Health benefits
Fresh, dark green-leafy cabbage is incredibly nutritious; but very low in fat and calories. 100 g of leaves provide just 25 calories.
The vegetable is a storehouse of phyto-chemicals like thiocyanates, indole-3-carbinol, lutein, zea-xanthin, sulforaphane, and isothiocyanates. These compounds are powerful antioxidants and known to help protect against breast, colon, and prostate cancers and help reduce ldl or "bad cholesterol" levels in the blood.
Fresh cabbage is an excellent source of natural antioxidant, vitamin c. Provides 36.6 mg or about 61% of rda per 100 g. Regular consumption of foods rich in vitamin c helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful, pro-inflammatory free radicals.
Total antioxidant strength measured in terms of oxygen radical absorbance capacity (orac value) is 508 amol te/100 g. Red cabbages contain more antioxidant value, 2252 amol te/100 g.
It is also rich in essential vitamins such as pantothenic acid (vitamin b-5), pyridoxine (vitamin b-6) and thiamin (vitamin b-1). These vitamins are essential in the sense that our body requires them from external sources to replenish.
It also contains a adequate amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, iron, and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Manganese is used by the body as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. Iron is required for the red blood cell formation.
Cabbage is a very good source of vitamin k, provides about 63% of rda levels. Vitamin-k has the potential role in bone metabolism by promoting osteotrophic activity in them. So enough vitamin k in the diet gives you healthy bones. In addition, vitamin-k also has established role in curing alzheimer's disease patients by limiting neuronal damage inside their brain.
