Kale has many properties in it that I would like to bring to your attention, here are some of them.
- 150 mg of Calcium in 100 per 100 grammes
- Each gramme has twice as much vitamin c as an average orange a cup of Kale has 133 percent of your daily vitamin C requirements
- Kale is a source of healthy fats. Kale is actually a great source of omega 3 fatty acid that’s essential for brain health, reduces type 2 diabetes risk and boosts heart health as well. Each cup has 120 mg of omega 3
- Kale has a chemical in it called Indole -3 which has been found to boost DNA repair in cells and inhibit the growth of cancer cells this evidence was published in the British Journal Of Cancer.
- Eating it raw as in having it blended in a juicer. If you don’t fancy eating it raw, then steam it rather than boil it, as boiling it reduces effectiveness. Or if you prefer you could stir fry it in olive oil.
- Kale has vitamin K which is a group of structurally similar, fat-soluble vitamins the human body needs for complete synthesis of certain proteins that are required for blood coagulation, and also certain proteins that the body uses to manipulate binding of calcium in bone and other tissues. Kale is ideal as one of your five a day.
