These Cabbage Recipes will Leave you Begging for More!

Cabbage recipes gone smoothie…is what you will find here! Usually we recommend that green smoothie beginners start by adding a little spinach (because it is mild) but cabbage is also another great option.

Cabbage probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of green smoothies, but guess what, you can hardly taste the green in green smoothie when using cabbage!

Health Benefits of Cabbage

Any dark leafy green will carry a whole host of health benefits that the body will soak up. Cabbage is an excellent source of many vitamins, minerals etc… specially when eaten in the "raw" and in a "smoothie"!

Boost Energy – Yes, it is true, cabbage does contribute to energy levels and one of the key components for this are the vitamin B levels it contains. As you know, the proper amount of vitamin B is essential to everyone’s energy levels, and consuming cabbage in the raw is also essential in maintaining the B vitamins. Because once cooked most vitamins and minerals will escape, thus leaving it no where near as nutrient dense.

Aids Digestion – cabbage not only aids digestion with its fiber content, but also leaves the digestive tract feeling refreshed. It can do this because cabbage is rich in all the proteins, vitamins and minerals that are very healing to the digestive tract. It also contains anti-inflammatory properties as well as antioxidant properties, which are very good for overall health.

Good Source of Minerals – cabbage is an excellent source to get some much needed minerals such as: potassium, manganese, magnesium and iron. All of which boost the immune system.

Cabbage…Good for the Skin?

Yes, cabbage contains an enormous amount of anti-aging compounds such as vitamin C as well as beta-carotene. These two antioxidants protect the skin by repairing cells that have been damaged by free radicals – which are cancer causing substances.

Beta-Carotene – supports the immune system by helping to stimulate the thymus glands which fight off infections and viruses as well as helping to destroy “good cells gone bad” also known as free radicals.

Vitamin C – also known as ascorbic acid, is needed for the production of collagen, which supports the tissues that supports the skin. Collagen is absolutely necessary for the proper formation of bones and healthy blood vessels while also helping to fight away those unwanted colds.

Any vitamin or mineral that supports the immune system will ultimately support your skin. Remember, healthy on the inside = healthy on the outside!
