NOTES

Believe it or not, the simple broccoli is a gut health hero. It quietly goes about its role supporting our digestive system without ever being labelled as a superfood, but that is exactly what it is. Broccoli reduces inflammation and is a key player in maintaining gut barrier function, supporting the gut’s response to contaminants and toxins.
