Cabbage is an abundant source of Vitamin C. You might be surprised to know cabbage is actually richer in Vitamin C than in oranges, which is considered the best source of the vital nutrient. Cabbage is very helpful in treating ulcers, depression, immune system boosting, certain cancers and defending against cough and cold. Cabbage is also rich in fiber, it helps retain water and maintains the bulkiness of the food. So it is a good remedy for constipation and other digestion related problems. Very good for weight loss too.
