Cauliflower is rich in sulfur compounds that help to detoxify the body and cleanse the liver. Although it contains dietary goitergens, it is safe for those with thyroid conditions as the goitergens are detactivated when cooked. Cauliflower is from the brassica family of vegetables, (like broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage and kale), as a result, it helps to remove carcinogens from the body. It is excellent for balancing blood sugar and will not spike insulin levels!
