SUPERFOOD // CAULIFLOWER:
Cauliflower is a very good source of the vitamin choline, providing 11% of the daily recommended value in just 1 cup of cooked cauliflower. Choline is a critical nutrient for the brain and nervous system. A new study found that choline helps protect the brain from Alzheimer’s by reducing the level of homocysteine, an amino acid that can have neurotoxin properties. Scientists also found that choline reduces the activation of microglia, which are cells that clear away debris in the brain (microglia are necessary for brain health, but if over activated they can cause brain inflammation, which has been linked with Alzheimer’s).
