You bet it is! Not only do both the stalk and the floret contain vitamins C, K, A, and B (yes, practically half the alphabet), calcium, iron, magnesium, and lots more stuff that’s good for you, but broccoli also contains ten to fifteen percent of your suggested daily intake of fiber.
Why is this important?
First of all, each of the vitamins and nutrients we just listed are essential to your body for your health and the more you get (within reason) the healthier you are. Not only that, but fiber can help you maintain your digestive system. Keeping things flowing through this system regularly (pun intended) will ensure that it is smooth and well-used, which, among other things, aids in preventing colon cancer.
