Purple broccoli is a positive anti-inflammatory food to consume if you are trying to lower inflammation, eat more roughage, and to generally keep your system moving. As a person with degenerative osteoarthritis I have learned that certain foods seem to help me relieve inflammation more than others; purple sprouting broccoli works well and is full of antioxidants. Both the vitamins and antioxidants are most readily retained when eaten raw.
Besides all of the above benefits, purple broccoli is absolutely delicious and looks beautiful in a salad or side dish. Watch the video (here at the LINK if you cannot see it above) to learn more about how to plant, grow, and harvest this ornamental edible vegetable in your garden.
