Health benefits of red cabbage
* Anthocyanins are antioxidants that are found in purple-coloured fruits and vegetables, including red cabbage. There is a lot of ongoing research into these phytonutrients because of their many health benefits. There are growing links between inflammation and conditions such as obesity, and that the use of dietary anthocyanins may be able to help improve obesity and obesity-related diseases such as type 2 diabetes.
* Purple cabbage may also benefit your heart. This may be due to its content of anthocyanins, which are flavonoid antioxidants that give purple cabbage its characteristic color.
* Higher anthocyanin intakes may also be linked to lower blood pressure and a lower risk of heart disease.
* Purple cabbage contains several bone-benefiting nutrients, including vitamins C and K, as well as smaller amounts of calcium, manganese, and zinc.
