Benefits of Kale – Reasons Why You Should Include it In your Diet

Last updated by Ryan

Juicing is a fun and popular way for people to get more variation and nutrition in their diet.

Juicing is considered to be a means of unlocking a food's true potential, freeing up nutrients that would otherwise remain locked away in the plant's indigestible cellulose. 

Nearly any fruit or vegetable can be juiced in order to unleash all of its goodness, but juices made from fresh leafy greens are considered the best options by far due to their nutritional load. Among them, kale reigns supreme. Here are some of the benefits of juicing kale.

Phytonutrients

Like all cruciferous vegetables, kale contains a wide array of health-promoting phytonutrients and antioxidants. One phytonutrient, called indole-3-carbinol, has been shown in studies to slow the growth of malignant cells, induce apoptosis and prevent tumors from developing blood vessels. In one study, the substance had been found to be a potent fighter of cervical cancer. Within the 12 week study, 50 percent of the women who had cervical cancer experienced a complete recovery.

Vitamins and Minerals

Because human beings are not designed to be herbivores, our teeth and digestive systems are not able to efficiently extract most nutrients from produce. As a result, eating leafy greens and other plant matter in their natural form prevents us from getting a lot of beneficial nutrition. This is where juicing your kale can come in handy. This process extracts the useful contents from the cellulose, making vitamins and minerals much more bioavailable. For every serving of kale, you will receive significant amounts of vitamins C, B and K as well as the minerals copper, magnesium, non-heme iron, phosphorus and calcium.

Increases Testosterone

Men and women who are interested in getting stronger, building muscle and maintaining a healthy body may wish to consider adding kale juice to their diets. One of the biggest benefits of juicing kale comes from its sulforaphane, an antioxidant compound that helps to keep levels of estrogen under control while boosting usable testosterone. By this method, sulforaphane is also under study as a potent anti-cancer substance. Researchers believe that the antioxidant could be helpful in the fight against breast, ovarian, uterine and other estrogen-dependent cancers.

Feeds Probiotic Bacteria

Inside of your intestines reside numerous varieties of bacteria. Some of these are potentially harmful, some are benign and others are beneficial. The beneficial ones, called probiotics, provide immune support, produce serotonin and keep the potentially harmful bacteria in check. To make them flourish, you must supply them with plenty of food rich in soluble fiber. In addition, cruciferous vegetables like kale are particularly adept at encouraging intestinal probiotic populations. Drinking a glass or two of kale juice each day nourishes your beneficial intestinal flora, which in turn nourish you.
