Eggplant is known for its delicious flavor, unique texture, and versatility. But did you know that eggplant is also one of the most nutritious vegetables that you can buy? It’s true! When you buy locally-grown, organic eggplant, you are ensuring that you are eating the best, most flavorful eggplant. No matter how you like your eggplant, locally-grown, organic eggplant will give you the health boost you’ve been looking for!
Good For Your Brain
Do you usually shave or slice the beautiful purple skin off of your eggplants? If you do, then it’s time to consider otherwise because that skin is very good for you. In fact, the skin of organically-grown eggplants contains an anthocyanin phytonutrient called nasunin. Nasunin is known to protect the lipids in brain cell membranes. This nutrient protects brain cells from potential invaders, allowing the brain to function normally and stay safe.
Promote A Healthy Heart
Having a healthy heart is imperative to living a healthy life. If you struggle with high cholesterol levels, eggplant is one of the best vegetables that you can eat. These unique and gorgeous veggies have been clinically proven to reduce cholesterol levels in lab animals with high cholesterol. The phytonutrients in eggplants also aid in improved blood flow, helping your heart function as well. When a vegetable tastes this good and helps you stay healthy, there’s no reason not to find some at your local farmer’s market.
Antioxidants For Disease Prevention
Antioxidants play a major role in keeping our bodies working properly and staying disease-free. When you opt for organic eggplants, you are consuming antioxidants that prevent cancer, prevent viruses, prevent the growth of unwanted bacteria, as well as reduce cholesterol. With nutrients that are this good for your body, it’s time to find some new eggplant recipes that you, your family, and friends will enjoy for years to come.
