Rwanda: Cabbages Said to Be Rich in Vitamins and Source of Medicine

Cabbages are many of the vegetables that are grown in all parts of Rwanda according to the report given by Rwanda Horticulture Development Authority (RHODA) that is a part of National Agriculture and Export board (NAEB).

Cabbages are rich in vitamins A, C, B, E and K that are very much needed by the human body. They can also be used as supplement to medicine that heals stomach ulcers, high blood pressure, and cancerous boils as cabbages are capable of discouraging the growth of these boils.

Cabbages can be eaten low as salads and they are very rich with all vitamins as cooking them reduces the vitamins and the medicine in them. Washing them thoroughly with boiled water and cutting them in small parts, adding in vinegar and lemon juice makes it best to eat uncooked.

Cabbages can also be served well when cooked either boiled or fried in cooking oil and in tomatoes. They can also be mixed in other food stuffs especially other vegetables of which they make a good combination.

Cabbages can also make nice juice using blender and either drank plain or in the mixture of other juices especially pineapple juice, beet juice or garlic juice. This juice can be sweetened by adding in sugar or honey and it is usually used when acting as a supplement to a certain medicine.
