Napa cabbage, along with bok choy is one of the popular cabbage vegetables in mainland China. Other multiple benefits are:

  • Packed with anti-toxins such as carotenes, thiocyanates, indole-3-carbinol, lutein, zea-xanthin, sulforaphane and isothiocyanates
  • These anti-toxins can help protect against breast, colon and prostate cancers and help reduce LDL or “bad cholesterol” levels in the blood.
  • Great source of folates such as folic acid, one of the building blocks of DNA. Thus helping against neurological diseases.
  • Full of vitamin C
  • Packed full of Vitamin K. Vitamin-K has a potential role in the bone metabolism by promoting osteotrophic activity in bone cells. Therefore, enough vitamin K in the diet makes your bone stronger, healthier and delay osteoporosis.
  • It is a very good source of electrolytes and minerals
  • Very low in calories

So smash some Chinese cabbage

Well pet, I’m a Bakewell Tart fiend, straight talking (with a slight twang), nutrition nutter, fond exercise go’er and surfing enthusiast. Visual creativity and fitness are my career and travelling my passion. So I decided to mix them, permanently, and left the London grind for a life of nomad travel. This is where I document it, like a hamster stashing his nuts. I hope you find my destination writings helpful, my nutrition posts informative and my workouts energising.
