Kale is a known provider of live enzymes for the liver. The Food Babe blog explains that enzymes can trigger cancer-fighting chemicals that have the power to dissolve unhealthy cells throughout your body. I start everyday here in Key West at Help Your Self with a kale; celery (number one in my mind as a high blood pressure fighter), and cucumber-based green drink. This article by the Food Babe is right on the money and will help put you on a course you can follow, as I plan to do, for a lifetime. Read the article with care. You will benefit for years into the future.
Kale is one of the most powerful plant foods in the world. Its one of the things I would take with me on a deserted island. 1 cup of kale contains 190% of your Vitamin A, 90% of your Vitamin C, mega does of B6, Manganese, Calcium, Copper, and Potassium. Kale protects your eyes from the sun, preventing cataracts. The enzymes released from kale go in to your liver and trigger cancer fighting chemicals that literally dissolve unhealthy cells throughout your body. Animals with tumors are given a diet of kale and their tumors actually shrink. These are just some of the benefits!
Juicing kale unlocks even more power because your body is able to absorb the live enzymes and nutrients immediately without having to digest it.
