Health Benefits - Vitamins and Minerals in Chinese broccoli



Most people only eat a fraction of the government's daily recommendation of vegetables. This is where the revolutionary idea of juice comes to play. The juice theory is that it is hard to eat enough servings of vegetables when vegetables are in their natural form, but if you juice up your broccoli and your celery, you may be able to squeeze all your daily vegetable recommendations into one cup.

Vegetable Consumption
The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends eating at least five servings of vegetables a day, which amounts to 2 ½ cups of vegetables a day. According to "USA Today," only 27 percent of adults manage to eat even three servings of vegetables a day, meaning that most Americans aren't able to consume even close to the recommended daily serving of vegetables. Broccoli and celery both have many beneficial nutritional qualities and juicing them up just might provide you with a quick and easy way to experience them all.

Thanks for the information, I don't like broccoli as a person but it is full of nutrients so I always keep it as an ingredient of my salad. You can also take help from the natural ingredients to keep yourself healthy and fit. Green vegetables and fruits are filled with vitamins and minerals that are necessary for your vital organs. You can also go from the Tahitian Noni Juice so as to maintain good health and it can help in diseases like cancer, arthritis, skin disorders etc.
