Like many other green vegetables, Brussels sprouts are thought to contain nutrients that help fight cancer. They are also low-fat, saturated fat-free, very low in sodium, a good source of fiber, and high in vitamins and folate.
VITAMINS C AND K: Excellent source. A helping of five sprouts provides more than your daily value of both.
VITAMINS B2, B6, FOLIC ACID, AND BETACAROTENE: Very good source.
SINIGRIN: A glucosinate that helps reduce the risk of colon cancer. Britain has the highest instance of colon cancer in the world and the lowest amount of glucosinates in their diets.
MINERALS: Potassium and manganese are plentiful in every sprout.
