The phytonutrients provided by cauliflower are headed off by its glucosinolates. These sulfur-containing compounds are well-studied and known to provide a variety of health benefits. The glucosinolates best-studied in cauliflower include:
Glucosinolates are the subject of increasing health research, and the more that is learned about glucosinolates, the broader scientists see their role in supporting our body systems. The list of body systems supported by intake of glucosinolates from cauliflower and other cruciferous vegetables has now come to include our cardiovascular, digestive, immune, inflammatory, and detoxification systems.
