What happens to your body when you eat cauliflower? It gives you healthy fiber and reduces your weight

Cauliflower is a vegetable rich in nutrients of vitamins, minerals and fiber, which must be consistently included in your diet, to obtain the high nutritional value and benefit from it. In this report, we learn about the most prominent things that happen in your body when eating broccoli, according to the "eat" website.

What happens to your body when you eat cauliflower

You'll get a healthy dose of fiber


Cauliflower is rich in fiber - 2 to 3 grams in one cup, 3 grams represents about 10% of the recommended daily intake of fiber (28 grams per day), all from a small side dish, and fiber is of course important for overall health and can help you lose weight.

Not only does fiber help keep the digestive system moving properly, but it also helps reduce inflammation.

Fiber also reduces the risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and more. It also helps you feel full (just like protein), which means you are less likely to overeat because your tummy is full of healthy things.

Your body is more hydrated


Cauliflower is 92% water This means that when you eat it, you not only get all of its nutrients, but you also drink a lot of water. For one serving of cauliflower (100 grams), you can get 59 ml of water, according to Healthline.

By using cauliflower as an ingredient in grain-based recipes, you add a lot of nutritional value and help your body digest a meal better due to the higher water content.

You may feel bloated


Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable that is rich in all the nutrients it contains - such as vitamins C, E, and K - but it also contains FODMAPs.

FODMAPs are low-fermentation sugars, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols, which basically means that these foods are made with short chain carbohydrates that are not easily digested in the small intestine.

 What happens is that it ferments in the large intestine, which not only causes bloating and gas, but studies have also linked FODMAPs to irritable bowel syndrome.

Cooking cauliflower can facilitate digestion The cooking process breaks down some of these carbohydrates so that the intestine can pass them more easily and absorb what you need when eating cauliflower, and it produces gas.

It could affect your medications


Cauliflower is rich in vitamin K, which can be a problem if you take certain medications, especially blood thinners.

Blood-thinning medication can interact with vitamin K, so people taking these medications are often warned by their doctors to monitor their vitamin K intake. Vitamin K helps the blood to clot, so it is important to keep the levels of vitamin K consistent when taking blood thinners so as not to disturb the blood balance.

If you take blood-thinning medication, be careful how much cauliflower you eat. Just one cup of cauliflower contains about 20% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin K, so it's something to be aware of.

You can lose weight


One cup contains only 25 calories, 2 to 3 grams of fiber, and a wide range of vitamins and nutrients (vitamins A, C, and K, potassium, folate, and more).
