Cauliflower is well known for possessing high levels of vitamin C and minerals that provide many health benefits, including reducing pain and inflammation, decreasing risk for heart disease and cancer, improving digestion, aiding detoxification, lowering weight, and balancing the hormones. When combined with the medicinal benefits of curry (turmeric), the healing powers of cauliflower are enhanced to create a super healing food that also protects the immune system.
