what makes kale a superfood?
In a single cup of kale (33 calories, 4g net carbs) you get:
- Vitamin A: 206% of the DV (from beta-carotene)
- Vitamin K: 684% of the DV
- Vitamin C: 134% of the DV
- Vitamin B6: 9% of the DV
- Manganese: 26% of the DV
- Calcium: 9% of the DV
- Copper: 10% of the DV
- Potassium: 9% of the DV
- Magnesium: 6% of the DV
- It also contains 3% or more of the DV for vitamin B1 (thiamin), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B3 (niacin), iron and phosphorus
Now that's a nutrient packed green! Considering the low calories needed to obtain all this goodness, kale is considered one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet.
Beyond these nutrients kale is packed with antioxidants like quercitin and kaempferol which have strong protective qualities against disease.
Studies are suggesting that regularly including kale in your diet may have strong preventative effects against cancer.
Kale is also a good plant based source of minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.
Other leafy greens like spinach are quite high in oxalate, a protective substance found in some plants that can prevent absorption of vitamins and minerals, however, kale's oxalate levels are far lower.
So truly, we should all be trying to get as much of this into our diet on a regular basis, and what better way to ensure your intake than an easy to use powder!
