Kale Green is abundantly rich in nutrients. In addition to conventional antioxidants like vitamin C, beta-carotene, and manganese, kale also provides us with over 40 different flavonoids, including kaempferol and quercetin. Many of the flavonoids in kale are also now known to function not only as antioxidants, but also as anti-inflammatory compounds.
Kale is an especially rich source of glucosinolates, and once kale is eaten and digested, these glucosinolates can be converted by the body into cancer preventive compounds.
Kale contains nearly twice the amount of vitamin K as most of its fellow cruciferous vegetables.
