Health & Beauty Report: The Beauty Benefits of 8 Heart Healthy Foods
Celebrate American Heart Month by indulging in these foods that are good for both your health and beauty
Cabbage = Blemish-free, glowing skinThe scoop: Simpson explains that cabbage contains "indole-3-carbonile, a powerful antioxidant that supports detoxification in the liver." Why's this a boon to our beauty too? Detoxing your liver can "help to minimize toxicities that can build up in the bloodstream causing dull, blemished skin." Bonus: Both green and red cabbages boast the benefits.
Not a big fan of cabbage? The same antioxidant is found in broccoli, radishes, watercress and turnips.
Tip: Dr. Pratt and Kathy Matthew recommend eating these "cruciferous" vegetables both cooked and raw to "gain optimum health benefits" and suggest, as an example, eating "cooked broccoli and brussels sprouts and raw shredded cabbage (red and green) in salads."
