Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage have been associated with a reduction in risk of getting cancer and with great antioxidant and anti- inflammatory activity because they are rich sources of flavonoids like kaempferol that combats allergies and inflammation.

They also contain numerous vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin A, and calcium. more specifically broccoli contains isothiocyanates mostly sulforaphane which acts by suppressing the lipopolysaccharides (LPS) pathway which is a stimulus for macrophage recruitment and production of pro-inflammatory cytokines by this it helps ease inflammation.
