Whole food(herbal medicine) used as medical treatment,  linking health benefits in prevention, management and treatment of diseases has induced much interests in today renowned scientists.
But many researchers have raised question of herbal quality, because geographic differences, time of grown and harvest, etc. may effect their's potency. I do believe, these questions can only be answered by experience herbalists.

People who have eaten cruciferous vegetable regularly may be beneficiary for reduced risk of cardiovascular disease by 15.8%, a renowned study suggested.

In the review of the association between the consumption of green leafy vegetables and risk of incidence of said diseases, intake of cruciferous vegetable is inversely associated to the incidences of total cardiovascular disease.

Cruciferous vegetables are the group of vegetables belonging to the family Brassicaceae, including cauliflower, cabbage, cress, bok choy, broccoli etc.

Heart disease kills more than 2,000 Americans everyday. Approximately 60 million Americans have heart disease. There are many causes of heart disease. Anything that serves to damage the inner lining of blood vessels and impedes the transportation of oxygen and nutrition to the heart can be defined as a risk of heart disease. Here are some early indication of heart disease symptoms:

In the study of cruciferous vegetables and its Role in Chronic Diseases, Indole-3-Carbinol, the chemical found only in the vegetable exerted several biological activities on cellular and molecular levels in prevention of the cancer and chronic illness such as cardiovascular disease.

Furthermore, the joint study lead by the The First Hospital of Jilin University, also suggested that sulforaphane, a chemical found in cruciferous vegetable exhibited protection against cardiovascular disease through its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in reduction of oxidate stress, namely activation of Nrf2 in regulated the expression of antioxidant.

Dr. Bai Y, the lead author in the study said, " Several studies have highlighted the cardinal role played by the overproduction of reactive oxygen or nitrogen species in the pathogenesis of ischemic myocardial damage and consequent cardiac dysfunction".

Taking together, there is no doubt that  intake of cruciferous vegetable regularly is associated to reduced risk and treatment of cardiovascular disease. But in order to achieve the maximum benefits, moderate exercise accompanied with change of diet and life style are necessary.
