Get your daily dose of greens with the healthiest four leafy greens and make yourself a refreshing salad. They contain bitter constituents that are incredibly important for your liver.
Combine with a rich, creamy miso & ginger dressing, drizzle with fresh, zesty lemon and this will be an absolute delight for any meal.
Rising star kale certainly deserves its place in the spotlight. Rich in vitamins A, C, K, B6, as well as calcium and magnesium. It definitely earns its title as a “superfood” — it’s packed with anti-cancer and cholesterol-lowering antioxidants. These antioxidants also promote heart and eye health.
Collard greens are a true leafy rockstar. For one thing, a serving of collard greens has more calcium than a glass of milk! They’re also packed with several potent anti-cancer properties, and are perhaps the best leafy green for lowering cholesterol. They’re also rich in vitamins K, C, & A.
Popeye isn’t the only one raving about the greatness of spinach. This leafy green is rich in iron, calcium, and a whole alphabet of vitamins. One property in spinach has been shown to help combat prostate cancer more than any other popular veggie!
With colorful stems and bright green leaves, chard is definitely one of the prettiest greens out there. And, with plenty of vitamins A and C, as well as hefty doses of iron and fiber, its nutritional value is nothing to sneeze at, either.
