About the product
Cabbage was one of the first plants ever to be cultivated and the ancient Egyptians worshipped cabbage heads as gods. You know, as people tend to do with vegetables. Those crazy Egyptians. Did you know that they fed their workers beer when they were building the pyramids? No wonder they made them so big - and so many! Man, it seems like you can't stumble through the desert without running into a pyramid somewhere. Anyways, Cabbage is high in anti-carcinogenic phytochemicals and it stimulates the immune system's production of antibodies.
