Salad Endives Bok Choy & Balsamic olive oil Vinaigrette 240g
Bitter vegetables contain compounds called glucosinolates, which give them their bitter taste and are responsible for many of their health benefits. In addition to their potential cancer-fighting effects, glucosinolates in cruciferous vegetables help your liver enzymes process toxins more effectively, reducing their negative impacts on your body. Bitter-tasting foods each have their own unique health benefits, including protection against cancer, heart disease and diabetes, as well as reduced inflammation and oxidative stress.
Most of these benefits come from the wide array of polyphenols, which act as antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and even prebiotics. Since there are so many types of bitter foods to choose from, it’s easy to include at least some of them in your diet to reap multiple health benefits. (Healthline)
