Kale is among the world’s healthiest foods. The nutrients support healthy skin, hair and bones, healthy digestion and a reduced risk of 3 chronic health conditions.
#1 Diabetes: High fiber diets have been shown to improve blood sugar, lipids, and insulin levels. (Type 2 Diabetes)
#2 Heart Disease: Kale contains fiber, potassium, Vitamin C and B6, which all support heart health. For lowering blood pressure, increased potassium intake may be as important as decreased sodium intake.
#3 Cancer: Kale and other green vegetables contain chlorophyll. This helps the digestive tract prevent absorption of carcinogens from certain foods we consume. *It’s important to pair meat with green vegetables.
