the impact of allergy-related substances on our body.
Broccoli is packed full of Vitamins A and K - both are needed in their own right but they also help us to absorb Vitamin D which is one of the Vitamins Brits tend to get low in over the long winter when our skin is not exposed to sunlight.
High levels of Vitamin C and it's anti-inflammatory properties help make broccoli a great aid to our bodies own detoxification systems. This helps to stave off the development of long-term chronic disease such as cancer.
