Healthy Benefits of Napa Cabbage

Napa cabbage is most commonly found in Chinese cooking, but recently has been taking North America by storm because of its powerhouse nutritional profile. It is sweet, crunchy and is part of the superfood group: The Brassica family, along with other stars like bok choy, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage.

  • Nappa cabbage is high in vitamin C which is crucial for collagen formation! This means it can help prevent ageing by keeping your skin elastic, your joints strong and your hair and nails thick!
  • It helps to strengthen bones and teeth due to high amounts of vitamin K and calcium
  • Napa Cabbage is rich in antioxidants which can prevent chronic diseases and fight inflammation in the body.
  • It is a pre-biotic which means it feeds all the good bacteria in your body – keeping your immune system strong and durable.
