Grapevine, TX | Benefits of Cauliflower | Kotsanis Institute
Hi, I'm Megan with Kotsanis Institute. Today we're talking about cauliflower. Cauliflower is great because it's really just lots of clumps of thousands of little flowers. I like to think of it as the maintenance tool, because it keeps several of your body's systems running the way they're supposed to. It is about 25% protein, so it's a good compliment to what else is on your plate. It's also high in vitamin C, folic acid and potassium. Folic acid is what helps your body to make and maintain cells, as well as breakdown and convert the food that you eat into energy. Potassium, to make a long story short, keeps your body's electric system running freely and without glitches. That's why low potassium levels are tied to muscle cramps, and even in severe cases, to irregular heartbeat.
I'd like to give a special thanks to Diane DeMore. She's the nutritionist on this Kotsanis Institute staff who is supplying me with all of this wonderful information concerning the foods that we eat. She's a wealth of knowledge, a great laugh and a pretty good rock and roll singer too. To contact Diane or to learn more about how nutrition can affect your health contact the Kotsanis Institute at www.kotsanisinstitute.com. In the meantime, have a great day.
