Broccoli is rich in vitamins and minerals
Whatever the type of broccoli, there’s no denying that it has many health benefits. In addition to being a great low carb, and therefore very indicated in weight loss diets, it also prevents the development of cancer and fights premature aging. It’s also high in fiber, which allows the digestive system to function well, as well as providing that feeling of fullness that prevents a person from consuming more than necessary.
It is also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, having, for example, good amounts of calcium, which makes bones and teeth stronger and prevents osteoporosis. It is also rich in vitamin C, which in addition to strengthening the immune system increases iron absorption by the body. In fact, this mineral is also present in broccoli, which means that it brings a very beneficial combination to our body. This is because, in addition to preventing anemia, iron also increases the body’s metabolism, being very suitable for those who exercise. Finally, the vegetable also has good amounts of vitamin A, which helps hair and skin vitality and improves eye health.
Cottage is an ally of fitness
Normally, those who start dieting cut cheese from the diet for its fat, but this is not done with cottage cheese, as its lipids appear in small amounts. It’s also a great source of protein while being low in calories, which makes it not only a pretty good ingredient in weight-loss diets, it’s also a great ally for those who exercise and want to stay in good shape. We must not forget that because it is derived from milk, it also has a good amount of calcium and is a great probiotic, which means that it acts directly on the intestinal flora, allowing the digestive system to be well regulated.
