What are the benefits of Rocket lettuce -:
Lettuce Rocket Improves Eye Health-: Beta-carotene – the precursor of Vitamin A – is good for your eyes as it scavenges free radicals to protect the retina. And that’s not the only peeper-protective nutrient in arugula; it also contains lutein and zeaxanthin as well. These two nutrients protect the eyes from high-intensity illumination and UV rays thereby avoiding vision impairments.
Reduces Cancer Risk-: The evidence is emerging that arugula may lower the risks of cancers. The buzz word here is glucosinolates a Sulphur containing the compound. When you consume arugula, glucosinolates get metabolized into indoles, thiocyanates, and isothiocyanates. Research shows that indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane (an isothiocyanate) may inhibit cancer by either of these mechanisms.
Helps Control Blood Pressure-: The heart benefits of arugula don’t stop with reducing cholesterol, triglycerides, and diabetes. They also lower blood pressure – an important risk factor for heart disease. Arugula contains plenty of calcium and magnesium – the essential minerals that dilate blood vessels and maintain healthy blood pressure levels. Also, it has a considerable amount of potassium that may help reduce the risk of hypertension..
