As kids, your mothers most likely always told you to eat your greens to stay healthy. At the time, you might have resented the thought of eating vegetables like broccoli at a meal (yuck, moooom!), but as usual, our mothers were right. Turns out that broccoli is not only a superfood when it comes to your nutritional health, but it’s also being used more and more frequently as a powerhouse beauty ingredient in the form of broccoli seed oil.
