Broccoli and Leafy Greens for Beauty

Yes, fruits and vegetables can help to make you look more beautiful. And that’s true even of something as simple as your humble broccoli!

Broccoli is perhaps a little less ‘exotic’ when compared with some of the other superfood fruits and vegetables on this list. But don’t let that fool you: this is still an incredibly nutritious food that everyone should be getting more of.

For starters, broccoli is a good source of fiber and can once again help to improve your digestion, your bowel movements, and much more. On top of that though, broccoli is also very high in vitamins K, vitamin C, fiber, potassium, collagen, iron, calcium, and more.

Let’s start by diving into that collagen. This is something that all of us need but very few of us get. Collagen has been shown to improve brain function and combat against Alzheimer’s, it also helps to reduce back pain, improves skin elasticity, strengthens the nails, combats leaky gut syndrome, fights knee pain, and generally toughens up your tendons, ligaments, and bones. This is why meals such as bone broth as so incredibly good for us.

With today’s rampant raise of collagen and other vitamin supplements, we should essentially keep in mind that the significant advantages of getting more nutrients from your diet yields more beautiful effects rather than from supplements. While it’s true that you can benefit from supplements, the clue here is in the name. These are intended to “supplement” your regular diet.
