Kale - One of the World's Healthiest Foods

Kale*

Dieticians and nutritionists agree that kale is one of those leafy greens that is so jam packed with nutrition that it puts kale high on the list of the world’s healthiest foods. Health benefits of inducing raw kale can include blood glucose control, lowering the risk of cancer, lowering blood pressure and the risk for asthma, and improving eye health.

Eye Health


Lutein and Zeaxanthin are disease fighting compounds found in kale and other leafy greens. These dietary carotenoids promote healthy eyesight, and there are current studies to determine the positive effects of dietary supplements composed of these compounds. There is ongoing research to test kale extract's effect on age related macular degeneration.

Antioxidant Power


Foods like kale and carrots are high in beta-carotene, a natural antioxidant found in many vegetables and fruit. Laboratory and animal research has shown that exogenous antioxidants can help prevent free radical damage associated with the development of cancer. More specifically in Dr. Linda Posh's article, "The Health Benefits of Kale", studies show that kale can specifically help stop breast cancer cell proliferation:
Research suggests that phytochemicals, sulforaphane and indoles found in kale, may protect against cancer. The naturally rich sulfur content of kale (sulforaphane) can cause detoxification enzymes in the body. This in turn is proposed to help clear carcinogenic substances in the body. This also triggers the liver to produce enzymes that detoxify cancer causing chemicals, of which we all are exposed on a daily basis. A recently new study in the Journal of Nutrition (2004) demonstrates that sulforaphane helps stop breast cancer cell proliferation. 1
