What are the health benefits of Kale?

  • Kale is an amazing source of vitamin K, A and C.
  • Vitamin A helps maintain normal skin and vision.
  • Kale contains high amounts of manganese, copper and phytochemicals
  • 1 portion of kale (80g) contains 120 mg of calcium, a very useful mineral for vegans and people on dairy free diets.
  • Kale is rich in vitamin B and this supports the growth of a mother’s tissues during pregnancy, plays a role in normal formation of blood and supports normal function of the immune system.
  • Kale is virtually fat free and low in calories.
