Benefits Of Kale With A Spinach Kale Power Smoothie Recipe

Did you know that kale is one of the most nutrient dense foods? Of all of the superfood leafy greens that there are, kale wins out for a top spot in nutrients by weight. Kale is a virtual powerhouse of vitamins and minerals.

 

A 100 gram serving of kale contains:

  • 200% of your RDA for Vitamin C
  • 300% for Vitamin A (from beta-carotene)
  • 1000% of the RDA for Vitamin K1
  • Vitamin B6
  • Potassium
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Copper
  • Manganese.
Kale is also low in substances called oxalates. Oxalates prevent the absorption of minerals in the intestine and thus decrease the bioavailability of food. Kale is also loaded with some beneficial bioactive compounds like Isothiocyanates and Indole-3-Carbinol both of which have been shown to fight cancer in some recent studies.

 

Kale with its leathery thick skin provides some other benefits as well. Unlike lettuce and spinach, kale holds up much better in cooking giving it a much wider application in the kitchen. Bottom line is, you don't need a diploma from Yale to know the benefits of kale!

There is a master anabolic switch hidden deep inside your cells. It unlocks rapid muscle growth, stimulates tissue repair, activates your immune system, and generally makes us stronger and more capable. 

It’s known as “mTOR.”

You may have heard of it in the bodybuilding and biohacking worlds. 

However, this master anabolic switch is not as straightforward as some might like you to believe. 

The equation is more complicated than mTOR = more muscle gain.
