Just got done consulting with a patient and realized what is missing at this moment. Kale! I am going to go get a kale salad I thought. Here are the many different reasons why kale is so fabulous.
Kale is a complete protein. We need complete proteins to do many metabolic processes in the body and one of them is keeping or building muscle. Kale is also a cruciferous vegetable. This is important for hormone processing and a heavy hitter for liver support. Kale and its rich green color (an anti-oxidant) is important to protect itself from the sun but also you from oxidation. Oxidizing is a free radical running through your body, similar to the damaging affects of the sun on a car's paint job, and an anti-oxidant is what repairs and protects the body. Issues with kale can be that the toxic load is to great that some initially will get "flu like" symptoms when consuming a lot and even more so when juicing kale.
