Kale Health Benefits

If you are wondering how to improve memory, strengthen your bones, fight inflammation, detox your body using a natural product and use the many other health benefits of kale, we have a surprise for you! To be honest, we ourselves were surprised by the many health benefits of kale. But more of that later. What was probably a bigger surprise is to hear that kale contains four vitamins – Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin C! It also contains many minerals, including calcium, manganese, copper, potassium, iron, folate, thiamin, and riboflavin! Kale also contains low-calorie count and cholesterol! We hope that these characteristics alone will make you love kale even more!

The health benefits of eating kale every day!

  1. Kale will help you get stronger bones! – Everyone probably remembers our parents saying that we need milk to get stronger bones. But have they ever said that you also need kale if you want to get stronger bones? It is true – kale actually contains more calcium than milk! Plus our body absorbs calcium from kale better compared with the calcium that we intake from milk. But, be careful – if you want to get the most calcium that you can from kale, you need to eat it raw instead of cooked. So we suggest a nice salad made of kale and other vegetables of your choosing!
  2. Kale is filled with Omega-3 fatty acids! – We all know that fish and salmon, in particular, is probably the biggest source of Omega-3 fatty acids which are needed to our body. But did you know that kale also earns its role on being a high source of Omega-3 also? Actually, kale contains probably the most needed type of Omega-3 – the alpha-linolenic acid or also known as ALA. This fatty acid is needed to our brain in particular as well as for preserving the health of our heart and preventing diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and reducing the risk of bipolar disorder!
  3. Kale protects our DNA – Because kale is such a high source of Vitamin C, it can help protect our DNA! According to a studyspublished in the Toxicology and Industrial Health, a famous medical journal, Vitamin C, or also known as ascorbic acid, has the ability to prevent the IMA induced cause of DNA damage.
  4. Kale provides natural detoxification of the body – If you are thinking of starting a detox diet in the next few days, then kale is the best choice that you can make. Because of the low-calorie count and the many vitamins and minerals that it contains, you should include kale in the delicious salads and smoothies in the next few days and let it detox your body naturally instead of using any self—claimed products!
