Pak Choi - has a slightly sweet, robust flavour. It’s an absolute power green containing vitamin C, E and beta-carotene. Pak Choi contains traces of the essential micronutrient – the mineral selenium, which helps certain antioxidant enzymes to work. These enzymes remove reactive oxygen species (free radicals) and so prevent oxidative damage to organs and tissues. Selenium also helps the hormone thyroxine, which regulates metabolism, and it prevents inflammation. It may decrease tumour growth and mitigates the effects of certain toxins such as mercury.
