Why we love Bok Choy
It contains folate, which plays a role in the production and repair of DNA, aiding in the prevention cancer cells from forming due to mutations in the DNA. Bok choy also contains vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene.
These nutrients have antioxidant properties that help protect cells against damage by free radicals.
Unlike most other fruits and vegetables, Bok choy contains the mineral selenium. Selenium helps to detoxify some cancer-causing compounds in the body. Selenium also prevents inflammation and decreases tumor growth rates.
