Cabbage is among the few vegetables which have so many healthy befits but often people dislikes it due to the blend taste and the smell it gives while cooking . Same goes with purple cabbage as it is harder then the normal cabbage so people often use it only in salads and in small quantity . Cabbage is a very healthy vegetable, it have a good amount of vitamin C and K, it aids weight loss, boost immune system, have anti aging properties, reduce risk of lung and breast cancer, protects against Alzheimer, good to use in ulcers and many more health benefits.
