Benefits of Broccoli Juice

The benefits of broccoli juice come from its high vitamin and mineral content. Try this recipe out for yourself!

Broccoli, or little trees as my kids like to call them, may provide the most all around health benefits of all vegetables. This member of the cabbage family is basically a large edible flower (we do call the little shoots florets). Their source can be traced back to the ancient Etruscans of the Mediterranean (about.com). In the United States they became popular in the 1920s. Today I’m sharing the benefits of broccoli juice.

The scientific proof of the benefits of broccoli is abundant. Research has shown that broccoli can help prevent colon cancer, reduce risk of cataracts, and protect against strokes (cnn.com). Broccoli is also reported to have positive effects on inflammation, cardiovascular and lung health, detoxification, and eye health.

Let’s have a look at some of the top nutrients in broccoli:

  • Vitamin C – needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It is also an antioxidant that blocks some of the damage caused by free radicals
  • Vitamin K – essential for the functioning of many proteins involved in blood clotting
  • Vitamin A – essential for healthy eye-sight and helps prevent from macular degeneration of the retina in the elderly population
  • Folate – is necessary for protein metabolism and cell growth and division
  • Manganese – functions as an enzyme activator
  • Potassium – helps in maintaining a healthy nervous system and makes the brain function efficient and active

Broccoli also contains a healthy amount of fiber. It is an excellent source of nutrition either steamed or raw or as sprouts. Broccoli juice has a sweet and mild taste. It blends well with other fruits and vegetables, so try some today!

  1. When juicing broccoli is best to do it quite slow as it is quite tough to get through the juicer. This is why I recommend a magic bullet juicer.
    The problem with eating raw broccoli is that it is very hard for the body to assimilate so juicing is an ideal solution to getting these power nutrients into your body.

  2. I routinely have a Vitamin K deficiency and will supplement my diet with homemade broccoli juice. I usually do broccoli and apples, but I really like that you added Orange and Ginger to this juice to create sweetness. I’m going to experiment with broccoli some more to see what other citrus will work.

  3. Before freezing your bananas or melon, chop them
    into pieces and spread these on a plate so they won’t freeze into one big lump.
