If you want to crown one of the leafy greens as the best when it comes to how much nutrition they can provide you as well as vitamins and other benefits to our health and body, then kale is the clear winner. While a lot of people do not know just how important kale is to our nutrition, it is actually full of minerals, fibers, and antioxidants and also contains various bioactive compounds.
If we are talking about vitamins, it is especially full of vitamins A, C, and K1. What’s more, studies have shown there are also large amounts of potassium, vitamin B6, magnesium, copper, manganese, and calcium in kale.
One of the best perks that people love about it is that one serving only has about 9 calories and that it could be even healthier than spinach. Not to say that spinach isn’t healthy, but when it comes to nutritious values, kale has fewer oxalates, which are substances that can help bind minerals in your intestines, which can lead to them not being absorbed.
Just make sure to massage your kale thoroughly after washing it to get the best flavor out of it!
