Kale is a natural cancer fighter – it contains an abundance of glucosinolate enzymes which stop cancer cells from becoming active and speeds up the removal of carcinogens from your system.

An anti-cancer compound found in kale helps your liver more efficiently remove toxins and its high levels of fiber have been found to lower LDL “bad cholesterol”.

Kale gives you more iron per calorie than beef and it also delivers 2g of protein per cup, make it it a viable meat alternative.

Also a wonderful non-dairy source of calcium, with more per calorie than milk and is easier for the body to digest!  It also has anti-aging qualities with high levels of Vitamin C which makes fewer wrinkles and firmer, softer skin.
