Eating cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflowers on a regular basis can provide fantastic health benefits including high levels of Vitamin c (almost 85% of required daily value) and Vitamin K. Research has also shown a connection between cauliflower and cancer prevention since cauliflower provides special nutrient support for three body systems that are closely connected with cancer development as well as cancer prevention. These three systems are (1) the body’s detox system, (2) its antioxidant system, and (3) its inflammatory/anti-inflammatory system.
As a minimum, it is recommended to include cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower as part of your diet 2-3 times per week (roughly 1-1.5 cups).
