Ingredient Spotlight: Green Cabbage

Green cabbage is nutrient-dense

This leafy green cruciferous vegetable is a member of the botanical family

Brassicaceae, which also includes broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and kale.

Cultivated for more than 4,000 years, cabbage is chock full of nutrients and

is credited with having strong anti-aging and anti-cancer properties.


This mighty green is rich in vitamins A, B6, C, and K, folate, potassium, manganese,

thiamin, calcium, and iron.


When steamed or juiced, cabbage is very healing for the digestive tract. Benefits include

proper regulation of bacterial populations of Helicobacter pylori inside the stomach.

Cabbage also contains significant amounts of polyphenols that provide anti-inflammatory

benefits.


For clients choosing to prepare homemade food, I often recommend including cabbage,

especially for pets with tummy issues.
