Benefits of Broccoli

61. Skin
The high concentration of sulforaphane in broccoli helps to boost liver and skin s detoxification abilities, helping the skin to repair damages done from over exposure to the sun s UV harm. Different variety of broccoli tastes different, ranging from soft to fibrous and crunchy. Even the color ranges from deep sage to dark green to purplish green.
62. Stomach disorders

It also helps other stomach disorders like gastritis, esophagitis and acid indigestion. Juicing is the easiest and most effective way to get the highest volume of nutrients found in broccoli into your body. Because of its bland taste when juiced alone, similar to other green vegetables, broccoli juice is best when mixed with other more appetizing vegetables and fruits such as carrots and apples.
