A top immune system thanks to vitamin C
What is special about broccoli? It is very rich in vitamin C , which we lack during the winter and which plays a very important role in our immunity. The proposed recipe allows you to consume this raw green vegetable and thus to benefit to the maximum of its benefits, because cooking destroys vitamin C.
