Like it or hate it, broccoli is renowned as a superfood , offering a range of health benefits. And it’s about to become even more beneficial, according to the latest study.. Flavonoids found within the 'superfood' could aid the body's response to diseases, researchers declare.

Now scientists from the University of Illinois researchers have discovered candidate genes controlling the accretion of phenolic compounds in broccoli  scientists believe they are now one-step closer to creating other vegetables for example, kale and cabbage  with mega-doses of phenolic compounds. For additional medical advantages.  

"Phenolic compounds have good antioxidant activity, and there is increasing evidence that this antioxidant activity affects biochemical pathways affiliated with inflammation in mammals. We need inflammation because it's a response to disease or damage, but it's also associated with initiation of a number of degenerative diseases. Just consuming the vegetable once every three days could improve the immune system by aiding inflammation.

And the experts say we need to add broccoli or some other Brassica vegetable to the menu twice a week or every three or four days to lower the risk of cancers and other degenerative diseases.Eating broccoli could lower your risk of having coronary heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and several types of cancer, experts suggests.
