Brussel Sprouts boast high levels of nutrients and have been linked to several health benefits.
They are high in fibre which can promote regularity, support digestive health and reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
They are high in vitamins, especially Vitamin C which helps protect cells, maintain healthy skin and bones. Vitamin K helps blood clotting and bone health and may also play a role in protecting against osteoporosis.
Sprouts are high in antioxidants that may reduce cancer growth, decrease inflammation and promote heart health.
As they are high in fibre, Brussel Sprouts may help regulate blood sugar levels. Fibre moves slowly through the body undigested and slows the absorption of sugar into the blood
