Superfood of the Month: Kale

By

All hail to Kale! There’s a reason why health-seekers everywhere are obsessed with it: It’s a powerhouse of nutrients, loaded with all sorts of beneficial compounds (some of which are actually even medicinal).

Eat or drink it regularly, and you can basically just bypass your next trip to the vitamin shelf at the pharmacy. It’s a delivery system for calcium, iron, vitamin A, K, calcium, and chlorophyll. It’s also an excellent source of Vitamin C, which helps our bodies’ cells synthesize collagen in the body. Rich in minerals that most people don’t get enough of (such as magnesium and potassium), Kale is rich in antioxidants which can protect against various cancers, help lower cholesterol levels, and is an anti-inflammatory food.

During all of that, it also detoxes the body with its fiber and sulfur, and that helps keep our livers healthy.

Reap all those many benefits by making kale a part of your diet, or try it in the tasty liquids we shake up at Nourish Your Soul: Green Juice, Grapefruit Green, Get Set, Green Goddess, Lean Green, and a new drink coming soon (stay tuned)!
