Check out some of its scientifically proven benefits:
like Vitamin A, K, B6, Manganese, Calcium, Copper, Potassium, Magnesium, and many more...
This includes beta-carotene, vitamin C, as well as various flavonoids and polyphenols.
Steamed kale, especially, was found to be 43% more effect than common cholesterol lowering drugs.
Including Sulforaphane a substance that was shown to fight cancer formation.
