According to Medical News Today, bok choy (also known as Chinese white cabbage) is a cruciferous vegetable that is in the same family as broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower. One cup of raw bok choy provides 17% of your recommended daily amount of vitamin A, 26.5 percent of your daily vitamin K and 35 percent of your daily vitamin C.
