Kale is one of my food hero’s, and here is why,
Containing a hefty amount of Vitamin A (skin, antioxidant and immunity) ,Calcium (bones, muscles and teeth) Iron (oxygenation of cells and blood building) Vitamin K (antioxidant, blood clotting) Magnesium (nerves, bones, muscle) B6 (metabolism, skin)
One cup of kale contains 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber, and 15% of the daily requirement of calcium and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), 40% of magnesium, 180% of vitamin A, 200% of vitamin C, and 1,020% of vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus.
Forget the apple! A cup of Kale a day keeps the doctor away!
