  • It is high in antioxidants, such as carotenoids and flavonoids, which also help protect against various cancers.
  • Kale is a great anti-inflammatory food. One cup of kale is filled with 10% of the recommend daily allowance of omega-3 fatty acids, which help fight against arthritis, asthma, and autoimmune disorders.
  • Eating more kale can help lower cholesterol levels.
  • It is high in Vitamin A, which is great for your vision, your skin, as well as helping to prevent lung and oral cavity cancers.
  • Kale is high in Vitamin C, high in calcium, and kale is still a great detox food.
