Kaempferol is a powerful antibacterial agent that kills bacteria. Cabbage is one of the sulphur containing veggies that protect against cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

Cabbage contains glucosinolates which binds with bile acids to make it possible to lower LDL or Bad cholesterol. And steaming Cabbage does the best job of keeping these glucosinolates powerful and active to lower your cholesterol… and of course raw. Glucosinolates also changes into isothiocyanate which is a powerful anticancer compound that works well for preventing prostate, bladder, colon, and breast cancer.
