Simple Juice Recipes

Kale is considered one of the healthiest superfoods on the planet. But what makes kale so healthy and why should we eat it?

What makes kale unique from other dark leafy green vegetables is that it is one of the rare vegetables that has more calcium, per calorie, than milk. Because of kale’s high calcium content, it aids in preventing bone loss and helps prevent osteoporosis.

Kale is also an excellent source of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll has powerful detoxification effects and cleanses the blood by binding to toxins such as heavy metals and removing them from the body.

Kale is packed with powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants are known to neutralize harmful free radicals in the body which may reduce the risk of certain cancers.

Kale is known for its high lutein content which promotes healthy eyes and vision.

Kale is high in vitamins and fiber. One cup of raw kale satisfies 5% of your daily allowance of fiber and provides more than 100% of the daily allowance of vitamin A and vitamin C.

Kale also promotes weight loss. One cup of kale contains only 36 calories.

Kale comes in many varieties such as green curly kale, lacinto (a.k.a. dino or dinosaur) kale, Red Russian kale, Redbor kale, and several others. Check out these kale juice recipes to add more of this leafy green superfood into your diet.
