Steamed broccoli, green water? Should I be concerned?

I've been told the green water from steaming 'which is supposedly the healthiest way' is nutrients that have leaked out.

Can I avoid this? Is serious in terms of nutrient loss?

    No. Just don't overcook it and make it go too bitter.   You can save the green water to help make a vegetable stock.

    The green is from the chlorophyll in the vegetables it’s not all the nutrients.
