Yes, you can. Cabbage is a leafy vegetable known for its fiber, vitamin C, and other vitamins. Studies are underway to determine its antimicrobial properties. From recent studies, it is proven that:

·     Red cabbage is effective against a broad range of microorganisms, including bacteria and fungi.

·     Some of these bacteria included the drug-resistant MRSA, Escherichia coli, Helicobacter pylori, and other challenging bacteria.

That being said, you can include cabbage in your diet to derive its antibiotic properties, but it should never be considered as a substitute to antibiotics that have been prescribed. You can find more about health benefits of cabbage here.
