What is Kale?
Kale is a cruciferous vegetable, in the same family as broccoli, collard, turnip and mustard greens, and cabbages such as napa, bok choy and brussels sprouts. Kale chips are a healthy alternative to potato or corn chips, and are baked in the oven rather than fried. These homemade vegetable snacks are crunchy, packed with nutrients and lower in calories and sodium than packaged chips.
Just one cup of kale contains more than 1,000 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin K, more than 300 percent of your RDA for vitamin A and 200 percent of the vitamin C you need daily. In additional to those vitamins, kale is a good source of minerals and contains 40 percent of your manganese, 14 percent of your calcium and copper needs and 13 percent of your potassium requirement, for people following a 2,000-calorie diet.
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin; eating it with some type of healthy fat will help your body absorb the nutrient better. Scientist say that vitamin K can improve bone density and help prevent osteoporosis and reduce the risk of bleeding in people with liver disease, because vitamin K helps your blood clot. It is also suggested that vitamin K could reduce the risk of cancer.
Vitamins A and C
Vitamin A helps boost your immune system by protecting the cells that line your intestinal, respiratory and urinary tracts. When these cells break down, harmful bacteria is able to enter your body and cause illness and infection. Vitamin A also protects against night blindness, strengthening your retina so that your eyes can differentiate between subtle shade differences in low light. Vitamin C is an essential vitamin: Although most mammals can produce vitamin C, humans can't, and it must be included in your daily diet. Your body uses vitamin C to manufacture collagen, which is needed to make bones, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels. Vitamin C also is a powerful antioxidant and can protect your cells from free-radical damage.
