It is a wonderful source of phosphorus to help support bones and teeth as well as selenium to help protect against free radical damage. Apples contain a long list of phytonutrients such as quercetin, catechin, phloridzin and chlorogenic acid. Chlorogenic acid, has been linked with improved blood sugar balance and quercetin has been shown to have antiviral, anti inflammatory and anti histamine effect. Rocket is a member of Brassica family, and is a rich source of phytochemicals such as indoles, thiocyanates, sulforaphane, and iso-thiocyanates. Sulforaphane has been identified as one of the strongest known inducers of phase II liver enzymes making it fantastic at neutralising toxins. Studies have also shown sulforaphane’s ability to significantly impact and improve mood and behaviour in children on the autism spectrum. Further, di-indolyl-methane (DIM), a lipid soluble metabolite of indole has immune modulator, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties (by potentiating Interferon-Gamma receptors). Rocket is also an excellent source of folate, vitamins, A, C, K, a host of B vitamins and a great source of calcium and iron.
