Broccoli Defies Aging

I'll take it one step further. Good nutrition defies aging.

Certainly broccoli is a power food. Even without considering the benefits of Sulforaphane, the ingredient that this article claims to be the anti-aging elixir that activates the antioxidants in the body's cells that stop cell damage.

Antioxidants may stall the development of cardiovascular disease, degenerative joint diseases and diabetes, the research shows, and may strengthen the immune system. As people age, their immune system weakens and their ability to fight off infections wears down.

But broccoli, no matter how powerful, cannot stave off the effects of over-eating, obesity and a sedentary lifestyle.

So give broccoli a chance to be a hero. Eat a little less and exercise a little more.

Broccoli may be key to staying young
