Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and brussel sprouts contain a variety of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that can enhance the liver's capacity to detoxify harmful, carcinogenic compounds. These veggies help to keep your blood flowing and skin glowing, while also helping to fight age-related vision impairment and blindness. The vitamin C in these vegetables helps the body make collagen which is an important protein that is required to maintain and repair skin elasticity. Along with vitamin E and other phytonutrients, it blocks some of the damage done by free radicals. (These free radicals build up over time and contribute to the aging process.)
