WHY? Bok Choy

Tid Bit(e) Tuesday

Bok Choy

  1. CANCER FIGHTING- Bok Choy contains brassinin, an antimicrobial substance that’s a proven chemopreventive agent (meaning they help protect you from cancer cell formation) (1)
  2. INFLAMMATION- Bok Choy contains the beloved omega-3 fats! And vitamin K which both help fight inflammation
  3. CARROTS?- You know how everyone says carrots are good for your eye? Well guess what! So is bok choy! Thanks to the high amounts of beta-carotene and vitamin A found in the plant
  4. IMMUNE SYSTEM- Bok Choy contains selenium too! This wonderful mineral helps with the production of your killer “T” cells which literally attack and kill foreign bacteria in your body (2)
