 Kale and Spinach

Dark green veggies, which is a food group that includes leafy greens such as kale, spinach and dandelion greens, should make regular appearances in your diet.

Kale and spinach — both “super veggies” are packed with nutrients because they’re leafy greens.

Kale’s deep colour means there is a high concentration of nutrients, and that translates into a range of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

Spinach is a healthy and inexpensive way of improving our intellectual capabilities.

High blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, depression and constipation are enemies to Kale and spinach.

Vitamin K

Kale and spinach all differ slightly in their nutrient content, but they all come packed with nutritional value and make smart additions to any health-conscious diet.

Kale and spinach greens all serve as excellent sources of vitamin K. Your body uses vitamin K to activate a range of proteins, including proteins needed for bone development, as well as lung and heart cell growth.
