    cabbage

    Cabbage is a low calorie,
    nutrient-dense food that offers
    an excellent source of many
    nutrients including vitamin C, folic
    acid, potassium, vitamin B6,
    calcium, biotin, magnesium, and
    manganese. Along with it's
    nutrient content, cabbage
    contains phytochemicals.

    Cabbage contains powerful
    anticancer compounds known as
    glucosinolates.

    One of the dietary
    recommendations from the
    American Cancer Society is to
    regularly include cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli,
    and cauliflower in the diet. The main reason for this recommendation is due to the
    content of a large amount of phytochemicals within the cabbage family. Studies have
    shown that the phytochemicals have anti-cancer properties.

    The higher the intake of cabbage-family vegetables, the lower the rates of cancer
    especially breast, lung, colon, and prostate cancers. The glucosinolates in cabbage
    function by increasing the antioxidant defense mechanisms, and also by improving the
    body's ability to detoxify and eliminate harmful chemicals and hormones. Studies
    have also shown that cabbage is extremely effective in the treatment of peptic ulcers.

    Nutrients in Cabbage

    When it comes to nutritional value, cruciferous vegetables like cabbage are some of the best choices. An excellent source of vitamins C and K, cabbage is also a very good source of:

    • vitamin B6
    • folate
    • manganese
    • fiber

    Carbohydrates, Fiber and Protein

    Cabbage is also relatively low in both carbohydrates and protein. A half-cup serving of raw cabbage has 2 g of carbohydrates, 1 g of fiber and 0 g of protein. That same serving size of cooked cabbage has 3 g of carbohydrates, no fiber and 1 g of protein. By adding ham, sausage or tofu, you can increase the protein content of a cabbage dish.
    Vitamins

    By eating cabbage regularly, you'll significantly increase your vitamin C intake. Each half-cup serving of raw cabbage contains 30 percent of your recommended daily value of vitamin C, and each half-cup of cooked cabbage contains 25 percent, the CDC reports. Cabbage is also a good source of vitamin K, vitamin B6 and folate.
    Minerals

    Cabbage is low in sodium, with only 5 mg per serving of plain raw or cooked cabbage --- approaching 0 percent of your recommended daily value. Half-cup servings of cabbage also contain 2 percent of your daily value of calcium. While a serving of raw cabbage provides 2 percent of your daily value of iron, a serving of cooked cabbage has none.
