Kale is packed with good nutrition. Its rich phytochemical content and 95 different flavonoids (plant nutrients) put kale at the top of the chart for antioxidants and anti-inflammatory foods. Kale shows evidence of lowering the risk of bladder, breast, colon, ovarian, and prostate cancer, and kale also seems to promote eye health and protect against cataracts. It is high in calcium, Vitamin K, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C, and is also a good source of dietary fiber.
