Some facts about Kale
100 calories of Kale have more than 350 Mg of Omega3, much higher concentration than any other existing food.
One cup of Kale contains more micrograms of vitamin K than any other to which you want to compare it.
Kale contains a concentrated vitamin load (K, A, C, E, B2, B1, B6, B3), minerals (Iron, Manganese, Copper, Potassium, Calcium), Beta-carotene, Omega3, Proteins and Fiber.
A weapon against cholesterol.
Once the digestion process begins, our liver releases cholesterol to produce bile acids. These acids are used by our body to digest and absorb nutrients from the body; however they are generally reabsorbed by the body. The extraordinary ability of Kale fibers to bind to cholesterol in the intestine, results in it being eliminated in regular evacuation with food waste. From this it follows that the body must use cholesterol reserves to produce new bile acid, reducing the level of cholesterol drastically in the body.
Due to its concentration of anti oxidants, it prevents the body from suffering from oxidative stress and extreme inflammation, which are causes of cancer in the body. So far studies have proven that regular consumption of Kale is a direct risk reduction factor for prostate, ovarian, breast, colon and gallbladder cancer.
