Health Benefits of Kale
We have all heard kale is healthy, but why? One of the main reasons is how high in fiber it is. Fiber is a huge part of a balanced diet. It is also low in calories and has absolutely no fat. Plus, it has tons of nutrients and vitamins! Some of these include vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin A, manganese, calcium, potassium, vitamin E… The list could go on forever! There are tons of health benefits to all these vitamins and minerals as well, such as healthy skin and hair, aiding digestion, heart disease prevention, and more.
