New research shows that eating broccoli reduces the risk of a heart attack by boosting the body’s ability to fight off damage to cells. This is of particular importance to those of us with PCOS as our condition makes many prone to heart disease.
As well as being a nutritious part of a weight loss diet, there is a clear link between high levels of certain substances found in broccoli and reduced injury to hearts that are deprived of oxygen by cell damage.
In particular, broccoli contains sulforaphane, which triggers production of proteins that are part of the body’s cardiovascular defense system.
Eat broccoli raw or lightly cooked – if it’s over-cooked, the vegetable will lose a lot of its protective benefits.
