2. Nourish Better Skin
Smooth, moisturized skin comes from the inside out. Broccoli can help with its combination of vitamin C and potent antioxidants. Just one cup of broccoli covers the entire RDA of vitamin C for women and about 90% RDA for men. Vitamin C is critical in the production of collagen, one of the proteins that nourish skin and hair. The result is young-looking skin that is smooth and elastic.
Free radicals grab atoms from our cells and damage them, leading to accelerated aging. Antioxidants bind with free radicals and prevent them from causing this damage. Together, the effect of vitamin C and antioxidants can really improve the look, feel, and agelessness of your skin.
