½ cup broccoli is only 27 calories, but that’s not all! The vegetable has more than your daily value of vitamin K and almost your daily value of vitamin C. Plus, it has ¼ of your daily value of vitamin A and folate (42).

Folate decreases breast cancer risk in women as well as colon, stomach, pancreatic and cervical cancers. That’s because the vitamin wards against DNA and RNA mutations (43).

The fiber in broccoli, on the other hand, lowers your risk of developing coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and certain gastrointestinal diseases (44).

It also lowers blood pressure, improves cholesterol levels, boosts insulin sensitivity, and supports weight loss.
