Turnip is native to a large area in the Eastern Mediterranean and primarily in Western Asia. The earliest plantings of turnip were in the ancient Middle East's two rivers until the Indus Plain. In addition, China is also one of the origins of turnip. According to the records, turnips have been widely grown before the Chinese Zhou Dynasty to the Western Han Dynasty. They seem to have a kinship with potatoes and beets, but are actually more connected with broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and kale.

Turnip is low in calories. 100 grams of turnip contains only 20 calories. Moreover, it is a bulky food that make you feel full and not easy to be hungry. This make turnip a excellent choice for people who are trying to lose weight.  

Indole 3 Carbinol Powder and Turnip

Dietary fiber can help us improve digestive tract and prevent colon and rectal cancer. The occurrence of these two types of cancer is mainly related to the long residence time of carcinogens in the intestine and the long-term contact with the intestinal wall. Increasing the fiber content of the diet can make the concentration of carcinogens relatively lower. At the same time, dietary fiber stimulates bowel movements, which can shorten the contact time between carcinogens and the intestinal wall. 

There is one more factor that contributes to the anti-cancer effect of turnip. Turnip contains glucosinolate which can be transformed to I3C. I3C can lower the risk of some types of cancer. Indole 3 carbinol powder also contains I3C. You can choose to take indole 3 carbinol powder, in case that vegetables are not your favorite.
