Have you ever tried something like Broccoli Latte? Of course not, but a new research suggests that adding broccoli latte to your everyday meal not just helps you in losing weight but it also makes you fit. Broccoli latte is invented by an Australia based firm Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). It is made by adding broccoli powder in your regular coffee cup. The main motive behind making such kind of beverage is to make people eat more veggies. “Our research shows that two-thirds of adults do not eat enough vegetables. Broccoli contains protein, fiber and health-promoting bioactive phytochemicals, making it an ideal candidate for being turned into a powder ingredient,” explained the statement by CSIRO. Broccoli latte follows the trail of other healthy drinks such as mushroom coffee, turmeric latte and butter coffee. Why is broccoli known as a superfood, coz it is rich in protein and can be eaten as a stir-fried dish. You can also eat it directly as a salad if you are looking for a steady weight loss.
“It has high levels of antioxidants and lowest calories,” says nutritionist Iram Zaidi.Studies have attributed a lot of benefits to broccoli. Researchers from the University of Western Australia found that eating cruciferous vegetables like broccoli three or more times per day can decrease the risk of heart diseases. A study published in the journal Science Translational Medicine found that broccoli contains an anti-diabetic substance and a 2015 study by the Institute of Food Research (IFR) in Norwich, Britain, showed that including a broccoli in the diet could improve heart health by reducing levels of bad cholesterol in the blood by 6%. This is not it, a study done by Pennsylvania State University in the US found that people who suffer from digestive problems in their guts could benefit by consuming three and a half cups of fibrous vegetables like broccoli. In addition, broccoli may also help prevent cancer-causing diseases and Crohn’s Disease, which is caused by inflammation in the lining of the gut.
