    Organic Green Cabbage (1 Med/Lrg)

    Overview

    Despite its impressive nutrient content, cabbage is often overlooked.

    While it may look a lot like lettuce, it actually belongs to the Brassica genus of vegetables, which includes broccoli, cauliflower and kale.

    It comes in a variety of shapes and colors, including red, purple, white and green, and its leaves can be either crinkled or smooth.

    This vegetable has been grown around the world for thousands of years and can be found in a variety of dishes, including sauerkraut, kimchi and coleslaw.

    Additionally, cabbage is loaded with vitamins and minerals.


    Benefits:

    1. Cabbage Is Packed With Nutrients

    Even though cabbage is very low in calories, it has an impressive nutrient profile.

    In fact, just 1 cup (89 grams) of raw green cabbage contains:

    • Calories: 22
    • Protein: 1 gram
    • Fiber: 2 grams
    • Vitamin K: 85% of the RDI
    • Vitamin C: 54% of the RDI
    • Folate: 10% of the RDI
    • Manganese: 7% of the RDI
    • Vitamin B6: 6% of the RDI
    • Calcium: 4% of the RDI
    • Potassium: 4% of the RDI
    • Magnesium: 3% of the RDI

    Cabbage also contains small amounts of other micronutrients, including vitamin A, iron and riboflavin.

    As you can see in the list above, it is rich in vitamin B6 and folate, both of which are essential for many important processes in the body, including energy metabolism and the normal functioning of the nervous system.

    In addition, cabbage is high in fiber and contains powerful antioxidants, including polyphenols and sulfur compounds.

    Antioxidants protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that have an odd number of electrons, making them unstable. When their levels become too high, they can damage your cells.

    Cabbage is especially high in vitamin C, a potent antioxidant that may protect against heart disease, certain cancers and vision loss
