Vitamin K and calcium for bone health
Vitamin K helps to keep the bones healthy and is important for wound healing. In addition to being a vital nutrient for strong healthy bones, calcium helps to regulate our heart beat and allow muscles to contract.
Potassium for heart health
Potassium is important for the correct functioning of the heart muscle and helps to keep the heart beating with a healthy rhythm.
Lutein for eye health
This can help protect the skin and eyes from damage from sunlight by boosting the skin's natural antioxidant capacity.
There are also many ways kale which can benefit you on the outside:
Vitamin C and A for skin
Vitamin C is essential for the manufacture of collagen and structural protein which support that skin and keep it firm. A lack of vitamin A in the diet can also cause the skin to become rough and dry.
Folate and Iron for red blood cells
These are both essential for the manufacture of red blood cells which carry oxygen and nutrients around the body. Lack of iron and folate in the diet can cause anaemia which can cause lethargy and lack of energy.
