Dr Mercola suggest that Cauliflower should be a vegetable that we regularly rotate in our diet because it is an important source of dietary fibre for digestive health. But that's not all, according to the World's Healthiest Foods:
"Researchers have determined that the sulforaphane made from a glucosinolate in cauliflower (glucoraphanin) can help protect the lining of your stomach. Sulforaphane provides you with this health benefit by preventing bacterial overgrowth of Helicobacter pylori in your stomach or too much clinging by this bacterium to your stomach wall."
Other research demonstrates that gut bacteria can be modified rapidly by dietary components, and that the increased consumption of Brassica vegetables was linked to a reduced relative abundance of SRB (Sulphate-Reducing Bacteria) and therefore may be potentially beneficial to gastrointestinal health.
To put it simply, cauliflower is great for gut health - time to put some on the end of your fork!
