Three reasons to try kohlrabi - a cancer-fighting, heart healthy, fiber rich veggie

By Michelle: (NaturalNews) Sometimes called a German Turnip, kohlrabi is a round tuber veggie in the same family that has produced broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage. It has a tough as nails exterior, but once you discover what is inside, you'll be hooked! Their taste is similar to broccoli stems but milder and with more of a crunch.

Kohlrabi is very rich in vitamin C (just one cup will give you 138 percent of your recommended daily allowance!), antioxidants, and potassium.

Ask the Expert: Omega-3 Fatty Acid

Omega-3 fatty acids (also known as n-3 fatty acids) are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential nutrients for health. We need omega-3 fatty acids for numerous normal body functions, such as controlling blood clotting and building cell membranes in the brain, and since our bodies cannot make omega-3 fats, we must get them through food. Omega-3 fatty acids are also associated with many health benefits, including protection against heart disease and possibly stroke. New studies are identifying potential benefits for a wide range of conditions including cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and other autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.
