Green means go, especially when it comes to kale. The vibrant green color of kale means it is full of health benefits. For example, the vitamins and minerals found in kale serve as anti-inflammatory agents, immune boosters, and aid in cancer prevention. Kale is also rich in antioxidants that help protect the body from damage caused by cell death and is a natural detoxifier, helping clean the body from impurities. The high fiber content in kale aids in digestion by trapping cholesterol, preventing it from building up in the walls of the heart.
