Why add Kale to your Diet? Here’s Why…


Kale is a wonder food. The green leafy bunch is chock full of vitamins, minerals and is even called the “queen of greens” It’s not bad being the queen. This green has more antioxidants than any other leafy green, has anti-inflammatory nutrients and anti-cancer nutrients. It helps fight aging with production of collagen keeping wrinkles at bay, cancer fighting, lowers cholesterol, helps maintain strong eyes, balances hormones, aids in weight loss because it is high in fiber, shinier hair… and the list goes on and on

Here is a breakdown of all the nutrients in Kale provided by Whole Foods:

Nutrients in Kale:

  • vitamin K 1327.6%
  • vitamin A 354.1%
  • vitamin C 88.8%
  • manganese 27%
