When we were coming up with flavor ideas for our newest smoothies, one special ingredient caught our attention: cauliflower. Cauliflower is the food that took the world by storm this year because of its incredible nutritional profile—you can find cauliflower pizzas, cauliflower rice, and now with our Rejuvenate flavor, you can even try cauliflower in your daily smoothie!
But what makes cauliflower so powerful? Why should you look into making it a part of your daily diet?
Here are some of the reasons we love cauliflower, and why we know you’ll love it too!
Health Benefits of Cauliflower
Cauliflower packs a powerful dose of vitamins. For being so low in calories (about 25 calories per cup), it contains over 10 important vitamins your body needs to thrive. These include magnesium, potassium, folate, and Vitamin B6. It also includes the nutrient Choline, which is hard to find in other plant-based sources.
Cauliflower aids in promoting a healthy gut. One of the number one health concerns among individuals is an irritated gut, which is in large part due to a lack of good fiber in the diet. Cauliflower is full of healthy fiber, which helps to fight off inflammation in the gut and promote an overall healthy digestive system.
Cauliflower is full of powerful antioxidants. According to Healthline, “cauliflower is particularly high in glucosinolates and isothiocyanates, two groups of antioxidants that have been shown to slow the growth of cancer cells.”
