Kale is currently incredibly popular for a number of different health benefits and is being touted as one of the top superfoods available right now. Does it taste super? Not really if we’re being completely honest, but other than that, it has it all going for it.
For one, kale is just 30 calories per serving, meaning that you can eat a fair amount without worrying about weight gain. At the same time, that small serving of calories will be enough to net you an entire day’s worth of vitamin C – vitamin C being a crucial nutrient for improving your immune system and for combating the action of free radicals to fight cancer and aging.
On top of that, kale also comes with over twice your RDA of vitamin A. This is fantastic news for everyone who isn’t pregnant (women who are pregnant should seek to reduce their intake of vitamin A on the other hand). It’s also packed with vitamin K and of course – calcium. Specifically, you’ll get a whopping 101 milligrams of calcium with every serving!
