Benefits of Brussels sprouts

The high fiber that Brussels sprouts contain can lower cholesterol by binding with bile acids that the liver produces from cholesterol for digesting fat.

The vitamins and minerals found in Brussels sprouts, include Vitamins C, E, and A, and the mineral manganese.

Brussels sprouts are high in vitamin K  about 273.5% per 8 ounce. Vitamin K promotes healthy bones, prevents calcification of body tissues, and also helps as an anti-inflammatory agent, and also essential for brain and nerve function.

Studies have shown it can ward off cancer with only 4 servings a week compared to 10 servings a day of any other vegetable that isn't part of the crusificus vegetable family.
