One of the most delicious dishes, cauliflower food recipe is made with fresh and healthy ingredients. To cook it, you don’t need too many foods, time or skills in the kitchen. I choose it because it tastes awesome and, besides, cauliflower is very healthy, overall, but also for endometriosis.

Cauliflower contains proteins, calcium, phosphorus, fibres, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin K and folate

Raw, but also cooked, cauliflower is rich in so many vitamins and minerals. Of course, each of these comes with health benefits. For example, fibres help the functioning of digestive system, vitamin K lowers inflammation, vitamin C is good for immunity, but also for joints and bones etc.



Some studies have shown that regular consumption of cauliflower, cauliflower food or supplements with substances from cruciferous vegetables might help in prostate conditions and those associated with cardiovascular system

The results of the studies are not yet sufficient to give a clear and official verdict, but the specialists’ interpretations in this context are encouraging. They say that the regular consumption of cruciferous vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage) could have benefits for prostate problems.

Another study from 2018, made by the researchers from University of Western Australia discovered that cruciferous foods can have a positive effect in lowering the risks of stroke and cardiac diseases.

In some cases, cauliflower and some other cruciferous vegetables could give side effects like bloating or gastrointestinal distress

Depending on your own particularities, cauliflower is well tolerated or less tolerated. When the detox paths of your body do not function properly, it is possible to deal with bloating or gastrointestinal issues.

Yet, in moderate consumption, from food, these cases are rare. Some problems might appear when taking supplements with cruciferous and that’s why then it is better to seek for a medical advice.
