Now, I know there are many of you out there that are not really partialled to this amazing vegetable. However it truly is a super-food. It has taken me many years of hard begging for my kids to finally accept broccoli, but if you have never eaten it, then this is what you are missing...
Studies in the US have found that an element within broccoli, called sulforaphane, helps ward off the effects time can have on your body.
Dr Andre Nel, the study author, published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology in 2008 this statement "Our study shows that a chemical present in broccoli is capable of stimulating a wide range of antioxidant defence pathways and may be able to interfere with the age-related decline in immune function."
These foods, in my opinion, are probably the best anti aging foods that are simple to introduce in your diet and are easily available.
