FACTOID:A cup of cooked broccoli has more vitamin C than an orange. Vitamin C enhances iron absorption, making broccoli an ideal companion for iron-rich meat, poultry or seafood.

Broccoli is not only rich in disease-fighting vitamin C, it also contains phytochemicals — including beta carotene, sulforaphane, and indoles — which protect against or slow the growth of some types of cancer. Cooked broccoli offers even more benefits than raw. Cooking the vegetable raises the indole content by freeing a crucial enzyme.
