beauty skin effects


Cabbages are rich in vitamin C. It is said that one big leaf of cabbage contains about 70% of the amount of vitamin C that we need for a day. You can reduce acnes and get shiny skin because vitamin C enhances skin’s immunity and its roles to produce collagen. Also, it plays a role in repressing the amount of melanin produced by exposure to ultraviolet. However, vitamin C is soluble when exposed to water for a while. In order to get enough vitamin C, I recommend eating fresh cabbages, for example, salad.

Antioxidants from carotene in cabbages repress that oxidizing (aging) work of reactive oxygen species. Because of this fact, it is a very important substance for antiaging.
