Cabbage - Benefits, Medicinal and Health Uses of Cabbage

   

The cabbage (group of Capitata of brassica oleracea) is a factory of the Brassicaceae family (or of cruciferae). It is herbaceous, bi-annual, and a flowering plant with sheets forming a characteristic compact beam.

The only part of the plant which is normally eaten is the leafy head; more with precision, the spherical beam of the nonripe sheets, other than the partially revealed external sheets. Alleged “the cabbage head” is largely consumed - vintage, cooked, or preserved - in a large variety of dishes, and is thus a green vegetable.

Like other leaf vegetables, cabbage contains vitamin K, the blood-clotting vitamin produced naturally by bacteria in our intestines. Additional intake of vitamin K may reduce the effectiveness of anticoagulants (warfarin, Coumadin, Panwarfin), so that larger doses may be required.
